Financial Education for Future Entrepreneurs - FEFE

Financial Education for Future Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurship education in both, Vocational Education Training (VET) and Higher Education (HE) contexts are a core element of the EU2020 objective of delivering growth that is smart, sustainable and inclusive. The EU is focusing on entrepreneurship as a key driver to economic growth and job creation and to achieve this investing in entrepreneurial education and support is regarded as a key priority for immediate intervention.

The consortium of this project (representatives from Austria, Cyprus, Spain and the UK) wants to foster the financial literacy and entrepreneurial mind-sets of learners across VET and HE contexts through the creation of a highly innovative digital ‘serious game’ and related educational materials.

Through the FEFE project, more learners shall be encouraged to start their own enterprises and be able to grow these more effectively. Learners shall also become more employable and better able to contribute to the growth of any enterprise in which they are employed in.
