As an immediate impact of engaging with the materials and resources which will be created through this project, youth educators will be equipped with the resources and skills to effectively teach entrepreneurship, while utilising pop culture as a tool. This will lead to a huge improvement in the quantity and quality of entrepreneurship training which is on offer to disadvantaged young people.
Another impact of this project will be to improve the professional development of these youth workers, they will acquire new competences, gain knowledge of emerging models of entrepreneurship education and develop new skills in non-formal education to help them better work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The young people benefiting from the entrepreneurial education will receive high quality early stage entrepreneurship education. They will develop a more entrepreneurial mind site alongside skills such as spotting opportunities, valuing ideas, planning and management. This will consolidate their cultural awareness and identity through exploration of pop culture, improve intercultural communication, improving their digital skills as appropriate for learning. In the short term this will improve their self-esteem and skills for employability.
