discuss SG4Adults projectErasmus + project SG4Adults developed a serious game to learn entrepreneurial skills: BIZ-E-BEE. In the Netherlands the game has been tested with students at a bachelor's degree Social Work because entrepreneurship is a relevant topic for their future study and work.

Social workers have to deal with many different problems such as parenting issues, domestic violence, lack of money, poor housing, conflicts, psychological problems or a combination thereof. In training they learn how to find lasting solutions together with the client and in collaboration with other professionals. What do socialo work students need entrepreneurship for? It is a sector where it is not uasual to make money or even profit, but primarily to provide quality services in line with the needs of clients. They are usually not commercial organisations, though one efficiency drive after another and targeting on goals has been clearly increased in recent years. The vague woolly character of the past has given way to formulate nowadays SMART goals. However, entrepreneurship often seems far away from the bed.
