Accountants urge Govt to introduce entrepreneurship as school subject

A new report is recommending that entrepreneurship be made a second-level subject.

The report from the Institute of Certified Accountants in Ireland is recommending that it is included on the curriculum, in a bid to foster a spirit of entrepreneurship from a young age.

Entrepreneur Sean Gallagher, who is supporting the call, said: "If you want to develop a long-term entrepreneurial culture you need to start early. It is about telling young people that entrepreneurship is a real viable option.

"You don't have to find that nine to five job, or if they do, after a number of years they could use that expertise to launch their own business."
