Entrepreneurship is a concept integrated in the curriculum of VET programmes in most of European countries. In the case of the Basque Country, entrepreneurship is one of the common subjects to any vocational programme, disregarding the profession. However, is usually focused from the perspective of business creation and management and it is difficult to promote from one subject entrepreneurial behaviour beyond the concept of setting up a company.

That was the origin of CiTE (Confidence in Teaching Entrepreneurship), an Erasmus+ project addressed to identify how entrepreneurship is integrated in the VET curriculum and which materials are used for it in a number of countries (United Kingdom, Spain, Finland, The Netherlands, France, Portugal, Luxembourg and Estonia), filtering the good things and developing materials for those aspects not covered or not enough.

Having that first step, identification and definition of the state of the art, almost done, the partners of the project, led by Colleges Partnership (UK) and with HETEL among the partnership, met in Tampere (FI) to discuss about the ideal profile to teach entrepreneurship in order to develop a set of materials (a toolkit) addressed to this profile.

During this meeting, we counted with the presence of 2 teachers in the field, one from Nazaret Zentroa (Donostia-San Sebastian) and another one from Egibide (Vitoria-Gasteiz), who are part of the advisory group for the quality assessment of the project. In the next months, we will work in the definition of contents to include in the toolkit, having our next meeting at the end of September in Durango (Basque Country).

Last week HETEL International attended the 4th meeting of the Mobiliteach project (funded by the Erasmus+ Programme) in Maribor (Slovenia) to prepare the next summer school, to be held in La Rochelle (France).

As the summer school celebrated last year in Bologna (Italy), this year we are inviting VET teachers from France, Italy, Slovenia, Germany and the Basque Country to get together and learn and exchange on their experience in mobility projects: how they prepare students from an intercultural and professional point of view, how they support students while abroad, how they follow up their progress in cooperation with companies and mobility providers or how they deal with mobility management, dissemination and sustainability.

The summer school in La Rochelle will take place between the 8th to the 12th of July and it is foreseen the participation of 2 VET teachers from HETEL´s VET schools. The programme will be soon available in the Mobiliteach Website:

Once again, the European partners from the UK, Germany, Italy and the Basque Country met to discuss at Dekra in Berlin. This time around, there was some significant progress in AUTO 4.0 erasmus + project, with some tangible outputs from the 2 days of discussions.

The partners opened by discussing the 19 job profiles which had been generated by and develop one job profile, which was a combination of six ‘operational’ profiles and one ‘data management’ profile: the new ‘Automotive Digital Mechatronic X.0’ profile.

Next, the partners discussed which new IR4 competencies this job profile should contain, and developed a list of generic and specific competencies. This was an important step, as it was the logical approach following the 19 profiles. To finish, the partners developed a 4-step approach for teaching the students.

Next steps for the Erasmus team is to fine-tune the ‘Automotive Digital Mechatronic X.0’ job profile, and then to finalise a teaching template to be used by each partner for developing the teaching material.

Overall, this was an action-packed international meeting, with great progress. Lastly, all partners offer a special thanks to Malte and to Dekra for hosting this meeting.
