Competence Training for Development of Immigrants‘ Digital Entrepreneurship

We accomplished an international project bringing together immigrants' training and digital entrepreneurship.

AFTER THE LAST PROJECT MEETING:

During 2018–2020 Klaipeda University together with partners from Latvia, Estonia and Sweden, was implementing the project "Adult educators' competence training for development of immigrants and asylum seekers' digital entrepreneurship", funded by Nordplus Adult programme.
The goal of our project is to develop and validate a competence development program for adult educators working with target groups such as immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers. The focus of the program is the development of entrepreneurship and digital entrepreneurship skills. The idea of the project was developed by a coordinator (Klaipeda University) on the basis of the analysis of relevant materials published on EPALE platform.
We succeeded to find several organisations that had the necessary experience for our project idea. The participating Nordplus countries are highly interested in the effective ways of the integration of immigrants and asylum seekers into labour market. As the development of ICT prompts new ways for business development (one of the ways is digital entrepreneurship), the educational programmes for target groups of adults should appear in order to fill in the gap in knowledge and skills. However, at present, there are no specific programmes for immigrants and asylum seekers in the field of digital entrepreneurship in partner countries. The programme will be specifically sought to train adult educators to work with immigrants and asylum seekers and develop their competence in the field of digital entrepreneurship. Trained adult educators will start implementing innovative programmes for target groups of adults (including immigrants and asylum seekers) thus reflecting the needs of labour markets, target groups.
We believe in the added value of our project. First, we believe that project results will raise the awareness of Baltic countries' adult education organisations and stakeholders in the field of immigrants and asylum seekers integration. We strongly hope that Lithuania together with neighbourhood countries will improve the quality of adult education programmes, develop innovative programmes (as in digital entrepreneurship), will contribute to promoting of collaboration between adult education and business sector, and adjust adult education to the needs of socio-economic context, etc. Second, we believe, that the project will contribute to the improvement of the learning process of adults. The project will promote new teaching-learning models, new didactical approached to competence development, attracting more adult learners from different target groups. The competence approach and new methods of competence development will promote the tacit knowledge of students and graduates on how to start their own business etc. Thus, the project would enhance the rates of employability among adults. Third, we implement the vision of adult education institutions as services providing institution in a close cooperation with local business community. Therefore, we develop competences of administrative and education staff in work with community by involving them into mutually beneficial projects etc. Fourth, we seek to make an impact on various groups of adult education stakeholders (adult educators, adult learners, researchers, vocational education, labour market representatives, policy-makers, etc) and people related to education, increasing their entrepreneurship capability to act under new opportunities. Fifth, we promote the intercultural dialogue and understanding among partner countries, stimulate collaboration and synergetic effect, complex approach to solving of similar problems and special emphasis on quality but not on comparison.
The results of the project are presented at the Nordplus project database and also on EPALE platform.
