IO2 In-service training for youth professionals

Partners will develop a bespoke in-service training programme to ensure that youth professionals are equipped to deliver the on-line entrepreneurship curriculum. Once the learning content for the new curriculum is developed and a prototype learning resource has been produced partners will carry out a training needs analysis with their local advisory committees to identify the precise training needs of youth workers to ensure that they can extract the maximum benefit and impact from the new resources and the on-line learning environments being developed.

The in-service training programme will be available on-line as a handbook in pdf format for printing and as a flipbook for on-line use. It will be available in all partner languages.

The In-service training of youth professionals will be pilot tested in a training event that will take place in Cyprus.

IO4 Next Generation On-line entrepreneur case-studies

Partners will develop a series of case studies of next generation on-line entrepreneurs profiling the widest possible range of individuals and business types. A total of 24 case studies will be produced and partners will endeavour to ensure that these case studies are broadly representative of the experiences of young on-line entrepreneurs and will that the businesses profiled will be viewed as tangible and achievable by the youth target group.
