Entrepreneurial learning has never been more important. The growing youth population, rising unemployment in many countries, along with changes in the labour market and economy due to technological developments, are just some of the reasons why future generations will need entrepreneurial skills and mindsets to cope with a changing world.
UNESCO-UNEVOC believes that entrepreneurial learning offers a realistic and effective means to develop the transferable skills needed to succeed in the 21st century, with leaders and practitioners of TVET institutions having a crucial role to play. Following the 2020 publication, Entrepreneurial learning for TVET institutions: a practical guide (available in English/French/Spanish), UNESCO-UNEVOC launched an interactive online guide to help TVET institutions introduce and mainstream entrepreneurial learning.
The guide allows TVET institutions to work at their own pace to understand what really drives entrepreneurial learning, offers ideas for innovative approaches, case studies and tools for reflection and group discussions. By applying the step-by-step approach of the Entrepreneurial Learning Institution Canvas (ELIC), TVET institutions can develop a suitable concept for entrepreneurial learning and plan its implementation in their own context.
TVET institutions from all five regions of the UNEVOC Network contributed their expertise to the development of the guide through case studies, practical examples and peer review. They have proactively begun implementing ELIC at their institutions and are now looking towards the next step of promoting its use at the national and regional level.
