21stC International Enterprise
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015,
Date de fin: 31 août 2017
The realisation of the European Project depends upon the success of the younger generation. Future career opportunities will demand of them a mix of entrepreneurial skills to spot an opportunity and create new businesses out of the dynamic technology that surrounds them; and the transversal skills to adapt and flex to the challenges of the future employment market.
The 21CIE project aims to develop the entrepreneurial and transversal skills of the students, through an enterprise project whereby multi-national enterprise teams will set up small transnational enterprises to design, make and/or buy products and services. The students will have to be innovative to maximise the opportunity of information technology to communicate and share ideas; so that during the mobilities, they can focus on action planning, implementation and evaluation.
At least 80 students from three countries will participate in the enterprise teams. The teams will be responsible for:
• Coming up with the ideas for their project and deciding what to do
• Raising and managing finance
• Learning how to communicate and collaborate in an international business team
• Action planning including steps, responsibilities of individuals and key milestones
• Implementing and monitoring progress against the key milestones they have set
• Evaluating progress and making changes
• Monitoring and evaluating each other’s contribution to the team.
Staff will provide:
• Team building at the start
• Details of the skills the students are expected to develop and training/coaching
• Tools for monitoring skills development including self-assessment questionnaire
• Preparation for the European Skills Test.
The profile of the participating students will be varied. Excelsior Academy is located in West Newcastle; the catchment area is characterised historically by de-industrialisation and economic deprivation. The catchment population is truly diverse, with a significant white working class population, a distinct but well established population with roots in the Indian Sub-Continent and a newer population made up of a mix of Eastern Europeans and a range of other countries in Asia, Africa and South America.
RSG Enkhuizen serves a small town and the surrounding rural population in the west of the Netherlands. The catchment population is characterised by a mixture of urban and rural students.
Lycee Jeanne d’Arc is located in central Nancy in the North-East France. Traditionally an industrial area, this area too has endured de-industrialisation and there is a need to revitalise the economy following de-industrialisation.
The three schools are all different in size, character and catchment area. But the desire to help their young people develop the entrepreneurial and transversal skills, to prepare them to make a contribution to their own economy and community, unites the three schools and will provide the drive for this innovative project, 21CIE.
The impact of the 21CIE project will be felt in full by the young people participating in the enterprise teams that will be formed. They will be taught the vocabulary and the features of the transversal and entrepreneurial skills they are expected to develop; and the students will monitor their own and each other’s progress and their contribution to teams. Staff will also review progress at the end of each mobility. The students will receive support from businesses in Nancy, Enkhuizen and Newcastle; through this they will learn about the diverse culture of business in Europe and beyond.
The impact will be felt in the wider school communities through information sharing and participation. Impact will be longitudinal, informing teaching practice in all three schools as they develop the teaching of these skills beyond the boundaries of the project. All tools and materials developed will be made available on an open Internet platform for others to share.
In summary, this project is developing young people to enable them to make a greater contribution to the success of their own lives and the European project.
