The article aims at the training of General Economic Theory teachers in Slovakia. It also deals with the ENTAGLE project which we are trying to analyse. The project is built on the relationship of vocational education students towards enterprising. The project itself should involve teachers of vocational subjects in terms of teaching about entrepreneurship opportunities in the EU. It is an international project including other countries except Slovakia: Lithuania, Spain, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Cyprus. There is described the educational system of Slovakia and the position of GET teachers in preparation. Similarly, it deals with the issue of GET teacher’s training. There is also description of Complementary pedagogical studies besides proper GET teacher education. We are trying to uncover the common problems of young people unemployment in the EU countries as well as to outline possible solutions in terms of support for education in the given context, with an impact on the increase of entrepreneurial competencies. Since the implementation of the project, teachers are expected to acquire competences that will lead them to meaningful GET teaching towards the future realization of graduates in business. The paper is complemented with the results of qualitative research that was trying to monitor the situation of entrepreneurship practices and entrepreneurial teaching in partner countries.
