Project Type Transfer of Innovation
If you are a vocational school teacher or a trainer, don’t go anywhere! This is the platform to find teaching materials and tools on entrepreneurship.
On this platform you will find 7 units on various aspects of entrepreneurship and business start-up. All 7 units are supported by practical learning activities, videos, case studies and self-assessment questions to be used in and outside the class room. All materials are free to download and use.
The Ent-teach course is designed in a modular way, meaning it can be completed from start to finish but also individual stand-alone units or learning activities can be used.
Ent-teach stimulates entrepreneurship teaching at vocational colleges and incubators by providing teachers and trainers with practical materials and tools to educate, inspire and motivate students for entrepreneurship. Students will be made aware of the possibilities to actually pursue a career as an entrepreneur and learn along the way.
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.
