Discover EntreCompEdu

EntreCompEdu, co-funded by the Erasmus + programme of the European Union, aimed to foster educators’ entrepreneurial education skills to strengthen their creative and entrepreneurial mindsets. The project adapted the EntreComp framework to the professional environment of educators and developed a free online training course. EntreCompEdu also developed a practice map collated by and for teachers with practical examples of how teachers foster an entrepreneurial mindset in their students. The EntreCompEdu professional skills framework, online learning course, and practice map are available on the EntreCompEdu website.

This project is now being delivered as a third training pilot with teachers within EntreComp Europe, and partners are actively seeking opportunities to scale-up the programme.

We invite you to explore more resources from EntreCompEdu, developed by Bantani.

EntreCompEdu Framework

The Educators’ Professional Competence Framework for Entrepreneurial Learning
Supporting teachers and trainers to deliver entrepreneurial competences through their teaching.

What makes entrepreneurial education distinctive is its focus on generating ideas, products and services that have value for others. While this might suggest a narrow economic or commercial purpose, this value also takes cultural and social forms.

EntreCompEdu Module 1 – Entrepreneurial knowledge and understanding

This module discusses the knowledge and understanding teachers and trainers need to teach entrepreneurial skills. It explains why entrepreneurial education is important and how teachers can show that they value its relevance in their practice. EntreCompEdu, the professional framework for teaching entrepreneurial competences, is introduced and shown how it links to EntreComp. The module discusses the six principles that support EntreCompEdu and how these can guide pedagogy: facilitating creative thinking through the learning process; promoting active entrepreneurial learning in real-life contexts; fostering purposeful collaboration both in and beyond the school; encouraging learners to create value for others; stimulating reflection, flexible thinking and learning from experience; and making entrepreneurial competences an explicit part of learning and assessment.

EntreCompEdu Module 2 – Planning and organising entrepreneurial learning environments

This module describes the factors that need to be considered when planning and organising entrepreneurial learning environments. It discusses approaches to planning, the interdisciplinary nature of entrepreneurial learning and ethical and sustainability issues. The challenges associated with writing entrepreneurial learning goals, objectives and outcomes are also discussed. Finally, the module suggests how to create a stimulating learning environment. This includes creative uses of space, time, classroom layout and other resources to facilitate learning

It highlights the importance of self-evaluation, the use of research and other evidence, as well as building professional networks. The module is informed by the principles of deliberate practice and critical reflection, while offering practical examples of how these can support professional learning.

EntreCompEdu Module 4 – Assessment

It begins by outlining why we assess and highlights the importance of integrating assessment through the learning process. Practical suggestions are provided to address the challenges associated with assessing particular areas, such as a sense of initiative and creativity. The module emphasizes the value of fostering student-led assessment, the key role of high-quality feedback and the need for educators to celebrate student progress and achievements in a range of real-life contexts.
