Entrepreneurship in education must be observed from the viewpoint of creation, generation of ideas, and implementation of pedagogical innovations that allow teachers to develop their potential as entrepreneurs and manage the development of entrepreneurial skills in students. The purpose of this document is to present the current status of a research plan for a doctoral thesis concerning training for the development of educational and social entrepreneurship competences in future teachers by implementing training models with open, experiential education, using educational resources, open practices, and evidence aimed to create innovation and generate social value. To understand the problems on which the research topic focuses, we present an advance of the literature review, as well as the proposal for the design of a mixed-integrated methodology that embeds an explanatory sequential method to collect quantitative and qualitative data. With the results, we hope to propose an innovative training model that links the professional training of teachers with educational and social entrepreneurship competences that contribute to sustainable development. The progress of this research to date shows the theoretical contributions underlying our theoretical framework and the methodology.
