Educational Times (February 28, 2020) has reported that much of business and enterprise training and education is based on outdated teaching methods and content. It argues that despite living in an ever-changing world, where radical innovation affects all industries, the way business and enterprise is taught and what is taught is dated: many VET teacher/trainers do not understand the needs of today’s enterprises especially in relation to digital technology. MyVA will develop a mini business MBA Training Package in CZ, DK, EN, ES, RO and SE. It will benefit two target groups VET teacher/trainers and young people (Millennials) interested in setting up their own Virtual Agency. MYVA aims to improve the capacity of VET teacher/trainers to improve their knowledge and understanding of the concept of the solopreneur and their needs. Similarly, aspiring solopreneurs need to learn about how to set up and run a solopreneur enterprise. The MyVA Mini MBA course will address the needs of BOTH target groups.

The MyVA Mini MBA course will be available in all partner languages and accessible online, through the project website. The curriculum and course will comprise a set of 6 – 8 practical bite-sized learning modules covering topics such as:
  • Concept development and value propositions
  • Market and competitor research
  • Name and branding
  • Fees and pricing services
  • Digitalisation and automation
  • Creating an on-line presence
  • Networking and lead generation
  • Finance and cashflow
  • The Complete Package.

The project will involve 35 young people and 14 VET teacher/trainers plus 230 participants attending a series of seven Multiplier Events. The MyVA partners will share the project results and impacts with 10K members of the two target groups and other VET stakeholders through a planned dissemination strategy running throughout the project.

MyVA will help VET centres to adapt to the new COVID19 environment by building on past lessons and creating a set of practical tools and a new MyVA Mini MBA course. It will also help VET centres and teacher/trainers to implement digital learning tools into their VET courses.

Partners will use a Creative Commons inspired license agreement to ensure that online access remains open and unrestricted. The learning portal will remain available ensuring the on-going availability of the learning resources after the project: it will operate as an Open Educational Resource (OER).
