We looked at the impact of an entrepreneurship education programme (EEP) provided to 'reallife,' would-be entrepreneurs. The Shapero (1982) model was adapted to conduct an evaluation of the 'Enterprise & You' project, an EEP which was run by the University of Northampton in the UK and funded by the European Social Fund (ESF). Questionnaires were administered to 52 participants before and after the programme to measure entrepreneurial intentions. The results show that perceived feasibility increased in programme participants by 36.44% and perceived desirability increased by 3.31%. We then discuss the findings and offer conclusions and ideas for future research.
