EntEE - Entrepreneurship Education in Europe

Continuing to develop new co-operation and new solutions for entrepreneurship education, a new transnational co-operation project within Erasmus+ “Entrepreurship Education in Europe – EntEE” with partners C4G Consulting and Training Network, Polaris FormazioneAidejovenSocial Innovation Centre and Regional Cluster "North-East" from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Bulgaria and Latvia has been started in April 2018, in 

Riga, Latvia

The 8 core competences that Europe sees as the basis for lifelong learning identifies the set of knowledge, skills and attitudes an individual needs for personal development, active citizenship, social inclusion and employment. From them, initiative and entrepreneurial skills (understood as the business mindset) play an important role for wider employment of young people and adults, but at the same time communication in foreign languages, digital competences, learning to learn and social competences and civic education or mobility education is another important requirement for European work market scenario.

Young people at risk of social or economic disadvantage are often perceived without their potential for personal development and suffer from low self-esteem and self-sufficiency through their learning, living and working conditions. These conditions are common to all partnering countries' realities, creating the need to learn innovative experiences in the field of informal business education and improving the training offered to young people under 30, unemployed or economically and socially disadvantaged.
The EntEE project plans to implement an exchange of good practices between associations and organizations to develop both a manual and a test course. The handbook will be addressed to youth workers, teachers and trainers at various levels, and to those involved in youth education in the formal and informal context.

The project aims to foster entrepreneurial and communication skills, integration and active citizenship of disadvantaged young people by proposing a model that can be replicated and transposed into different sectors and geographical situations.

Although it has decreased the youth unemployment rate is still very high in the EU. There is a necessity to rekindle workers and young people to a dynamic and positive attitude towards the possibilities of enterprising behaviour, networking skills and pro-active attitude.


Educating students to take initiative and investigate the opportunities of their networks themselves, rather than waiting for others to take the initiative, will increase employability. SWIRL addresses this need by the key focus on Student Initiated Company Assignments. In addition SWIRL turns the personal network of young people info a professional one.



The SWIRL project enhances the development of teaching and learning methods and contents, to ensure students gain appropriate competences for future working life and make learning more attractive. SWIRL supports new forms of working through new forms of learning: letting VET students collect, execute and present real-job tasks using the latest pedagogical and digital tools. Concretely, SWIRL aims to: 


  • Empower VET students and boost their confidence and self-esteem by letting them realise the power of their own networks. SWIRL connects the students personal identity to their professional identity.
  • Develop students competences for future working life by increasing their sense of responsibility, networking skills, entrepreneurial mind-set and pro-active attitude.
  • Increase the pool of work based learning opportunities for students.
  • Develop VET teachers’ educational and pedagogical skills by enabling VET school teachers to work with their students on Student Initiated Case Study Collection in cooperation with externals and by offering them the knowledge, tools and network to set up the SWIRL programme.
  • Use students network to develop and increase the VET-Business partnerships.
  • Increase the quality of the execution of Company Assignments by students by truly engaging the student on a personal and professional level.
