ENE Entrepreneurial COVES WEBINAR 2: BE Digital to BE Entrepreneurial

The Partnership of Entrepreneurial Centers of Vocational Excellence (Entrepreneurial CoVEs) works on developing Entrepreneurship as a key competence in a life-long learning perspective. The project promotes knowledge sharing, peer learning and collaboration of CoVEs with a view to help them improve their performances. Currently active CoVEs are from Georgia, Moldova, Morocco and Tunisia. More details on the Partnership ara available at: Entrepreneurial centres of vocational excellence | ETF (europa.eu)

As first step the Partnership developed a conceptual framework and a reflection tool. The conceptual framework sets the theoretical frame of the concept of entrepreneurial CoVE around four dimensions: a) Organisational Practices; b) Teaching and Learning Processes; c) Products and Services; d) Ecosystem. Based on the conceptual framework, a reflection tool was developed to support CoVEs to reflect on their journey of becoming more entrepreneurial. The tool guides CoVE teams to critically reflect on their own practices, identify their strong areas, the areas they can improve, and plan their own development strategies. The reflection tool was completed by the participating CoVEs in consultation with CARDET Team. Based on the findings of the reflection exercise, four common areas for improvement emerged:

  1. Collaboration with external key stakeholders
  2. Digitalisation, and Digital Strategy
  3. Social Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  4. Business incubators and Start-Up

As a next step, four webinars are offered with the aim to present and share good practices to the members of the consortium (CoVEs) in each of the four topics above. In this second webinar the focus will be on how TVET centers can become more digital to be more entrepreneurial - and we will learn good practices from European CoVES and projects that work on developing digital strategies and tools. The agenda is structured in a way where all the CoVeS will be participating interactively in the discussion. Another aim of the webinars is to function as a platform for collaboration and synergies among the participants.

An opportunity for new CoVEs to join the partnership is offered in this second webinar. In this respect an open session in available at the end of the webinar when the activities of the project will be presented and questions can be asked on how to join the Partnership.

Please see attached the agenda of this second webinar and the factsheet on ENE Entrepreneurial Centres of Excellence.
