The European Union has translated the concept of “entrepreneurship”

into a model, with which it is possible to speak about entrepreneurship

in a universal way. The EntreComp model supports a methodology

andcorresponding tool that allows the competency elements in the

area ofknowledge, attitude and skills to be measured. The results

arethe starting point for the further development of the underlying

competencies and the associated indicators. Entrepreneurship is

thus made transparent and understandable. 

By making use of the EntreComp model through its application in

training models devised for the One Plan 4 One Planet resource nodes,

it becomes possible to structurally keep track of a development process,

also known as the “lifelong learning" processes. EntreComp modules of

the 15 competences are delivered via distance learning methodologies

within formal and informal learning environments hosted by the resource

nodes.

EntreComp offers a definition of what it takes to be entrepreneurial and puts forward a progression model built on

statements of “learning outcomes” that can inspire pedagogical intervention within  and outside the world of formal

education. EntreComp can be used to raise awareness about the  importance of entrepreneurial learning, appraise

and assess entrepreneurship as a competence, set  up effective delivery methods and recognize entrepreneurial

learning progression.

Anyone can implement the EntreComp framework in entrepreneurial learning - within business or  learning environments

such as formal education and training, non-formal learning initiatives or  offering training and professional development

in the workplace. EntreComp itself is a comprehensive  framework, based on research and built upon a pan-European

consensus. It is flexible, adaptable and  free to be used by any individual in any context. The framework comes to life

when individuals and  organizations use it to help understand, value, implement, assess and recognize entrepreneurial 

competences of learners from different walks of life.


EntreComp identifies the competences that make someone 

entrepreneurial. These can then be used to support 

entrepreneurial learning in different settings – including 

civil society, business and companies, education, youth 

work, communities and start-ups, as well as among 

individuals. The EntreComp wheel offers an overview
of the different yet interconnected competences, 

designed to help a person think about the  entrepreneurial

skills and attitudes that his or her work  involves. These

can be used as a guide when designing a  new activity

and/or a model to use or adapt for learning  and assessment.

At its very simplest level, EntreComp is made up of three

competence areas ("Ideas & Opportunities",  "Resources"

and "Into Action"), where each area contains five  competences. Together these make up the 15 competences that

individuals can use to discover and act upon  opportunities and ideas.​​

entrepreneurship

By producing a common  definition of what  entrepreneurship is as a competence, the EntreComp Framework  aims to establish

a bridge  between the worlds

of  education and work, taken  as a reference de facto by any initiative that aims to  foster entrepreneurial  training and learning.

EntreComp is the European reference framework for the understanding and development of 

entrepreneurship as a competence. EntreComp describes entrepreneurship as a transversal 

competence that can be applied by individuals to all spheres of life, from nurturing personal 

development and actively participating in society, to entering or re-entering the job market as

an  employee or as a self-employed person, and to starting up ventures (cultural, social or

commercial)  as entrepreneurs. EntreComp is made up of three competence areas:

     1.  Ideas and Opportunities       2. Resources       3.  Into Action
