The results of one portion of student survey on the national representative sample of vocational high school students N=2 353 related to the perception of vocational school students towards the carrier of entrepreneur is presented in this article. The research is administrated within the National Centre for External Evaluation of Education project -Representation of Entrepreneurial Contents in high school educational programmes- which has for its primary goal, using qualitative and quantitative methods, to establish the attitudes of key agents towards the entrepreneurial contents in the high schools implementing different programmes. Namely, we assume that the students in vocational schools represent the core of future entrepreneurs on whose economic future of the country is widely based. These students are generally positively orientated towards the possibility of carrier as entrepreneurs, but they self-evaluate their knowledge in practical procedures at medium quality. In large majority they believe that practical skills for starting the business can be learned 92.5% equally easy throughout additional education signing in for a course, practical work placements and working for somebody else, but most difficult throughout starting their one private business. This finding suggest that students from final grades in vocational schools have high expectations from basic, extra-curricular and additional educational programmes but are in fact rather unwilling to take the initiative.
