Building Europe through Entrepreneurship and Employment
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project is the latest in a series of successful projects of the ESA partnership. It builds on previous work about inclusion, volunteering and solidarity and now moves into the world of work emphasising entrepreneurship and the opportunities that are available to our students in a pan-European context. This project will provide a number of benefits to students, teachers, schools and their wider communities including business partners. It will promote creativity and enable students to focus on their own strengths to make good choices on future career paths, to develop necessary skills, to create global networks and to broaden their horizons. As there are ten schools from nine countries across Europe, there will several hundred participants each year, including students, staff, stakeholders and businesspartners. We will particularly encourage the participation of target groups such as those facing significant disadvantages. Project activities will include field and desk research, the creation and manufacture of services or products, student participation in international competition and the completion of the evaluation process, both to inform the current project and as a basis for future initiatives. Methodologies employed in the above activities will emphasise teamwork and collaboration across borders. Skills development and confidence builiding will also be a key focus. The expected results and impacts will include international interaction between participants and an enhancing of student creativity and other business skills. A learning platform and website will be progressively developed through the life of the project, which will be available as a resource for participants and others. We anticipate a more international ethos and entrepreneurial spirit as a result of the project. We also hope that students will see the merits and opportunities of starting or joining the business sector, becoming more aware of the skills necessary for work and be more motivated to achieve them and choosing business related subjects as a direct consequence. We believe that partnerships formed will lead to long term sustainable benefits. Overalll schools and students will foster closer international ties and foster a more international outlook with broadening horizons.
