Social Entrepreneurship VET is an Acción contra el Hambre and Fundación Telefónica joint program on education for social entrepreneurship directed at Vocational Education and Training professionals. Its goal is to help you out improving the entrepreneurship competencies of students in the subjects of Enterprise, Entrepreneurial Initiative and Education and in Career Guidance (Intermediate and Advanced Vocational Education) as well as in Basic Vocational Training and Education.
We do so by:
- Giving support right in the classroom in order to qualify VET students.
- Through on-site and on-line courses for VET trainers.
The program would be developed in the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years.
In class youngsters acquire all the necessary knowledge for the logical process of starting-up, building, testing and implementing a business, on the other hand, they are trained on basic entrepreneurial competencies (self-confidence, initiative, decision making, flexibility…).
It is about harvesting seeds in future entrepreneurs, with innovative ideas, positive social impact and that they incorporate technology as a tool to boost them.
Social Entrepreneurship VET is powered by Fundación Telefónica through Conecta Empleo/Digital Employment, its program on Digital Training. Conecta Empleo/Digital Employment is a free program that aims the increase of employment possibilities for youngsters in Europe and Latin America, as well as to train them so that they would be better prepared for facing their personal and professional future.
According to the updated data, through Social Entrepreneurship VET program the entrepreneurial competencies of over 400 youngsters and around fifty trainers in 11 centres in Madrid, Extremadura, Castilla-La Mancha and Navarra, are being improved. In addition, it is forecasted to reach another 200 trainers through on-line education.
