Skills and qualifications within ECVET
KA2 - Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training
Leader: Asociación Valencia Inno Hub – Spagna
The main objective of EAST project is to develop a training itinerary for entrepreneurship / small businesses management following ECVET recommendations and thus applicable in different countries, having thus among its objectives the promotion f high quality entrepreneurship and self-employment over Europe.
Other objectives of the project are:
Define a profile of entrepreneur with associated knowledge, skills and competences;
Develop a proposal for the application of ECVET system to non-formal and informal entrepreneurial education, with the definition of a Europass and learning pathway that fits to the learning outcomes system;
Set up recommendations for the application of ECVET in continuous learning in partners’ countries;
Establish and promote methods of e-learning and app-learning, as well as the use of OER thanks to an online platform;
Promote mobility in adult learning and contribute to the European Area of Skills and Qualifications.
The main target groups are unemployed people, women and men, including migrants and people at risk of social exclusion, that are seeking for new opportunities in the changing labour market of the post-crisis era. They lack preparation to reach an entrepreneurial profile, and are lost among a large offer of training without clear awareness of their training needs and possible pathways.
