EntreCompEdu is back!

When the EntreCompEdu partners came together to celebrate the successful end of the project with a lively graduation ceremony and policy event for the successful EntreCompEdu Teacher Pioneers in summer 2021, you might have thought that it was the end of the road for this innovative entrepreneurial project. If you missed out, EntreComp Europe is delighted to announce that the project will run again this Spring!

The EntreCompEdu online teacher training course will be delivered by EntreComp Europe, a project co-funded by the COSME programme of the European Union. This builds upon the work carried out by EntreCompEdu which was co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The course supports educators to design and deliver entrepreneurial education – with a 93% approval rating from teachers who completed the pilot phase. EntreComp Europe is delighted to announce the launch of third phase of the free online continuing professional development (CPD) course for educators at all levels who want to develop their entrepreneurial education skills. Registration is now open, with the course starting from 1st March.

Through the course, you will develop your entrepreneurial education skills, such as teaching through real-world contexts, creating an empowering learning environment and encouraging self-awareness. The course is self-paced, with all resources and materials available from day one, we expect the course to take 25 hours to complete. Experts in entrepreneurial education will be on hand through the online forum and through weekly online café sessions to help support and guide you through all five modules over the course of your 11-week learning journey. At the end of the course, educators will have the skills and competences to design and deliver entrepreneurial education in their own classrooms. Successful course-completers will also receive a digital badge and certificate to certify their work.

Over 700 learners from 52 countries engaged in the last two phases of the EntreCompEdu training across 7 languages: Flemish, Finnish, Italian, Macedonian, Spanish, Welsh and English. For this run, our mentors will be able to provide support in English and Spanish.

The course is delivered through the LoopMe platform, where you will find discussion forums to talk to both your mentor and your peers, and to help you explore the how and what of entrepreneurial education for teaching. Participants will follow a personal and highly reflective journey, supported by videos, interactive exercises and practical tasks. Feedback provided from learners into the EntreCompEdu Practice Map will become a useful tool for other teachers to use around the world.

Don’t just take our word for it, here is what some of our EntreCompEdu Teacher Pioneers had to say about the course…
