‘Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship’ can be broadly defined as the capacity to turn ideas into action, ideas that generate value for someone other than oneself. Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship is a transversal key competence, which every citizen needs for personal fulfilment and development, active citizenship, social inclusion and employment in the knowledge society. (Entrepreneurship Competence Framework, 2016).
In the European reference framework ‘Entrepreneurship and a sense of initiative’ is one of eight key competences for lifelong learning which citizens require for their personal fulfilment, social inclusion, active citizenship and employability in a knowledge-based society.All students should have access to entrepreneurship education, which should be offered in all types and at all levels of education. Teachers and schools are key agents: an individual’s chances of receiving good quality entrepreneurship education has depended mainly on the enthusiasm of teaching staff and their ability to secure the right resources. Teachers have a critical role to play in the development of entrepreneurship education.
In this respect,with this project we aim to build a system that ultimately enables all students to receive high quality entrepreneurship education that they can use at every stage of the educational process to develop social entrepreneurship competencies
To realize this aim to train 32 students through 2 blended mobility of school learners and 115 teachers in 4 joint staff trainings embedded with MOOCs with 4 secondary schools and four non profit organisations from Hungary,Turkey,Greece and Slovenia in 24 months,
In the long run,the project is expected to :
stimulate innovative and entrepreneurial mindsets among students by introducing entrepreneurship as a key competence in school curricula, particularly in general secondary education and ensure that it is correctly reflected in teaching material;
ensure that the importance of entrepreneurship is correctly reflected in education systems
design and develop a new model of entrepreneurship education boosting social innovation and social entrepreneurial skills in young people within the School education system in Europe.
