The EntreComp Competency Framework: The Competence Dimensions

Objectives

The project will Mobilise engagement across lifelong learning to understand the relevance of EntreComp. It will connect practitioners and organisations interested in or actively using the EntreComp framework. Furthermore, it will empower learning organisations and practitioners to use EntreComp as a tool to drive entrepreneurial learning design, assessment and recognition.

How-to guides and MOOCs on the potential of EntreComp for emerging areas of potential are supporting organizations, educators or learners in a tailored way.

The project involves partners from across lifelong learning sectors, and this will drive active engagement with networks from formal education, youth and non-formal sector, employers/business and start-up support organisations.

DARE will include the perspective of Education for Democratic Citizenship/Human Rights Education. We are glad to be part of the project consortium, as we perceive big intersections between the EntreComp framework and EDC/HRE. For instance civic engagement, creativity and proactivity are relevant key competences for democracy learning. In particular DARE will in this collaboration take care about the implementation of four guides, organize a multiplier event and host a partner meeting for this very inspiring cross-sectoral consortium.
