Start of the ESP pilot05 May 2014
The first of June some students involved in the Company Programme will take the Entrepreneurial Skills Pass for the first time, certifying the business, economic and financial knowledge they gained as a result of their mini-company experience.
The pilot will be carried out in 15 countries (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland, Russia, and Spain) reaching approximately 1,500 students.
A quality assurance phase will follow the pilot with the objective to analyse the results and implement the necessary changes. The Consortium is also trying to organise a second pilot phase that will take place in Ireland and United Kingdom in September 2014. This will give us the opportunity to involve native speaker students and to really check the contents of the exam.
