Entrepreneurship Education and Training Programmes: A Lifespan Development Perspective
Dr Gerardine Matthews-Smith G.Matthews-Smith@napier.ac.uk
In this chapter, we propose that EETPs should be understood as a lifelong dynamic process and highlight how entrepreneur knowledge, skills and abilities develop across the lifespan (Bohlmann et al., 2017; Brieger et al., 2021). A lifespan theory perspective proposes that the journey to become an entrepreneur proceeds through various stages starting in preschool, childhood, adolescence, to emerging adulthood and the full spectrum of adulthood (Arnett, 2007; Baltes et al., 2006; Erikson and Erikson, 1998; Liu et al., 2021).
