The impact of entrepreneurship training on entrepreneurial self-efficacy, on entrepreneurship-related knowledge gain, and on the moderating role of gender on these relationships was studied. 122 junior high-school boys and girls participated in a one-year entrepreneurship training programme; a matched sample of 144 students did not participate. Participants' entrepreneurial self-efficacy and entrepreneurial knowledge were assessed at the beginning and end of the programme. Boys benefited from the entrepreneurship training much more than girls. Results are further discussed in light of gender role theories.
