The INNOVENTER project participated in the Cyprus International Education Fair entitled «Education and Career 2019», which was inaugurated on Friday 15 February 2019 in Nicosia and remained open until Sunday 17 February. Through this specialised fair, students, parents and other interested persons were informed about education opportunities in Cyprus and abroad.
The CCCI is a partner of the INNOVENTER (Innovative Vocational Social Entrepreneurial Training) project, which is co-funded by the Interreg BalkanMed 2014-2020 cross-border European programme. The core idea of the project is the development of a vocationally oriented Social Entrepreneurship training programme for small and medium-sized enterprises so that they innovate themselves, while at the same time engaging people from disadvantaged groups as employees (project website https://innoventer.eu/).
In this context, the INNOVENTER Course on Social Entrepreneurship has been developed. It consists of 15 Modules and is available through an e-learning platform (www.innoventer-cyprus.eu) as well as through a relevant android mobile app, which is available free of charge in Google PlayStore. The INNOVENTER course is mainly directed towards higher education students and young entrepreneurs as well as secondary education students over 16 years of age.
The CCCI, in collaboration with interested VET trainers, will offer free vocational training in the field of Social Entrepreneurship during March and April 2019. Those interested in participating are invited to contact the CCCI (tel. 22889840, firstname.lastname@example.org).
