BYOB – Be Your Own Boss
BYOB – Be Your Own Boss is the new Erasmus+ project in which VITECO is collaborating with other EU partners. BYOB aims at adapting and transferring a methodology of adult education developing entrepreneurial skills in learners, increasing their capacity to create their own jobs.
It also trains and provides adult educators with a practical and flexible coaching methodology to enable learners in disadvantaged and peripheral communities to create their own employment and become entrepreneurs.
This is a project aims at supporting, enabling, coaching, inspiring people to become self-employed and create their own job. The purpose is to encourage people not to wait for someone else to offer them a job and show them how they can take control and create their own job.
According to the rationale, in the current socio-economic environments there is a need for an innovative adult education pathway, which emphasizes entrepreneurship and self-employment as proven and successful ways of overcoming traditional barriers and persistent unemployment. As a successful solution to unemployment already experimented in the UK, the methodology will be transferred to new socio-cultural, linguistic and geographical communities, in order to meet the specific needs and challenges faced there.
VITECO will be activity leader for all aspects of dissemination & exploitation of the project, developing a valorization plan covering all aspects of BYOB, its results and outputs.
