Maria Petrova Uncategorized

We are happy to announce the launch of our new project ‘Entrepreneurship for Youth Labor Mobility’, funded by the INTERREG 2014 -2020 Romania – Bulgaria. It started on June 20th 2017 and will continue until December 20th 2018.

The project addresses youth employability and labor mobility in the cross-border area Silistra – Ruse – Calarasi. The Lead project partner is Calarasi Chamber of Industry and Agriculture and the rest are: Secondary Vocational School of Economics, Administration and Services “Atanas Burov” in Silistra, Economic College in Calarasi as well as Association Partenerii 2000.

The project develops and applies a Joint Educational Scheme on Entrepreneurship Education without Borders (JES on EEwB). Using the cooperation approach in education, the project empowers teachers from two secondary schools in Economics in Silistra and Calarasi to jointly design 3 programs within the JES: Enterprise without Borders, Green Entrepreneurship, Linguistic training with CB exchanges. Then, during the school year, the project provides the pilot JES among 800 students from these two schools, supported by the local and business communities. To enhance other young people’s employability, the proposal invests in a Learning management system for tertiary/life-long/distant learners and builds up a joint network, so that cross-border school communities include the JES on EEwB in school curricula. Thus 3500 people, mainly students, will access 10 joint employment initiatives, contributing to the integration of cross-border area in terms of youth employment and labour mobility.
