Project Type Innovationstransfer
Marketing Text The ENT-TEACH project has an innovative practical approach to stimulating entrepreneurship among students in VET institutions by providing their teachers with the tools and materials to educate, inspire and motivate their students for them to be able to pursue a career as an entrepreneur.
The central aim of the project is to equip VET teachers to teach students the emerging skills of entrepreneurship with a focus on the (start-up) micro enterprise.
VET students who finish their studies are usually expected to continue their education elsewhere or start a job. Some former students however start up their own firm. Most teachers are unaware of this next step a student takes after graduation. Relations between teachers and world of work should be improved, especially the relations between VET teachers and former VET students of (start-up) micro firms.
By applying the results of this project in VET institutes, (1) teachers gain insight to competences that are required for the entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow, (2) teachers can involve entrepreneurs (former students) in the classroom and together address the students of today, and (3) teachers can better interest, support and educate VET students to pursue a career as an entrepreneur.
