Entre Theatre

Entre Theatre

The objective of the Entre Theatre project is to develop an inclusive, engaging and innovative training methodology to provide adults experiencing unemployment with the entrepreneurial skills to reactivate their career and gain future employment.

Entre Theatre aims to find similarities in entrepreneurship and theatre education between the partner countries in order to create a programme that can be applied to an extensive group of unemployed people and job seekers across Europe (including all countries that do not belong to the current partnership), while still taking into account the differences that demonstrate certain specific needs of this target audience (such as cultural differences).

The partnership will use several quantitative and qualitative research methods to complete a Skills Assessment Framework (with a main aim on soft skills), combining both online (surveys) and face-to-face sessions (focus groups and interviews) with the target group as well as intermediaries (entrepreneurship education experts). The framework will map out the practical drama techniques learning outcomes and link them to the learning outcomes needed to develop soft skills and entrepreneurial skills such as proactiveness, confidence, resilience, character impersonation in order to have clear and defined learning paths.
