Projects we are involved with at the moment…

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 aims to develop a new teaching methodology for primary schools and to explore its potential. The CRADLE teaching methodology will employ a cross-curricular activity-based, student-centred, exploratory teaching and learning approach, focusing on the simultaneous development of foreign language and entrepreneurial skills among young pupils (aged 8-12). The implementation of the CRADLE methodology starting in primary schools will increase the benefits of transporting the acquired transversal skills into secondary school and, ultimately, beyond school boundaries into the pre-professional and professional world.

coming soon  EntreComp for Teachers

This EU-funded forward-looking cooperation project will address the professionalisation of teachers through a skills framework model to understand and strengthen teacher competences for entrepreneurial learning. FLCPs are trans-national co-operation projects aiming to identify, test, develop or assess innovative policy approaches that have the potential of becoming mainstreamed and giving input for improving education and training systems.

EntreComp for Teachers will impact on building creative and entrepreneurial mindsets and bringing in real-life context within their teaching. The project will develop and test EntreComp for Teachers via (1) EntreCompEdu a Professional Entrepreneurial Skills framework. The project will consult widely to develop a competence based framework outlining the skills that teachers can use to facilitate entrepreneurial learning in the classroom, supporting by extensive user testing with learners, teachers, leaders, community and business. An (2) Implementation Practice Map, collated by teachers and for teachers, will contain practical examples of how teachers themselves have used these skills in their teaching. This will be followed by development and testing of a (3) Scalable Model for Initial and Continuing Professional Development based on ECT, using an innovative social learning media to network and support both trainee and existing teachers to enhance their skills.

 

EntreAssess 
We partner with RG Menntaráðgjöf slf on this Erasmus+ project (formally known as PEAT-EU: Practical Entrepreneurial Assessment for Teachers) to develop innovative assessment protocols for entrepreneurial learning, working with partners involved in cutting edge work across Europe.

  Practice into Policy: PiP

Through PiP, we put a spotlight on entrepreneurial learning projects supported by EU funding. PiP is about showcasing the diversity of entrepreneurial learning from projects from across Europe – finding out what EU projects have achieved and what they learned in the process. We want to show the value and learning from these projects, disseminate the good work happening across Europe and make sure further projects can learn from what has gone before.

Ecosystemapp Eco System App

We sit on the Advisory Board of this Erasmus+ project to provide advice and policy perspectives that develops a resource centre for entrepreneurship educators.

  DOIT – Entrepreneurial skills for young social innovators in an open digital world

We advise this Horizon2020 EU-funded project that aims to deliver and spread a new approach for early entrepreneurship education within Europe. DOIT contributes to youth employment and to create new jobs in the social economy by nurturing in young pupils seeds for active social innovation: entrepreneurial mind-sets, knowhow and skills. The project empowers primary and secondary school pupils (6-16 years) alongside educators to apply open innovation methods, digital maker tools and collaboration skills to tackle societal problems.
