The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between the entrepreneurship characteristics and metacognitive awareness levels of pre service teachers. Qualitative research method is used in this study and the study is designed as a relational survey. The sample of the study was 441 pre se rvice teachers studying at the faculty of education of a public university in Turkey during the spring semester in 2015 2016 academic year. Random sampling was used to determine the sample group. The instruments used to collect the data in the study were “ Metacognitive Awareness Scale for Pre service Teachers (MASP)” developed by Duman (2013) and “Entrepreneurship Scale for University Students (ESUS)” developed by Yılmaz and Sünbül (2009). SPSS 22 package program was used to analyze the collected data. In d etermining the relationships between the scores from MASP and ESUS scales, pearson product moment correlation analysis was conducted. In determining MASP’s prediction of the scores from the ESUS scale multiple linear regression analysis was used. The resul ts indicated a positive relationship at medium level between entrepreneurship characteristics and metacognitive awareness levels of pre service teachers (r=.565 p<0.01). In addition, there are significant positive relationships between entrepreneurship cha racteristics and all sub scales of MASP. It was found that the metacognitive awareness levels of pre service teachers predicted their entrepreneurship characteristics at a rate of 43%. It is possible to say that activities towards improving metacognitive a wareness could have positive impacts on entrepreneurship.
