Netwerk for Teaching Entrepeneurship


About Us

About Us

NFTE is active in 13 countries around the world and more than 4,100 teachers have been trained to date, who have implemented the NFTE concept with more than 300,000 students.

In 2004 NFTE-Germany was founded as a non-profit association and so far almost 500 teachers have been trained, so that in the summer of 2010 more than 5,000 students in more than 300 schools in Germany will have completed the NFTE course. The focus of the German NFTE branch is the training of teaching staff in focal points of the German school system. Secondary schools, secondary schools and comprehensive schools as well as vocational schools in problematic areas of large cities and in structurally weak regions are selected for the German NFTE program.

Recently, special needs schools and vocational colleges have also been increasingly testing the funding concept from Berlin. Before the work with the young people can start, the teacher has to be trained by NFTE-Germany. Only certified trainers, so-called Certified Entrepreneurship Teachers (CETs) are allowed to teach the program. In this way, the organization can ensure the quality of the courses and provide support during implementation.
