Identifying good practice helps policymakers, business and training providers to share knowledge and know-how, prompting further development. To highlight good practice, and inspire partner countries in their work relating to the Small Business Act (SBA) for Europe, the European Training Foundation (ETF) has launched two separate Good Practice calls.

#EUVocationalSkills Week Award

The first call, open to all providers of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in the ETF’s 29 partner countries bordering Europe, seeks good practice examples of entrepreneurial learning as a key competence in the VET curriculum.

This call is inspired by the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework, which identifies a number of entrepreneurial competence areas. The most inspiring submission will be invited to Brussels during European Vocational Skills Week (20-24 November 2017). Entries close on 20 September, 2017.

Helping SMEs go global!

The second call focuses on the training for internationalisation of SMEs. A key priority of the SBA is to get more SMEs working internationally, reaching new export markets.

Training is an important factor in supporting this. The ETF is seeking good practice examples of training from both ETF partner countries and EU Member States that supports business to trade internationally, in particular ETF partner countries with specific trade arrangements with EU. Applications close on 30 September, 2017.
