Start working on IO3

In the #East! we have started work related to the preparation of a description of standards for permanent qualifications in the field of entrepreneurship in the ECVET system. Our goal is a better understanding of the learning outcomes achieved by entrepreneurship learners, their greater transparency, and, as a result, better professional mobility both within the national and European labour market. We intend to group the learning outcomes into units, which are parts of the qualifications that may be subject to separate verification and validation.

We encourage you to observe the effects of our current and future work at https://east.erasmus.site/results/
