The global economic crisis has demonstrated that Slovenia is lagging behind the more organised and globally competitive states as measured by a number of important indicators, and has exposed its lack of adequate strategies and policies to improve the situation. This paper presents findings on the work of enterprise circles and the current state of Slovenian primary schools in respect of the promotion of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. It examines those factors within schools and the broader local environment that can promote or hinder the development of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship among pupils. The objectives are clarified by research approaches that connect empirical data to those social circumstances that affect how the issue is understood and how stakeholders explain it. The findings indicate a lack of awareness of how important it is to create links between the education system and the labour market. Teachers who have participated in activities to promote the development of creativity and innovation are more critical of their schools, while pupils still find it difficult to express themselves differently within the school system.
