MAKING IDEAS HAPPEN PROGRAMME
Despite recent progress in decline with unemployment rates in the EU, women are still a long way off achieving full economic independence. In comparison to men, women still tend to be employed less, are employed in lower-paid sectors, take more career breaks, work fewer hours because of looking after children or incapacitated adults, face fewer or slower promotions, rarely reach the highest management positions and are paid less for the same job.
To contribute to the above-mentioned problem solving Making Ideas Happen programme aims at improving digital and entrepreneurial skills of disadvantaged women and educators from adult non-formal education institutions who actively work with women and help them to find an educational pathway to better employment opportunities. This programme differs from predominant courses as the project strategy is focused on the imple-mentation of entrepreneurial learning by linking three relevant competence areas together: digital skills, entrepreneurial thinking and project management competences. Moreover, the programme offers content, which enhances not only skills required for current labour market but also builds women self-confidence, provides them an opportunity to discuss problems with others, exchange viewpoints and enjoy themselves in dealing with new knowledge.
