The research work will be done – which core leadership competences could be developed focused on during the Practice Enterprise training. The catchy and engaging way for examining the nature of leadership competences, with great attention to awareness of socially responsible business. That comes from the fact that a people in VET training systems are young people and they have less opportunities to gain knowledge in this field compared to those coming from Higher education system.
The project objectives are to:
- Review the literature, best practices, development and implementation of similar initiatives and programs and conduct gap analysis and needs assessment to promote entrepreneurship and leadership skills, with use of Practice Enterprise.
- Develop material for trainees, in order to foster the development of leadership competences, to form the knowledge base-ground of being a socially responsible person, to improve level of skills for employability and new business creation.
- Disseminate the created material to relevant multipliers and support its further promotion, implement online activities targeting the wider network in all partners countries.
