The aim of this study was to find out whether youth entrepreneurs in a South African township
consider entrepreneurship education and training as a useful vehicle for navigating the challenging waters of
entrepreneurship. The method used to collect data was a self-administered questionnaire. Findings revealed that
the participants thought of entrepreneurship education and training as a viable tool for entrepreneurship development.
The study recommends further research on other townships with similar characteristics to enable a better
understanding of the unique needs of the different townships. This is on the basis that should an intervention be
proposed, each township should then have a much more customised training and development strategy.
