As a result of our project, the 60 graduates who participate in the Innovation for Enterprise and Education course will grow confident in their understanding and application of innovation as relevant to their chosen career and are more likely to become self-employed entrepreneurs or gain employment commensurate to their education because their skills and knowledge are more suited for the current employment market.
At organizational level, the project provides VET providers and HEIs with real motivation to integrate the learning course into their own portfolio of services, as it is a high quality, cost effective solution to a real demand they are facing. In this process of appropriation, even if others modify and enrich our materials, we will have completed our goal of mainstreaming innovation education for arts and humanities’ graduates.
At a more structural level, participants of the Alliances will increase their understanding of causes and manifestations of the skills mismatch, gain exposure to more intelligent, collaborative approaches to overcome it, and directly apply solutions best suited to their region. They will better fulfil their organizational mission to benefit young graduates (be it education, employment or economic development) and will do so in a cost effective way (by pooling resources). Finally, their access to collaborative networks will boost their flexibility and ability to better tailor their education and services to the evolving opportunities of the labour market as it continues to change over time.
