Many institutions embark on entrepreneurship education, as ultimately start-ups benefit economic growth; but
institutions unfortunately lack tools and benchmarks for assessing the quality of their programmes. The
uniqueness of different programmes, however, does not allow meaningful comparative assessment between
them, so this study applies an assessment model that gives feedback on a case study.
An in-depth case-study application of the assessment model indicated the following: Programme context;
Entrepreneurial knowledge and skills; Business knowledge and skills; Approaches; Business plan utilisation; and
the Facilitator, as key constructs for evaluation. The assessment identified major shortcomings and strengths of
the case under investigation. The article concludes that the assessment tool accurately measured outcomes of the
programme despite its specific context, and that the programme covers the basic requirements for entrepreneurial
education that are required by the literature. The assessment tool has general application value.
Organisations like the Qualifications Authority could use the Entrepreneurship Education Assessment Model
(EEAM) to ensure that service providers offer quality programmes. Assessors and educators would benefit from
better understanding of how various constructs contribute to the successful delivery of entrepreneurship
