Today's students live in a society, recognised from global perspectives, which is mobile and manifold. When they finish their studies, they will be working in a society filled with rapid changes and development, maybe in a job that do not yet exist. Faced with such a scenario, do primary and lower secondary schools emphasise the right competences? The purpose of this article is to explore how schools may develop an entrepreneurial didactics. We look at how two schools develop pedagogical entrepreneurship as a basic foundation for the school's activities, which emphasise students' entrepreneurial learning. The two schools invest in the active, critical and creative students who take responsibility together with others. They want the students to be resources of their local environment, and to have the opportunity to develop competences that are viable in the future. Students' co-determination, relevance and trust are identified as key elements in their development of teaching for entrepreneurial learning.
