We work collaboratively to drive entrepreneurial and creative learning in policy and practice. Below are some of the projects that we are involved with at the moment to embed high quality entrepreneurial and creative learning practice into formal and non-formal learning.
|CRADLE (Creating Activity-Designed Language-Learning Environments for Entrepreneurship Education)
CRADLE is an Erasmus+ project that developed a teaching methodology for primary school educators to simultaneously foster foreign language and entrepreneurial skills. The CRADLE methodology employs a cross-curricular, activity-based, student-centred teaching approach and is aimed at pupils aged 8-12. The CRADLE methodology including lesson plans and activity ideas is available for free on the CRADLE website.
The ELYME project supports migrants permanently residing in the EU with a targeted entrepreneurship training programme. ELYME support migrants in starting up their business and support its growth for them to become self-confident, self-employed and build a successful enterprise in the host countries. The training programme and a thriving community of migrant entrepreneurs supporting one another is available on the ELYME website.
EntreComp360 wants to support actors in the lifelong learning sector to develop, validate and enhance entrepreneurship as a key competence. The project will set up a one-stop-shop website to help actors from across formal education, youth organisations, employers and business to make use of the EntreComp framework. It will make guides, toolboxes, MOOCs and other material freely available to foster the uptake of the framework.
EntreCompEdu fosters 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 will also develop 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.
EntreComp Europe sets up national and regional EntreComp communities to explore the use of EntreComp in youth work, education, employment and enterprise.
ParENTrepreneurs aims to support parents and other family members in their role as educators to foster the entrepreneurial spirit and skills of their children. Bantani has developed the parENTrepreneurs Competence Framework that will be the foundation for a training course for parents. The project will also develop a social learning platform for parents to allow networking among parents and develop a guide to validation and recognition to help parents understand the wide variety of entrepreneurial skills they already possess.
YOUCOOPE is an European project that aims to encourage educational institutions to include the cooperative model in their curricula and to promote it among young students and entrepreneurs.
The ten institutions that promote this initiative will design innovative training modules with resources, methodologies and tools for educators to integrate cooperative entrepreneurship concepts, skills and real experiences in their classroom. These resources will also encourage them to seek the collaboration of existing cooperatives from their local context, to both gain awareness but also to facilitate school-to-work transition and real experiences.
