We work on a multitude of educational projects, one of which is Empowerment Through Enterprise. This two-year Erasmus+ programme is nearing the end and we recently presented the educational resources developed as part of this project during a launch event. The main aim of the Empowerment Through Enterprise project is to promote the inclusion of young migrant women in entrepreneurship education in the European Union.

Several studies reveal that many women wish to engage in entrepreneurship, however, there remains a gap between those who intend to participate and those who take action to participate.

During the launch event, Sonia presented the Reach and Teach Toolkit, which was created to help education providers engage young women from migrant and minority backgrounds in entrepreneurial efforts by providing best practices for Reaching this demographic to inform them of the benefits of enterprise training and Teaching this demographic separately from or in conjunction with host country nationals. – https://www.eteproject.eu/learning-portal/reach-and-teach-catalogue/

She also told the audience about the Empowerment Through Enterprise curriculum and Classroom materials. These are specifically designed to be used by trainers in classroom scenarios to teach young women (18 – 30 years) from immigrant or ethnic minority backgrounds the entrepreneurial skillset.  – https://www.eteproject.eu/learning-portal/empowerment-through-enterprise-curriculum-and-classroom-course-materials/

The course encompasses learning outcomes, assessment guides and a pack of multimedia learning resources including PDFs and editable PowerPoints in English and French.

Also presented at the event was the Empowerment Through Enterprise online course, which is a learning resource that can be completed in a flexible way. – https://www.eteproject.eu/online-course/

The course has been developed to encourage, facilitate and provide high quality innovative enterprise education to young migrant and minority ethnic women – helping them realise their full potential.

Entrepreneurship skills can provide young women with a route to business creation, self-employment and financial empowerment; and entrepreneurial thinking encourages innovation and resilience in all spheres, personal and professional.
