Entrepvet is a pan-European project to develop new thinking and practical solutions to engage young people in entrepreneurship.
Targeting 16 – 29 year-olds, the partner countries will develop a training package for delivery in different regions on a pilot basis and engage local schools and education providers.
ENTREPVET will promote the following entrepreneurial qualities:
- Possessing the knowledge and professional practice to run a business: through meetings with banks, trade, successful entrepreneurs, and professionals
- Skills and attitudes: Young people may have the determination and enthusiasm to run a business but may not have the appropriate skills-set and leadership qualities
- Enhancing the means to practise entrepreneurship and filling gaps in social and financial capital
- Identification of wider cultural and social networks; connecting youth with knowledge networks
Our target group are young people, 16-29, who are, or at risk of being, not in education employment or training (NEET). Partners will agree upon a draft curriculum to be presented to local VET stakeholders and NEET focus groups for feedback and review.

Each partner will engage with a minimum of 5 local VET stakeholders and successful entrepreneurs, and engage with young NEET focus groups (minimum of 5 youths).
We will use non-formal education methods to train 28 VET trainers/educators, from the UK, NL, Greece, Turkey, Romania, and Italy.
Each partner will create a local community VET entrepreneurial hub to support the 35 young people who will create peer networks and cocreate 7 pilot project solutions to address local challenges (IO3).
The young NEETs will continue to network with each other during the project.
Each partner will support their local hub via the VET stakeholder networks and recruit appropriate support for each locally piloted project.
