The project BADGE aimed to transfer and adapt an innovative support programme - Diversity in Business Workshops - developed in the UK, that enabled female entrepreneurs to gain valuable soft skills and competences to assist them starting up their own business. The objective was the development of entrepreneurial skills that will improve womens' confidence, their language and communication skills.
Workshops for aspiring female entrepreneurs were held across all 8 partner countries, namely Poland, the UK, Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania and Lithuania. The workshops involved guidance from business advisors combined with innovative Learners’ Kits. In addition, an online community was created on social media to enable participants to network with one another. VET trainers also have access to innovative European approaches and the opportunity to share knowledge with peers across Europe.
