Entrepreneurship represents a transversal competence not only strictly related to the labour market, but also as an essential ability from a life wide and lifelong learning perspective.
Entrepreneurship was traditionally defined as a process, engendered by the entrepreneur, based on defining and launching a new business with the aim of creating new products to launch in the labour market.
Nowadays, this definition has changed in favour to a wider concept: entrepreneurship is an important transversal competence which applies to all spheres of life, linked to social innovation.
Today entrepreneurship represents an important opportunity to enhance adult education. It is a set skills fundamental for personal development and for social innovation. It embraces different types of entrepreneurship, including intrapreneurship, social entrepreneurship, digital entrepreneurship, and can be applied to all spheres of life including personal development and development of active participation in society
The collaboration among the involved partners of the project will help to find solutions to the need of re-integrating adults in larger society.
The project will find new solutions to reinforce the entrepreneurship competence.
Our target will be adults who live in poor areas with geographical obstacles (mountain, remote and rural areas, small villages far from city centres and cultural offers); unemployed people who do not participate in social life; adults with a migration background who need a support to integrate in their new host society; poor adults with low basic skills due to early drop-out of school; women as they are at risk-of-poverty more than men. Entrepreneurship competence will therefore be linked to empowerment which is crucial for a return to society with greater awareness of one’s abilities.
The project pursues the following objectives:
> Improving the adults’ awareness on lifelong learning paths
> Promoting among adults a better understanding of the entrepreneurship competence;
> Carrying out a sample survey of the best projects and tools about peer learning and peer tutoring methods that already exist;
> Defining and testing innovative tools and practical methods that support adults to improve their entrepreneurial skills;
> Promoting an innovative tool for the certification of the entrepreneurship competence.
