The course is designed for youth workers and those working with young people in a formal or informal setting particularly in the Arts. It seeks to promote Entrepreneurship education and Social Entrepreneurship among young people by integrating entrepreneurship training into youth services in the field of creative, performing and digital arts.
Rather than viewing entrepreneurship just as a means to self-employment, the course is designed to build entrepreneurship as a transversal skill, one that is of benefit to all young people because of the numerous ways it can be employed to further their goals.
The course looks at the importance of developing students’ innovation and enterprise skills, finding new ways to integrate high quality entrepreneurship education into existing youth services and structures by training youth workers.
The materials are designed for various uses. The course can be delivered as a complete curriculum or parts of it might be integrated to supplement other courses. All materials are provided as open source and each section of this course offers a variety of additional online materials such as case studies and activities about the topic.
As some learners might want to learn the content (or just parts of it) individually, all modules and additional learning resources are provided online.
Youth workers and Educators can also use the course on their own for professional development. Information about how we suggest the materials can be used are provided at the beginning of each tutors workbook for each module.
The course can be used in a classroom environment as well as a self-contained distance learning course.
