Entrepreneurship Education in Vocational Education & Training (EEVET)

We're living in a world were the acquisition of life long skills is becoming one of the most important aspects of employability. Entrepreneurship is one such skill and it very important to instill in our students the entrepreneurial spirit which will give them the capacity to create their own opportunities. This is the premise behind the 'Entrepreneurship Education in Vocational Education & Training' (EEVET) project which will provide entrepreneurship training to VET students in Malta, Turkey and the UK.

Education for entrepreneurship can be particularly effective in initial vocational training, as students are close to entering their working life and self-employment may be a valuable option. However, a real focus on entrepreneurship is missing in pre-tertiary and VET education since the main objective is, most often than not, to find employment. This is the reason why the project partners decided to play an active role in promoting entrepreneurship education in secondary schools and VET institutions.

The project, which started in March 2017, is composed of 2 phases. Phase 1 will focus on researching the ecosystem surrounding entrepreneurship education in the partner countries and develop a training module that address the needs highlighted in the research. Phase 2 will bring together 15 VET students and 5 VET teachers, from each partner country, together in Turkey to be trained in entrepreneurship and receive first hand advise from successful entrepreneurs.    

The partners in the EEVET Project, apart from Creolabs, are the Gohlisar District Education Directorate from Turkey and the Education Learning Network from the UK. They will be exchanging good practices and experiences to develop a common entrepreneurship module that promotes creativity, innovation and self-employment that can used in both personal and professional development.

The EEVET project is financed by the EU's Erasmus+ Programme.
