Course Audience

The course is designed for teachers, lecturers and tutors teaching adult learners, including; graduates, and undergraduates.

For teachers and tutors the course will look at the importance of developing students’ innovation and enterprise skills, thereby assisting them in their new careers.

For Graduates and Undergraduates, the course will help them gain a better understanding of innovation, how to develop their innovation skills and how highly employers value innovative individuals. The goal of the course is to empower young unemployed or underemployed graduates to become entrepreneurs and high value employees.

The materials are designed for various uses. The course can be delivered as a complete curriculum or parts of it might be integrated to supplement other courses. All materials are provided as open source and each section of this course of­fers a variety of additional online materials such as videos or websites about the topic.

As some learners might want to learn the content (or just parts of it) individually, all mod­ules and additional learning resources are pro­vided online (see phone & tablet version).

Teachers and tutors can also use the course on their own for professional development. In­formation about how we suggest the materials can be used are provided at the beginning of each tutors work­book for each module.

The course can be used in a classroom envi­ronment as well as a self-contained distance learning course.

Classroom Course Components

The syllabus of the Employment Alliance classroom course is di­vided into seven different units called modules, each of them focusing on different aspects of innovation:

Module 1: Understanding the Labour Market

Module 2: Understanding Innovation

Module 3: Innovation Mindset

Module 4: Innovation at work- Self Employment

Module 5: Innovation at work- Fast Track Employment

Module 6: Social Innovation

Module 7: Innovation for life

Each Module has three different training resources:

  1. A Tutors Guide – this outlines the aims, learning outcomes and usage of each module.
  2. A Powerpoint/PDF Presentation – again this is to be used in conjunction with the Tutor’s Guide, this is a suggested course and includes the materials and activities. If it is your first time delivering the course, this is a good starting point.
  3. Case studies (not available for all modules) – Can be used as real life examples and exercises.

You can download the course by individual module or scroll to the bottom to download all 7 modules as a zip file.

Although the Employment Alliance classroom course is designed as a complete curriculum, each module can be used as a stand-alone session. Therefore each module starts with a basic introduction about the topic which can be skipped if you use more than one module or the whole course.

You do not need to use the materials in any particular order. If you want to concentrate on a specific topic you can jump in at your point of interest – although using the whole course is suggested.

This Employment Alliance classroom course is accompanied by an extra course designed for phones and tablets. This module can be accessed via http://www.employmentalliance.eu/innovation-invitation-course/phone-and-tablet-course/.
