ENTREPRENEURSHIP/FINANCIAL EDUCATION

Description

Entrepreneurship in Education is about inspiring entrepreneurial potential. People need the
mindset, skills, and knowledge to generate creative ideas, and the entrepreneurial initiative
to turn those ideas into action. This is the definition of the European Commission given to
explain the theoretical framework and the necessary link between the school systems and
the European labor market. (Source: http://ec.europa.eu/education/policy/strategicframework/entrepreneurship_it).
Other sources are also important points of reference, such as
“Entrepreneurship Education: Enabling Teachers as a Critical Success Factor”
“Teaching Toolkit for Entrepreneurship Education”.
Even though we are also always researching and developing our materials.
JUMP is an organization that has been developing since 2016 a KA2 Erasmus Plus project
titled: “SO-VET. Social entrepreneurship as an alternative for young unemployed” which
gave as result a long term training course for potential social entrepreneurs on social
business. The course is still online for free and it can be attended in several languages.
After this important experience, JUMP developed an Erasmus project titled “Cultural Studies
in Business” in the field of university exploring how cultural studies can cross and improve
the actual business studies. The project results are very actual and useful, especially the
proposed innovative Master Degree curriculum titled “Cultural Studies in Business”.

Furthermore, JUMP is the leader of another Erasmus project to create a business culture
among youths and is about to start a new project on Circular Economy.
The team of trainers and project developers gained experience in the field of
“Entrepreneurship education” also called “financial education” researching the very actual
trends of studies but also being concrete involved in the business, administration, and
project management. The team is an expert in entrepreneurship and is continuously
developing methods and making practical activities for different beneficiaries to help and
support the existence of a “culture of entrepreneurship”.
Teachers starting from middle school can develop a progressive program of business
education reaching with students at secondary grade a level of understanding and practice
which can be the key for the future professional development of the new generation of
workers in general and in specific of the new workforce of the business sectors. Developing
a business is not something far from what can be done at school, starting from children and
going on until the end of secondary school. Teachers, parents, and students have to develop
entrepreneurial skills and work together in synergy acting as “potential entrepreneurs”:
networking, creating a long-term vision, innovating, and training minds to use “divergent
thinking”.
This training is pure innovation and is challenging because it can be for different kinds of
learners: teachers, “company staff members”, coaches and educators in general. Why this
training also for schools? According to our point of views, company staff members can also
be teachers, school directors but also students and university students but we don’t believe
that schools are like private companies. This doesn’t mean that schools can empower the
skills and competencies of the team members like in the private sector.
As a small company in a local context, schools are at the center of a potential “business
development plan” and this training will foster the growth of those competencies useful to
improve a situation of poverty and lower development to a better one, also based on links
with the labor market and with a local business. Potentially, schools can become
cooperatives, social companies, and small and medium businesses at the local level thanks
to a component which is that schools are more powerful than what we imagine. What’s that?
Creativity! JUMP training is conducted by experts in the different fields and can be also
tailored according to partners’ needs and specific KA1 project’s aims.
