CRAYON's Training Course IO2

Implementing the training with the target group

This intellectual output will provide a training course addressed to HEI students and recently graduated unemployed covering the following topics:
- entrepreneur skills
- creativity
- innovation
- motivation
- business creation

The aim of the training course is to provide students with the skills demanded by the labor market and make more attractive to them the option of being a social entrepreneur. One of the novelties of this training course is that it will integrate LEGO Serious Play®, Business Model YOU and Gamification, as well as Motivation 3.0, an innovative way of working intrinsic motivation currently used in the USA.

The training course will be designed for 40 hours and it will include extra online resources to deepen on any topics if required. The course has 5 different modules that might be used in the future, after the project end, together or separately.

The methodology previously designed (Intellectual Output 1) will be integrated into the CRAYON's Training Course.

CRAYON's course modules:
- Motivation, the key to success
- How to develop your entrepreneur skills
- Boost your creativity and use it to innovate
- Generate your business idea
- Business creation: step-by-step
