Project description:

The project’s aim is to develop relevant and high-quality skills and to support disadvantaged young adults (especially low-skilled NEETs in age 20-24) in acquiring entrepreneurial competences to build entrepreneurial mind-set with special focus on developing skills needed for the future entrepreneurs that will be inevitable for tomorrow’s jobs but are not considered crucial for the jobs today.

This aim will be achieved through:

  • deepen research of detailed characteristics of training needs of young adults and skills needed for the future in area of entrepreneurship (complex problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, people management and coordination with others)
  • creation of a simulation game that allow to work innovatively on those 5 skills, in order to foster people’s participation in the labour market and make them play an active role in society and achieve personal fulfilment
  • creation of didactic handbook for using the game
  • wide dissemination and exploitation

  • adult educators/facilitators including career advisers working in the non-formal education settings
