For the 2015-2016 academic year, an updated program – “Basics of Entrepreneurship” is planned to be launched in 221 public schools across Georgia. The subject will aid secondary school students to develop planning, organization skills, as well as help the youth to enhance the capability to make certain choices and decisions. The subject will give the youth to self-express, and self-employ in the future. In addition, the subject also helps the students to make right decisions in choosing the exact profession which they are suited for.
The program is carried out by the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce. Within the scope of the project, students have the opportunity to form their mini companies, elect the board of directors from their peers, carry out capitalization (simulation), assess the needs of the customers, begin to produce business documents and sell manufactured products. The students are introduced to a variety of industries, and have the possibility to learn their corresponding activities.
