Entrepreneurial learning

Entrepreneurial learning

In the bid for improved competitiveness and sustainable employment, ETF partner countries stand to gain from EU policy and practice, and in particular the European Commission’s policy guidance on entrepreneurial learning, the human capital provisions of the Small Business Act and the wider drivers for change articulated within the Entrepreneurship Action Plan. Work to date in the pre-accession and neighbourhood regions on entrepreneurial learning and enterprise skills involving a set of policy indicators allows partner countries, the Commission and ETF through its wider Torino Process policy monitoring drive to determine challenges and constraints. The most pertinent challenges include a lack of engagement by education authorities in promoting entrepreneurial learning, and particularly entrepreneurship as a key competence, and weak intelligence on enterprise skills. Sharing of know-how and good practice provides an opportunity for both policy makers and the education and training community to better understand how policy and practice can be improved. In the period 2014-2017, a ‘shared learning’ objective lies behind a more concerted effort by ETF to improve its policy indicator framework for its partner regions, including a more strategic drive to identify and quality-assure good practice in three core areas considered critical for employment and growth: a) training for young entrepreneurs, b) training and mentoring for women entrepreneurs and c) improved skills for growth enterprises.
