The School Counselor Leading (Social) Entrepreneurship within High Schools

Gemma Cuervo, Isabel Alvarez


This article aims to determine the role that should exercise a School Counselor in social entrepreneurship education programs. To achieve this objective, first, we have analyzed the main approaches of these programs that are being carried out currently in Europe, which has allowed getting a concrete and contextualized idea about the status of the situation and studies done until the present day. Secondly, we have been held a qualitative research based on the realization of three semi-structured interviews to three specialists involved in entrepreneurship educational programs from different levels. After analyzing the data, it was concluded that the most viable option for achieving the target would be including a proposal about a program of entrepreneurship education in which the functions carried out by the professional would be in a detailed, contextualized and well defined situation. This program has been designed to develop in a secondary school and tries to compensate the difficulties and limitations of the environment for its implementation. The importance of this research lies in the fact that the number of studies on the subject is very little and there are very few focused on the value that can bring School Counselors and the role they should play in these entrepreneurship education programs.
