EMINENT is an EU Erasmus+ Project bringing together partners and experts from the United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany and Ireland. This project aims to facilitate the increase of female migrant entrepreneurs by transforming their access to and the quality of the training they receive from entrepreneurship VET institutions.
The overall goal of EMINENT is to facilitate the number of female migrant entrepreneurs by transforming their access to and the quality of the training they receive from entrepreneurship VET institutions. To do this we will work with a range of enterprise education providers from local authorities to community organizations, to improve the quality of learning opportunities that are available to them. Specifically, we will produce:
- A Compendium of Good Practice presenting good practice on engaging with women from minority groups and culturally appropriate and effective pedagogical techniques
- A Curriculum and Classroom Course that provides the knowledge and skills needed for female entrepreneurs to gain the confidence, knowledge and skills needed to establish and successfully run their own business
- An interactive knowledge platform acting as a multi-dimensional learning hub and exchange platform for female migrant entrepreneurs, VET and stakeholders
- Innovative learning placements for 20 female migrants with start-up potential in successful (preferably female-led) businesses
Through focused use of these tools, this project aims to enable service providers to improve collaborative planning and coordination of entrepreneurship VET institution activities, increase the ability of educators to deliver effective, personalised and culturally sensitive education and develop an innovative learning framework that provides female migrants with opportunities for knowledge and skills development in the areas most needed for a successful introduction into entrepreneurship.
