EU to launch SENSE OF INITIATIVE AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP COMPETENCE (EntreComp)

0

The EntreComp is made up of three dimensions – corresponding to a finer level of granularity in describing what it is that makes entrepreneurship a transversal competence for all European citizens. These are:

  • Competence areas: cluster constituent elements identified through the research process;
  • Competence constituents: represent the distinctive elements that, together, make up the building blocks.
  • Constituents descriptors: break down each competence constituent into its core aspects The conceptual framework includes a fourth dimension: hints. Hints are catchphrases that transpose the competence labels into exhortations for the learner. Their purpose is to translate the framework’s technical jargon into plain language.

EntreComp has 3 areas, 15 competences, 449 learning outcomes on 8 proficiency levels.

Developed  by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre on behalf of DG EMPLOYMENT / informed by member states’ educators, academics, business groups and other specialists, it aims to unify educators at all levels, citizens and NGOs who support development of entrepreneurial mindsets / capabilities.
