Abstract

Bantani Education is a non-profit organisation supporting the development of entrepreneurial learning at EU and global level. Committed to creating a better understanding of what we mean by «being entrepreneurial», we have worked with the European Commission's Joint Research Centre on both design and implementation of EntreComp (European Entrepreneurship Competence Reference Framework, 2016) since its inception, and are now developing a comprehensive user guide «EntreComp into action: be inspired & make it happen» to increase its up-take. Through this, we have engaged education, community, business and end-users to develop an inspirational user guide to EntreComp. 

Rebecca will share insights into the upcoming user guide, highlighting best practices to get started in using EntreComp, tips and tricks of how others have worked with the framework and examples of its’ application across education, community, businesses and start-ups, alongside resources that support the teaching and learning of the EntreComp entrepreneurial competences.
