Greek E-Mates Blog

E-Mates is a partnership co-founded by Erasmus+ and the European Union. The Projects‘s main goal is to develop pupils‘ entrepreneurial skills as a counteract to youth unemployment, and to provide support to their less stressful transition to adulthood. 

About Us

The 21st-century reality has clearly demonstrated that current pupils will work in jobs that don’t exist right now; most importantly, they are also the ones who will create those jobs. That‘s why this Strategic Partnership has been built up around the firm belief that entrepreneurship, as the project title suggests, does matter as a key competence for lifelong learning.

The Partnership‘s main goal is to develop pupils‘ entrepreneurial skills as a counteract to youth unemployment, and to provide support to their less stressful transition to adulthood. Secondary schools from Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Austria, Portugal and Romania are planning to involve our target groups of teens (aged 14-18) in a number of challenging, mixed-reality activities whose purpose will be to empower them with the competences needed for their various career paths.

Our Focus

Entrepreneurial Skills

The Partnership‘s main goal is to develop pupils‘ entrepreneurial skills as a counteract to youth unemployment, and to provide support to their less stressful transition to adulthood.

Tourism

We are targeting the tourism sector as the main job provider in our regions, most of which have the highest rates of youth unemployment in the EU. The whole project will be pupil-centered, with a mixture of cross-curricular and cross-sectoral approaches.

Peer Learning

Our target groups of teens will carry out most of the activities in mixed transnational teams, and will be exposed to peer learning and teaching, self-assessment, as well as to providing critical feedback. They will have to create learning diaries (via Padlet) where they will register the new skills and competences acquired as a result of their project-based learning.

Critical Thinking

Pupils‘ critical thinking will be boosted through their active participation, and personal contribution, to solving concrete problems, and executing personal assignments. Social media forums will serve as productive spaces for exchanging ideas and generating common working strategies.
