Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership School Education
The international project leader education
Overall aims and expected results
The aim of the project is to develop an international project manager education and a sustainable international network in which the pupils can practice their learning for pupils at the age of 13 – 15 years.
The idea is to create interest for international entrepreneurship for the young pupils. By motivating the pupils to work in an international arena, we will open their eyes for new dimensions of possibilities for developing creative projects based on the meeting and facing intercultural differences.
We know that creativity is depend on dialogue and inspiration. That is nothing new in the school system. What we want in the project is to raise the level compared to how the pupils usually are challenged by embedding the dialogue, mutual inspiration and project management in an international dimension. An important aspect of the project is that we want the pupils to develop the content of the education themselves. The project manager education will be created by the pupils through their work with different types of cases, which will be brought into the project. Through the pupils work with these cases they identify their own learning needs.
The results of the project are:
A tailormade concept for an international manager education directed school pupils in the age of 13-15 years
A developed curriculum with training materials etc. specifically developed for meeting the educational challenges of the students during a project manager education.
A sustainable international network to embed future courses
