2015 European Training Foundation (ETF) Call for good practice: Towards excellence in entrepreneurship and enterprise skills

Application Deadline: July 3rd 2015

The  European Training Foundation (ETF) is seeking applications from organisations that established a good practice in one of the following areas:

  • training for youth entrepreneurship,
  • training for women’s entrepreneurship,
  • training for internationalisation of small and medium-size enterprises.

The areas are priority themes in the Small Business Act for Europe.

The call builds on earlier phases of a pilot project that aims to improve access to quality-assured good practice in entrepreneurship and enterprise skills. This call for good practice particularly targets training providers.

The ETF – European Training Foundation is an EU agency that helps transition and developing countries to harness the potential of their human capital through the reform of education, training and labour market systems in the context of the EU’s external relations policy.

The call for good practice and the corresponding assessment tools were elaborated and road-tested over a
3-year period by training providers from EU member states and ETF partner countries, working in teams. Training providers involved in the pilot phase of the ETF good practice initiative may re-apply.

Eligibility Requirement:

Training providers must be from organizations that design and deliver training (or mentoring and coaching) in the three thematic areas.

This could include:

  • Business support organisations with a developed training profile (e.g. Chamber of Commerce, SME agency);
  • Training organisations that develop training for specific target groups (private training providers, public employment service, vocational education schools, training centres, specialist NGOs);
  • SMEs that have in-house training to promote knowledge, competences or skills (this could include more innovative ways to promote human resources e.g. staff rotation, on-the-job mentoring, e-learning).
  • ETF Partner African Countries : Algeria,Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia,
 Benefits
The training providers who participate in the call and who are selected as a good practitioner will benefit in a number of ways, including:
  • through constructive peer review, identify areas of the training programme to be improved;
  • opportunities to have your good practice show cased at international level;
