Valorising and Nurturing Entrepreneurial Education across Europe: IDP European Consultants joined the fourth Transnational Project Meeting of ECI

June 18, 2021

The ECI Partnership met online for the fourth Transnational Project Meeting of ECI (EntreComp Implementation), a Project co-funded by the Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Commission, which brings together eight Partners from six different countries (Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, and Romania). The meeting was held in online mode due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Consortium opened the meeting by reflecting on the project; specifically, the tasks performed and the time schedule. Then, Partners presented the main findings, illustrating the progress achieved in the development of the Intellectual Outputs. Financial management issues were also analyzed. Finally, the Partnership took stock of the situation regarding the next deadlines.

The Partnership is pleased to inform that the training content is finally available online in all languages represented by the Consortium (English, German, Italian, Greek, Romanian, and Polish) and it is free for consultation (http://entre-comp.eu/training.php).

The development of the training modules kick-started during summer 2020; Partners invested energies, times and efforts to comply with time schedule and quali/quantitative standards as discussed and foreseen during proposal. The design of the modules in terms of content, structure, and learning outcomes has been facilitated by a series of monthly brainstorming sessions in which Partners had the opportunity to validate their ideas and have meaningful exchanges of views with their colleagues.

All training materials are EQF- and ESCO-compliant – a cross-referencing in which Partners invested several months of close collaboration (please check the “Model” section for further references). The emerged results allowed Partners to finalise a common methodology that provides for common understanding and shared guidelines upon all IO3-related activities.

The final Output consists in six training modules, each of which focusing on a specific EntreComp competence as highlighted by the framework. The material is organised as follows:

For a more comprehensive understanding of the subject, each training module is subdivided into further didactic units, at the end of which there is a short self-assessment sheet. The training modules come with a short document (the so called “training fiche”) that summarises key concepts and main takeaways.

In the Project, IDP brings its consolidated experience and expertise as a private provider of VET and adult education services. IDP has 25 years of experience in international and cross-border collaboration in the field of promotion of entrepreneurship and employability. IDP will greatly contribute to the technical and operational activities of the Project carrying out analysis and stock-taking activities of the Italian VET ecosystem pertaining to the project; contributing to structuring modules, developing methodologies for effective teaching and learning, materials and content.
