The Learning Circle project aims to support the emergence of innovative circular economy entrepreneurs. Even though innovative entrepreneurs come from varied backgrounds, they share common traits, motives, and competences. They also play an important role in boosting economies around the world and their importance cannot be overstated. True entrepreneurs are serial innovators who leave a portfolio of successful and not-so-successful ventures behind them at the end of their career. Supporting the growth of innovative circular economy entrepreneurs through vocational education can therefore achieve a positive and lasting impact.
The Learning Circle project is developing four innovative education and digital tools to support innovative entrepreneurs, namely:
An In-service training for VET tutors supporting them to:
1.) build their entrepreneurial spirit and
understanding of the circular economy;
2.) strengthen their pedagogic skills for online teaching; and
3.) enhance their digital competences so that they can create their own digital teaching resources
