Gen-Z: Developing competences and opportunities for social media entrepreneurship

Implementation period: 01.09.2019 – 31.08.2021
Assistance program: ERASMUS+
Project number: 2019-1-UK01-KA202-061407

Project description:

Gen-Z project aims to join efforts for empowering this generation to become social media entrepreneurs and at the same time developing their key competences and employability skills. A further by-product of this project will be to enable linkages where Gen-Z beneficiaries will be able to support other businesses with their own capacity to use social media to improve their businesses.
A key aspect to achieve this is to ensure that we also equip VET professionals so that they have the confidence and acquire the necessary know-how to teach social media business to VET learners Gen-Z.

In the course of the project, the project partners will develop four intellectual outputs:

  1. Social media entrepreneurs profiles.
  2. Training curriculum on social media businesses.
  3. In-service training.
  4. Gen-Z hub.

We believe that by making the project’s outputs digital, open and freely available to all, the resulting learning, skills and outcomes to be deployed is massive, not only in partners’ countries but also across Europe and generate longer term benefits for other generation z youngsters, educators and educational providers.
