Aims & Background


The EntreComp Certificate project aims to enhance Europe’s entrepreneurial potential, by supporting individuals to acquire and develop basic skills and key competencies detailed in the EntreComp Framework.

The project’s main objective will be to produce an easy-to-navigate online platform which uses the EntreComp Framework as an accessible curriculum for school and college students to work through experientially and autonomously, leading to a recognised Certificate endorsed by Lancaster University.


The EU is focusing on supporting Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), as these are the foundation upon which Europe can continue to grow and prosper.

The main driving factor behind this project is the development of an internationally recognised qualification based on the EntreComp Framework, thus establishing a bridge between the worlds of education and work.

Additionally, the project targets the problem of early school leaving and disadvantage, by implementing a whole-school approach with collaborative and holistic approaches to teaching and learning.
