Tips to help you become better Enterprenuer

 Youthpass represents a certificate and a way for participants taking part in the projects funded by Erasmus+: Youth in Action and European Solidarity Corps Programmes, to describe what they have learned and what they have done in their project and which competencies they have acquired. Thus, Youthpass supports the reflection upon the personal non-formal learning process and outcomes. As a Europe-wide recognition instrument for non-formal learning in the youth field, Youthpass strengthens the social recognition of youth work, supports active European citizenship of young people and youth workers by describing the added value of their project, also aims at supporting the employability of young people and youth workers by raising their awareness of and helping to describe their competences, and by documenting their acquisition of key competences on a certificate.

Being involved in these types of projects and other volunteering activities in general, every involved young person can develop or improve 8 key competencies,(combination of skills, knowledge, and attitudes), which can help highlight the personal competencies while being interviewed for various job positions.

Some of the key competences are: 

  • multilingual competence ( getting acquainted with foreign languages as an element of the other countries) 
  • personal (Improving presentation and public speaking skills, self-esteem progress and improvement) 
  • social and learning to learn competence (being flexible and open-minded in new contacts and groups with different backgrounds) 
  • citizenship competence (learning to be responsible in the various cultural, political, socio-economic, and religious environment) 
  • entrepreneurship competence ( gaining skills and knowledge how to recognize potential innovative ideas)
  • cultural awareness and expression competence ( from diversity to inclusion) 
  • digital competence ( improving existing digital skills or learning new ones, while discovering the latest changes in the IT sector)  
  • mathematical competence and competence in science, technology, and engineering 
  • Literacy competence (more focused approach in topics such as finance, budgeting, outsourcing, etc.).

All of the above-mentioned skills can impact in becoming Successful entrepreneurs, a profile that is already in high demand on the labor market. What can make a good entrepreneur is having good organizational and management skills, proven experience in working with marginalized people, being well aware and informed for a vast number of societal entrepreneurship topics, programs for inclusion, and more. Regarding formal education, this topic should be included in the programs for high scholars, presenting attitude and knowledge which would be a combination of formal and non-formal education.
