representing Western, Central, Eastern European countries, is developing a digital training and mentoring program that supports also socially excluded people to develop entrepreneurial skills. In this process, they gain practical experience of setting up and running a sustainable enterprise.
Digital training program and learning platform
Acting independently as an entrepreneur out of social and ecological responsibility - this innovative type of entrepreneurship is found in social entrepreneurship. Ideas for this can be found in all people. Six European cooperation partners have set themselves the goal of promoting people with social disadvantages and disabilities in particular and equipping them with entrepreneurial skills. In the Erasmus+ project "LeArNing CEnters for
Social Entrepreneurs in the digital era", they are developing a digital training program and an online platform to give socially excluded people access to suitable learning materials and teachers. This gives them the opportunity to develop new entrepreneurial approaches to social problems where they have to deal with them on a daily basis.
Guidelines and best practices
Social entrepreneurship as a basis is an innovation engine that motivates people to leave familiar patterns of thinking. Six partner organizations from Germany, Italy, Romania, Greece, Ireland and Slovenia, including the Ostfalia
University of Applied Sciences, are first developing an innovation manual that will serve as a guide for the learning modules. Best practices show how existing social enterprises proceed.
Finding ideas, shaping them, implementing them
Subsequently, the training modules and an online platform are developed and tested. The e-learning courses provide learners with practical experience of running a sustainable business in the digital age. The high-quality and innovative learning offers support in finding and shaping ideas, preparing entrepreneurial activity and legal frameworks as well as training personal skills.
In the process, each project partner also develops country-specific modules that meet local legal and social conditions. The course modules are then piloted with 20 young entrepreneurs in each of the six countries. From these, six champions are selected in each partner country. All participants receive a training certificate.
