dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to assess the general enterprising qualities such as the need for achievement, need for autonomy, creative tendency, calculated risk taking and drive and determination amongst learners at selected secondary schools in the Capricorn District Municipality of Limpopo Province. The intention was to suggest strategies to be used to enhance entrepreneurial qualities and to develop these learners to become successful entrepreneurs in future. Commercial and non-commercial learners participated in the study. Data were collected from 1931 respondents constituting 31% of the population. The findings revealed that the majority of learners did not possess entrepreneurial qualities. Among others, the following recommendations were offered: • Schools should teach learners to put theory into practice by offering a learner’s mini business program within their curriculum. • Career guidance programmes should be improved and commence at grade eight and continue to grade twelve. Key concepts: entrepreneurship, entrepreneur and entrepreneurship education. en_US
