- To understand how entrepreneurship education can be implemented in a primary level by analysing and applying Aflatoun program direcly with primary children (f.e. during internship)
- To understand how entrepreneurship and related themes can be taught for youth and adolescents (16-24+), the ideas can be applied in initial teacher training.
- To analyse the report on evidence-based strategies for the social and economic empowerment of children and youth in order to get a better understanding of particular entrepreneurship related themes.
There’s a lot you can find on organization’s website:
The EIPTE project considers, that most applicable for Initial Primary Teacher Education would be the following resources, provided by the organization:
- Aflatoun‘s core programme which focuses on children of primary school age (6-14), available at: https://www.aflatoun.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Aflatoun_English_sample.pdf
- The AflaYouth, which curriculum aims to improve income-generation abilities for vulnerable young women and men (aged 16-24+) across geographies. It is suited to easily be adaptable in all contexts. It enables young people to gain access to training, support, mentoring and on- and offline learning during their transitions into the formal labour market or entrepreneurship.
- The report „Exploring The Social And Economic Empowerment Of Children And Youth. Six Evidence Based Strategies“: https://www.aflatoun.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Exploring-the-social-and-economic-empowerment-of-children-and-youth-OnlineVersion.pdf
Depends on a chosen program.
- Aflatoun’s core programme focuses on children of primary school age, because new attitudes and behaviours are most easily absorbed during this time. It is a fundamental period in personal development, where literacy, numeracy and basic skills become ingrained and part of everyday life. Our curricula can be used within formal primary education, but for those without access to schools we have developed the Non-Formal Education manual.
- The AflaYouth curriculum aims to improve income-generation abilities for vulnerable young women and men (aged 16-24+) in all of Aflatoun’s regions. A programme model for Social and Financial Skills (SFS), Employability and Entrepreneurship skills, suited to easily be adaptable to all contexts. It enables young people to gain access to training, support, mentoring and learning on- and off-line during their transitions into the formal labour market or entrepreneurship.
Social and Financial Skills (SFS) program covers the following transferable skills:
Self-awareness • Judge & identify one’s strengths and weaknesses • Show tolerance • Cope with stress and frustration • Overcoming Obstacles • Feel empathy • Building confidence and motivation • Regulate saving and spending • Plan and budget • Manage financial options • Differentiate between needs and wants.
Employability program covers the following transferable skills:
Communicate constructively • Teamwork and cooperation • Setting goals • Critical thinking • Decision making • Anticipating challenges • Negotiation and persuasion • Flexibility • Seeking and making use of guidance • Gaining, processing and assimilating new knowledge
Entrepreneurship program covers the following transferable skills:
Identifying opportunities • Sense of initiative • Creativity and innovation • Problem-solving • Leadership • Risk-assessment • Planning and managing projects • Ability to prioritise • Building on prior experience and knowledge.Studies have shown the positive impact that a combination of social, financial and livelihoods education, along with access to appropriate financial services can have on young people. Girls and young women take leadership opportunities, young people become active citizens, children stay in education or training, and young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights are strengthened. The key factors are the individual’s confidence, their capabilities to manage their economic circumstances, and their access to the right kind of financial and educational services. This report is about helping young people take control, to self-determine, and to achieve their goals. To enhance children’s social agency and financial health resulting in greater empowerment six evidence-based strategies are examined. These translate into specific recommendations for national policy makers, private sector entities, educators, international agencies and civil society/NGOs. The success of these solutions requires that children and youth are involved in all stages of their design, implementation and evaluation.
English and other languages (varies depending from the country). Through a strong network of 345 partners and 38 governments, the organisation reaches 10.5 million children and young people each year in 108 countries.
