PIETE Initial Teacher Education (ITE) methodological framework allows a coherent mapping of actors, artefacts and practices involved in the pre-service teacher training within education systems. Thus, the framework makes it possible to understand the functionality of Teacher Training Centers (TTCs) in terms of institutional circumstances, curricular focus and responsibilities of educators involved in ISCED 3-4 (Upper secondary education and post-secondary non-tertiary education) teacher development. It helps identifying areas in which elements of Entrepreneurship Education (EE) – as understood under the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp) – can be most efficiently integrated.
The framework has two dimensions: On the one hand, it explains how Initial Teacher Education (ITE) work from a systemic perspective, on the other hand it asks where Entrepreneurship Education (EE) can be found within this perspective.

This framework aims to be easily applicable to different national or regional contexts. Its functionality will be showcased by applying it onto the educational contexts of PIETE partner institutions in Austria (PHT), Poland (UBB), and Hungary (USZ). The cases will be presented as separate reports in the respective national languages and English.
