Purpose
  • Social inclusion
  • Employment
  • Support Personnel

The project developed a training curriculum and an e-course specifically designed to tackle the educational and training needs of migrants by equipping adult education professionals, trainers and professionals working with migrants with the tools needed for engaging migrants in entrepreneurial initiatives as well as increasing their participation in such activities. The curriculum aimed to increase the capacity of professionals in designing outreach activities to support entrepreneurial activities created by migrants and therefore increase the participation of migrants in the socio-economic life and involvement of migrants in educational programs. The modules available are:

  1. Introduction to entrepreneurship – Entrepreneurial attitudes and skills
  2. Legal and regulatory framework
  3. Strategic Planning and Project Management
  4. Access to Markets
  5. Understanding the Local Business Culture
  6. Funding and Fundraising

Besides the e-course modules for migrant entrepreneurs, the platform includes a part for the trainers/teachers of the entrepreneurs. Here, besides this toolkit, trainers/teachers will find a report with a collection of good practices in the field of migrant entrepreneurship in different European countries. In addition, this part includes the needs assessment report, which was produced in the beginning of the MESI project.

Learning assessment

The MESI online modules are designed to be conducted at a self-paced mode. These modules were also designed, with some additions, to be able to facilitate online discussions within groups of migrant entrepreneurs, tutors and online mentors. As long as a timeframe for completing the course is set along, the utilization of digital tools that could facilitate discussions is possible. The overall idea was to allow participants to complete both individual and group assignments in their own time within a set timeframe. 

The modules’ structure includes both online and face to face interactions in a way to facilitate mutual learning, the exchange of experiences and practices, co-operation, resource sharing and referral to complementary support offers and the development of new synergies.

The overall aim was to increase both the tacit and explicit knowledge of the migrants, having in mind, that there will be candidates to acquire an additional lifelong certification.

For those learners, there is an option to sit in online exams per module. Upon the successful completion of the exams, a certification is automatically created for each candidate that acknowledges their effort and acquired knowledge in the specific module.
Recognition or certification of learning

After completing a module, users have the possibility of taking a test. When the user passes a test (they have to answer at least 75 % of the questions correct), they can claim a digital badge. To store the badge, they have to create their individual badge wallet via www.badgecraft.eu/ (online and/or as a mobile app) if they do not already have one. To register they need to create an account with an email address and a password of their choice.

After registration, the user can claim the badge and it will be saved as a digital diploma/certification, explaining what they have learned to earn the badge. They can get the badge by scanning the QR-code on the screen or enter the code that is shown (claim code – either in the app or on the website). Each code can only be used by one person.  Users will get one badge after each test, and when they have completed all six tests, they will get the overall MESI badge, certifying that they have gone through the platform and achieved the expected learning outcomes.
