Marketing Text Detailed repoort of the conducted desk research is to identify existing VET programmes for VET trainers with a focus on mentoring training for entrepreneurship in Bulgaria and Greece as well as mentoring training courses and materials in Europe and internationally
The aim of this research is to identify existing VET programmes for VET trainers with a focus on mentoring training for entrepreneurship in Bulgaria and Greece as well as mentoring training courses and materials in Europe and internationally, based on a concrete research framework for desktop research matching the aims of the mENTERing project, while avoiding duplication of work and creating synergies between related initiatives funded by the EU and other national and international players and stakeholders.
This desk research forms the backbone for the activities of the mENTERing project to follow in other WPs (especially WP3- Transferring and updating mentoring training core content) by enriching the partners’ knowledge and awareness of the training programmes for VET trainers in Europe with a focus on mentoring for entrepreneurship and also of the ways in which mENTERing can have a lasting impact on the provision of VET at a national and European level.
Target group Project Partners and project target groups
The expected results from this desktop research were the following:
1. the collection of data in project countries (i.e. BG, EL, UK), in Europe and internationally relating to VET programmes for VET trainers with a focus on mentoring and entrepreneurship training;
2. better understanding of the current situation in Europe in relation to IVET or CVET for VET trainers;
3. best practices in training for VET trainers, cooperation among countries and organizations, and recommendations for action so that VET trainers can act as mentors of entrepreneurs and support them in sustaining and growing their business;
4. awareness raising and information of all interested actors (i.e. VET trainers and providers, entrepreneurs’ associations, chambers, policy makers) of the possibility of implementing mentoring training for entrepreneurship for VET trainers at a national and EU level in a formal way and through the provision of accredited programmes (based on the principles and provisions of ECVET and EQF) which can lead to a professional qualification.
