The Project

The transition from school into professional life is one of the most challenging moments in life. A competitive job market requires young people to not only possess an excellent qualification but also the ability to apply their skills in the workplace, to be adaptive and to act in an entrepreneurial way. Developing a career is a process, not just a destination. Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the developmental process required to engage in thoughtful, thorough career development.

Therefore the aims of the project are:

  • to map out and assess the role of career guidance in supporting entrepreneurship learning in initial vocational education and training (IVET)
  • to design and offer a professional development programme for career advisors in order to upgrade the services provided to VET students for a better career orientation towards entrepreneurship routes
  • to create the CAREER HUBS based on the creation of synergies between the labour market, SMEs, schools VET etc. in order to support the work-based learning opportunities to be offered to students, as well as real-life opportunities.

Target Groups

The project is addressed to the following TARGET GROUPS:

VET school teachers/Career Counselors, Schools leaders, Teacher educators, Support teachers, Psychologist, career counsellors, Students, School staff in charge of IT, Parents and their families, Staff from schools of different levels

Useful information

The EntreComp framework is set to become a reference de facto for any initiative aiming to foster entrepreneurial capacity of European citizens.

It consists of 3 interrelated and interconnected competence areas: ‘Ideas and opportunities’, ‘Resources’ and ‘Into action’. Each of the areas is made up of 5 competences, which, together, constitute the building blocks of entrepreneurship as a competence.

The framework develops the 15 competences along an 8-level progression model and proposes a comprehensive list of 442 learning outcomes. The framework has been used as a basis for the development of curricula and learning activities of the ENTRE@VETSCHOOLS project.
