«EntreCom4ALL goals. Adapting a framework of entrepreneurial skills for different objetive groups»
Edmundo Tovar Caro
The EntreCom4ALL project aims to improve the accessibility of entrepreneurial education to young or female entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial teachers or trainers by developing an online platform that provides access to OERs relevant for entrepreneurship. This platform will increase the visibility of relevant OERs for these target groups. While anyone can use the platform, an essential tool within the platform, the skill-assessment framework (SAF), is designed especially for the target groups. The SAF, adapted from the EntreComp framework, enables a self-assessment of the EntreComp competences, providing an overview of strengths and weaknesses before consulting the platform's OERs. Users will be able to assess themselves according to the different competences of entrepreneurship that have been developed and tailored to the target groups.
