Thematic Area: ; Employment and Employability; Entrepreneurial learning

What does it mean to have an entrepreneurial spirit? With this in mind, Tunisian vocational education students, teachers and entrepreneurs, as well as representatives of the Government and the EU will gather during the forum 'Envie d'entreprendre - Forum 3.0 on developing the entrepreneurial spirit'.

The event is an initiative of the Tunisian Ministry of Vocational Training and Employment in cooperation with the European Training Foundation, and it is part of wider vocational education reforms in the country. During the event, a Charter for developing the entrepreneurial spirit will be signed by the Tunisian Secretary of State for Training and Entrepreneurship, Saida Ounissi.

Students will present their entrepreneurial projects in a dedicated pitching session. As the ETF's Director, Cesare Onestini, said: 'The twenty-first century economy requires a workforce with both top notch skills and an entrepreneurial mindset. Tunisia’s readiness to build entrepreneurship as a key competence into its vocational training will give younger generations the confidence to take initiatives, assess risks, accept failure and innovate for their country’.

The event is webstreamed live from 9:00 to 12:30 on the ETF's Facebook page here and the YouTube Channel here.  You can follow the conversation on social media using the hashtag #enviedentreprendre. It is part of the EU Vocational Skills Week.
