Entrepreneurship Education for young People
Know About Business (KAB) is an entrepreneurship education programme developed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) to teach entrepreneurship in technical and vocational education and training institutions as well as in secondary and higher education institutions. The programme seeks to prepare in-school youth – young men and women - for the transition from school to the world of work by letting them discover and develop entrepreneurial competencies and basic business management skills through a range of games and exercises.
The typical age group is youth from 15-24 years, but the games and exercises can be used to teach entrepreneurship to any age or target group. The complete KAB package consists of a total of 80 hours of games and exercises and is made up of eight modules, each representing a key area of entrepreneurship.
This tailor-made course is available upon request and may be customized for local, national, and international organizations. Contact us to learn more.

Because learning doesn't have to be boring
KAB is directed to teachers and educators in technical and vocational education and training institutions, general secondary education and teachers and lecturers in higher education such as universities and polytechnics.
KAB can be used in any educational setting and can be adapted for specific technical and general courses where an educational institution or a teacher wishes to reinforce entrepreneurship learning outcomes.

The ultimate goal of KAB is to equip young people with skills and competencies to start their own venture at some point in their life as well as to work productively as employees in enterprises as intrapreneurs. KAB helps young people to explore and develop an entrepreneurial mind-set and attitude that can be applied in all aspects of life whether a young person choses to become an entrepreneur or an intrapreneur.
The ITCILO would be happy to send you a budget with the costs of organizing a Training of Teachers Programme for your organization.
