CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

The French association Entreprendre Pour Apprendre (EPA), which aims to “foster the entrepreneurial spirit of young people,” announced in 2016 that it had supported only 27,000 young people out of nearly 13 million students and apprentices in the French school system. Thus, despite political recommendations, it appears that entrepreneurship education remains restricted to those enrolled in higher education.Based on an example of a mini-enterprise in a collège (secondary school), this article proposes to explore the students’ representations and experiences of the project. The objective is to observe how an entrepreneurial experience leads to the mobilization of different resources, the development of skills, and, more generally, the creation of an entrepreneurial spirit among students. This work allows us to enrich the reflection on the role that entrepreneurial education should have in collèges, as well as the conditions of its deployment.
