The strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training (known as ET 2020) adopted a benchmark to be achieved by 2020, namely, that the share of early leavers from education and training should be not more than 10 % in the EU-28. 

According to the Eurostat “Early leavers from education and training”, In 2017, an average of 10.6 % of young people (aged 18-24) in the EU-28 were early leavers from education and training, in other words, they had completed at most a lower secondary education and were not in further education or training during the four weeks preceding the survey. Early leavers from education and training may face heightened difficulties in the labour market. Those not in employment may or may not want to work. In 2017, the 10.6 % of early leavers from education and training were composed as such: a 4.7 % share of the EU-28’s population aged 18-24 were early leavers in employment, while 3.7 % were early leavers not employed but wanting to work, and the remaining early leavers (2.2 % of the population aged 18-24) were not employed and did not want to work. 

Education and career guidance plays an essential part in motivating students affected by SLD and SLI and keeping them engaged in education. It not only provides them with information on the study options and work prospects available, but also helps to identify the careers that may interest them. Guidance staff also support young people suffering from SLD and SLI in developing the skills they need to make good decisions and they enable them to manage their choices better and take responsibility for their own personal growth and development. “Step by Step” (SBS) project is aimed at reducing the above mentioned phenomenon by sharing good practice among EU partners in order to duplicate successfull supportive scheme for school teachers / mentors, business mentors with the puropose of keep SLD and SLI learners motivated by means of Work-Based Learning WBL interconned activities. SBS is aimed at creating a network of international partners actively engaged in fighting early school leaving by stimulating the pro-active attidute of SLD and SLI learners and entrepreneurial spirits. 

Expected Results: 

1) WORKSHOP FOR TRANSFER OF INNOVATION TRAINING FOR TEACHERS / TUTORS AND WORKPLACE TUTOR during which the PP will transfer to the users referents the necessary knowledge to implement programs directed to Training teachers / tutors and workplace tutor in dual learning logic.  

2) CREATION OF CONDITIONS FOR REPLICABILITY OF PRACTICE through the translation of educational contents of two Training courses for Company Tutor and Lecturer in Logic Dual Learning and the agreement for use of e-learning platforms to be used for the realization of part of the learning activities provided in the form of short-term mobility. 

3)TRAINING FOR WORKPLACE TUTOR WBL 

4)TRAINING FOR TEACHERS / TUTOR IN LOGIC DUAL LEARNING. 

The learning of all participants will be evaluated and certified in accordance with the ECVET. 

5) METHODOLOGICAL GUIDE

PARTNERS: 

Coordinator:  SYSTEM & G FINLAND RY (Finland) 

Partner: MV INTERNATIONAL (Italy) 

Partner: NGO NEST BERLIN EV (Germany) 

Partner: Alliance for Global Development (Luxembourg) 

Entrepreneurship to Empower (“ENTEM”) is an Exchange of good practices that proposes an integrated and holistic approach that emphasizes international cooperation for the development of NEETs young people’s life skills and entrepreneurial skills so that they become ready to enter the labor market or create their own opportunities and be agents of change in their communities through international learning teaching training activities. 

ENTEM proposes international cooperation for the development of NEETs young people’s life skills and entrepreneurial skills

The Europe 2020 Strategy points Entrepreneurship among young people as an essential objective, it also includes the “Youth on the Move” flagship initiatives. The 2020 Entrepreneurship Action Plan highlights important actions to promote entrepreneurship, such as education and training, which enable entrepreneurs to thrive, develop role models and reach specific groups that cannot exploit their entrepreneurial potential (Youth Entrepreneurship in Europe: Values, Attitudes, Policies, Publications Office of the European Union, Luxembourg). The EU Youth Strategy recognizes youth employment and entrepreneurship as one of the eight areas of action. 

The partners conducted a needs analysis which seeked to identify the challenges faced by NEETs young people, the constraints and existent opportunities in the partner organizations policies and activities as well as it provided us with important highlights at European level.  

Main findings: 

– High rate of youth unemployment in 2 of the partner countries (32,20% Italy, 20, 40% FI). 

– Poverty and social exclusion -Italy being one the EU country with the highest at-risk-of-poverty rates with 35%, 24,7 in Germany, 24,2 Finland (Eurostat, 2017). 

– High rates of NEETs (aged 20-34) – 29,5% in IT, 11,9% in DE, 14,5 in FI 

– Educational constraints at partner countries level: insufficient education provided by the state education system – teaching entrepreneurship in schools is isolated, entrepreneurial education has gaps in content and wrong methods of learning, which does not provide long-term impact for young people who attend entrepreneurship programs. This impacts the way youngsters relate to entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship in particular 

The project proposes an integrated and holistic approach that emphasizes international cooperation for the development of NEETs young people’s life skills and entrepreneurial skills so that they become ready to enter the labor market or create their own opportunities and be agents of change in their communities through international learning teaching training activities. 

Objectives of the project:  

ENTEM pursues the following specific objectives: 

– Contrasting massive youth unemployment through developing Social Entrepreneurship potential and related soft/transversal skills in disadvantaged young people (NEETs) through Urban Needs’ Analysis, Storytelling, ICT and Intercultural Communication. 

– Researching and comparing existing European good practices of Social Entrepreneurship education of young people through Urban Needs’ Analysis, Storytelling, Marketing, and Intercultural Communication. 

– Producing state-of-the-art Reports outlining the existing landscape of European good practices. 

– Elaboration of a set of Toolkits and of a comprehensive “Bolstering Youth Entrepreneurship” Format representing a useful practical reference for 

NGO and stakeholders’ operators. 

– Developing a network among organizations experienced in the field of entrepreneurial empowerment. 

Main activities: Within 24 months there will be transnational Meetings, production of Reports, development, and testing of entrepreneurial methodologies in 4 different yet interconnected Blended Mobilities of Young People (BMYP).
