"We really need entrepreneurial education but it's not as embedded as it needs to be. It's a great experience when it happens but it often takes a teacher going beyond their role to deliver it. It's an add on".

Gayle Houlahan, Coordinator of HSIE & Manager of School Operations at St Columba Anglican School.

Insights into the NSW Youth Entrepreneurial Education Ecosystem

In today's world, providing young people with the entrepreneurial tools, skillsets and education to solve society's most wicked problems and get them job-ready has never been more vital.

This is why Young Change Agents (YCA) and Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) have joined forces to provide insights into the state of entrepreneurial education for youth (aged 10-24 years) across the state of New South Wales (NSW).

YCA and SSE spoke with a broad cross-section of voices including youth, parents/guardians, education bodies, Government, industry and community on the state of entrepreneurial education for youth in NSW, to capture and amplify their perspectives and to develop and share recommendations that can help strengthen the future state of entrepreneurial education for youth in NSW.

We invite you to read the full Paper outlining the insights of each stakeholder group, as well as the characteristics of an ideal future state we identified and the recommendations to help us get there.
