The ECVET AGENT project recognises the potential of entrepreneurship to offer sustainable employment opportunities for Roma jobseekers across Europe. By developing a new and practical VET curriculum in the area of agriculture, ECVET AGENT will build upon the existing skills and strengths of this target group offering pathways towards the creation of new micro-enterprises.
ECVET AGENT is an exciting new project that will offer a validated and tested approach to Roma economic integration and make a real contribution to the European Vocational Education sector.
All resources and training materials developed as part of this project will be informed by the needs of the Roma community, tested in six European countries and freely available to use through the project website.
The aim of ECVET AGENT is to develop a VET programme fostering agricultural competence together with entrepreneurship training for Roma and long-term unemployed people supporting them to become micro-entrepreneurs.
