About the project

In this time of loss of values, great difficulties and financial uncertainty, young people need a help and a guide for their future life.

Everybody dreams a successful career and school education has a fundamental role in giving our students the right knowledge and skills to enter the labor market. This is done through an entrepreneurial approach. Young Europeans will act in an international environment so they will need knowledge and understanding of both national and international conditions for business and entrepreneurship.

Aims

  • To introduce our students to the world of entrepreneurship in an international context.

  • To provide them with the knowledge and skills for entrepreneurial success so that they can turn ideas into actions and create jobs for themselves and for others.

  • To teach the important so called 21st century skills.

  • To teach how to create a website

  • To teach how to set up an e-commerce.

  • To teach how to promote a company

  • Too teach how SEO (Search Engine Optimization) works

  • To exchange best practices in the field of entrepreneurship training, through observation, discussion, etc.

  • To improve the English language and the use of ICT.

  • To learn about the culture of the participant countries.

Number and profile of participants

The project has 6 partner schools situated in Italy, Hungary, Lithuania, Serbia, Spain and Turkey. Each school will have 3-6 pupils directly participating in each of the international meetings plus a large team of students (250) and teachers beyond that will help to prepare and carry out each LTT meeting as well as the subsequent distribution of the learning outcomes. Some of the students come from a disadvantaged social, cultural, or educational environment, some live in areas with a high rate of unemployment, or have a migrant background.

Methodology

In order to support the objectives of the project, the methods chosen aim at transferring knowledge, inspire, and motivate. Our focus will therefore be on lectures, workshops, and company visits. Workshops and Lectures held by teachers experts in the entrepreneurial field necessary to develop a successful business project. Company visits will be relevant to the subject of entrepreneurship. Learning by doing will be predominant as the interaction and communication between pupils and teachers, experts and entrepreneurs from the 6 different European countries. They will work in international teams and will be encouraged to widely use ITC through web searches, use of softwares, applications, etc.

Results and impact

In general, the project not only improves the practical ability of starting companies but mostly to think creatively and ambitiously. It benefits students because it teaches them to think outside the box and it nurtures unconventional skills. Furthermore, it creates opportunity, ensures social justice, instills confidence and stimulates the economy. The result is a digital booklet/pocket edition for entrepreneurship that will help trainers and users in the process of creating a business.

The international digital booklet will include a step by step guide on:
