Practice Makes Entrepreneurs

Training Course

5-12 February 2019 | Osterholz-Scharmbeck (Bremen), Germany

Training Course for Youth Workers and Leaders on entrepreneurial education.

Taking into consideration the current situation in the majority of European countries, the international training course ‘Practice Makes Entrepreneurs’ is seeking to equip youth workers and leaders who work directly with young unemployed people with essential business and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills, in order to make them capable to indicate ‘alternative paths’ correlated with the labor market, thus contributing to the limitation of the unemployment among youth. Specifically, by saying ‘alternative paths’, it’s being implied the promotion of self-employment and a general cultivation of an entrepreneurial culture. The above target will be accomplished through a combination of practical knowledge provision on entrepreneurship, and a parallel cultivation of a positive way of thinking within the side-paths of self-awareness and self-motivation.

Specifically, participants will experience various practical exercises -mostly based on non-formal education methods- which will qualify them with entrepreneurial knowledge that can be utilized to equip young people with essential skills, in order to be ready to take entrepreneurial decisions concerning complex socioeconomic conditions. Consequently, the subsequent application of those practical methods-exercises within different local contexts, also aims at the dissemination of alternative entrepreneurial methods, thus contributing to the eradication of various obstacles, such as discrimination and inequality in opportunities; problems which are frequently being encountered by young people, especially in the deprived and rural areas of the E.U.
