Marketing Text 5 x VET and business organisation partners ecommerce & e-business technology target group user focussed programmes developed. Relevant to partner context that have supported at least 100 learners (20 per partner) within the different contexts of VET, SME and Social Enterprise start-up, and resulted in at least 50 e-business action plans in place.(10 per partner).
As a result of the project, each partner has developed their own business support delivery programme relevant to their own partner context. In total, the five VET business support delivery programmes have supported well over 250 VET students/graduates and realized 15 new ebusiness start-ups.
The project has helped to put context-relevant systems, practices and eresources in place to enable VET students and graduates to become self enterprising in the labour market and more confident in using digital resources.
The business support programmes offer a combination of eresources, teaching practice, guidance materials and use of VETIP website to support business skills knowledge and competencies of both students and staff involved.
In developing the business support programme, managers and staff have developed their skills and digital competency, and have also experienced the 'learning journey' that has led to the embedding of a business support programme within the organisation.
Target group Teachers, trainers and managers of VET and business organisation partners, VET students, socially disadvantaged unemployed young people, SME employees and entrepreneurs who lack e-skills & access to e-business technologies.
