Competitiveness of European economy requires citizens and particularly young people to be innovative, creative, flexible and courageous to face challenges in a dynamic and volatile economy. The optimum method to approach students and provide them the chance to develop an entrepreneurial spirit is work-based learning and especially apprenticeship, however, apprenticeships are focused on the specific vocational skills, required in the specialization and not on the acquisition of entrepreneurial skills.
Filling this gap, the App.Mod.E. project wants to develop an apprenticeship model for the acquisition of entrepreneurial skills by students in upper secondary and higher vocational education and training.
App.Mod.E. has been funded with support from the European Commission.
