The Care to entrepreneurship project

The project C2E will:
• Construct a new training curriculum and create a range of courses (online and face to face) for young carers and social workers which will allow them to develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and competences to become successful young entrepreneurs.

• Test and implement training material in the UK, Greece, Italy, Romania and Belgium and use the comparative learning for informing national and EU-wide practices and policies.
Entrepreneurial competencies, such as business and strategic planning with a social dimension, will be the main pillar of the capacity building course curriculum to be developed for the young potential entrepreneurs of C2E.

C2E will build on C2W’s ( evidence base which called for additional research in the lives and futures of young carers. Because of this, each partner organisation we are working with have displayed interest and skill in developing practices which promote entrepreneurship as a means of tackling labour market disadvantages. In Italy, for example; policies that promote such initiatives have emerged to respond to unmet needs in the field of work integration. In Belgium, the Belgian Communities and Regions, took a set of initiatives, demonstrating their interest for entrepreneurship seen as both as a new source of jobs and as a response to new needs. Partners will capitalize and build on each other’s knowledge and experience from best practices in their national context, for the future transfer of know-how at the EU level. The project partnership will create an EU pool of expertise and networking opportunities for youth, professionals and policymakers.
