    Abstract

    Vocational entrepreneurship education is associated with specific techniques and teaching methods, which include face-to-face student contact and knowledge alignment with labour market needs. We argue that entrepreneurship education provides particular benefits in different educational conditions and modes because it allows students to develop entrepreneurial behaviour for different vocations. This paper presents the results of a study involving students enrolled on technical courses at a public institution in Brazil. The study investigates how vocational teaching and learning conditions such as entrepreneurial experiences and profile of lecturers, affect student’s attitudes and perceptions towards entrepreneurship education in a vocational teaching context.
