Entrepreneurship has never been more important than it is today. It is widely acknowledged that new companies and entrepreneurs are important for innovation, job creation and economic development in Europe. However, traditional education and training systems in Europe have not been supportive of entrepreneurship and self-employment. As attitudes take shape at an early age, education systems should contribute more to the development of entrepreneurial skills and mindsets. We want to run this project because: student participation is limited; teaching methods are ineffective; the practical element of entrepreneurship is missing; teachers are not fully competent; entrepreneurship is not linked to specific training subjects or professions; business people are not sufficiently involved.

The PRO-ENT project is intended as a support tool for fostering entrepreneurship within the younger generation. This is to be achieved following specific project planning lasting 2 years and involving both schools and company representatives. The project aims to motivate pupils to develop creative, positive and innovative attitudes towards entrepreneurship. Project activities will demonstrate to them the relevance of education in the workplace and help them to develop both an enterprising spirit and a sense of personal responsibility.

The partnership fostering the project is composed of 10 partners, extending over many European countries. All of them, with the addition of other significant local stakeholders, will be actively involved in project development: the activities’ impact could well prove definitively relevant.


In teaching entrepreneurship it is particularly important to focus on the personality of young people. This type of education should foster creativity, a sense of initiative, risk taking and other generally applicable attributes and skills that are the foundation of entrepreneurship.İn the project Our main aims are:

1)realisation of a EU network of professionals dealing with didactic activities aimed at fostering in the young generation a EU entrepreneurial spirit

2)putting into action a 2-year programme involving students, enterprise representatives & teachers

3)realising a programme geared towards assisting students in setting up their own businesses. The programme will include: appointment of a student tutor, the setting down of project rules with the students, selection of an enterprise sector after a presentation made with firm representatives of the different economic sectors, advertising the relevant vacancies linked to firm set up, and request that students complete an application form and apply for jobs, organise interview times with each candidate with the help of colleagues from among the enterprise representatives, make a list of successful candidates and complete the firm organisation chart, set the first firm meeting and a specific day when all firm meetings will be scheduled during the year, have each firm sector start its activity (the board taking decisions, the vending office retailing products, the secretary structuring daily activity), organise interview in groups with people working within the same profile, taken over by the students, have the students compile a job profile description, render the firm operational, convene periodic meetings so as to identify any problems the students are encountering, plan periodic meetings with business and enterprise representatives in order to solve problems encountered and acquire deeper knowledge of specific aspects of the business sector and after an appropriate time to have participants change job profiles, rise to more elevates positions, etc. the project meeting will signal an occasion to discuss & experience international business & the opening of the firm’s foreign markets


1)students’ awareness of self-employment and entrepreneurship as possible career option

2)Underline relevance of education in workplace

3)Underline importance of personal responsibility, creativity and personal ability in participating

4)need to increase entrepreneurial spirit among the young generation

All the participating institutions will perform the same activities with the help of firm representatives in the case of schools or with the help of educational organisations in the case of enterprise representatives.

Thus each project partner will:

1) nominate a Project Manager to care for local and transnational project implementation

2) participate in transnational project meetings

3) keep abreast with project communications

4) collaborate in project monitoring/evaluation activities

5) contribute to project diffusion project contents and findings

6) launch a local enterprise involving all the students enrolled

7) encourage full student involvement in project activities (planning of actions, meeting participation, evaluation, etc.)

8) contribute to inserting contents onto the project website

9) sustain a positive entrepreneurial spirit throughout the project.

Based upon the competences possessed by each institution, a specific role has been allocated accordingly:

Partners 1, 3 will be responsible for general project coordination

Partners 2, 3, 9 will take care of project monitoring and evaluation activities

Partners 3, 1 will coordinate project diffusion

Partners 4, 1 will highlight student learning

Partners 3, 5 will supervise transnational project meeting realisation

Partners 5, 6, 10 will favour exchange of experiences/materials among participant institutions

Partners 2, 7 will facilitate personal contact among students (also via Skype and social networks)

Partners 3, 8, 9 will organise the final project documentation

Partners 4, 8 will realise interim project reports

Partners 1, 2, 10 will facilitate the exchange of knowledge about the foreign markets of the enterprise created

Partners 1, 3 will realise the project website

Partners 1, 2  will realise a document for informing students’ families on learning acquisition throughout the project

Partners 1, 3, 9 will realise a document aimed at informing enterprises and the business world of project aims and results

Partners 1, 4 will realise a document aimed at informing teachers and the educational world of project aims and results

Partners 5, 6, 10 will coordinate activities among student tutors

Partners all will suggest and stimulate activities to be carry out locally among students and enterprises

Partners all will organise activities involving students and enterprises with a European dimension

Partners all will draft possible activities or other projects to be carried out after project conclusion



Every partner will have a Skype address, so that conferencing will be easy, making communication to exchange information or to talk about problems quick and direct. In the first month of the project a project website will be launched with the main information about the project, the status, and a collection of open material and results. It will be connected to a weblog were the partners can also communicate easily.

The website and the platform will also be used for external communication and information.

Several devices have been marshalled to ensure effective communication among the project partners. The most important are: general project coordination by a proven and experienced organisation, appointment of a specific Project Manager for each organisation so as to oversee project implementation, appointment of a specific student tutor to carry out activities with students, clear roles assigned to each organisation involved, frequent transnational project meetings convened, widespread use of internet tools, such as e-mails, Skype sessions and social networks planned among organisations involved and project participants.




Every project partner is involved in the evaluation process, especially in the evaluation process for the whole project. The partners have to bring in their arguments and share opions and views on career orientation as well as on the project and its benefit.

In addition to that all partners will be integrated in the management of the project. This is useful because they all are involved in financing aspects as well as in the workshops and their structures. Moreover they all are participating in their national reporting and the common final project report.

The learners will be involved in all project experiences planned: from enterprise drafting, to its realisation, organisation and daily running. Learners will also be involved in the mobilities planning and realisation. Furthermore, monitoring and evaluation of all aspects of the project (mobilities, outcomes, activities, learning experiences, etc.) will be based upon the active involvement of students and student tutors.



The project will be integrated into the activities performed by all the organisations involved

In regard to schools, the project will be incorporated into the time frame destined to project activities and/or orienteering activities, careers planning or links with the labour markets.

For enterprise representatives, the activities will instead be linked to enterprise promotion and links to local and European development.




The project, via quarterly questionnaires, will monitor:

1. teachers’ attitudes and opinions towards the projects

2. pupils' enterprise learning : skills, knowledge and achievements

3. feedback from learners, teachers and partners on what is working and not working


All together the project partners at the project’s commencement will set the indicators to evaluate success criteria for enterprise education. These indicators will be monitored during project development and analysed in the final report and during quarterly evaluation moments scheduled during project implementation.
