Developing an Entrepreneurial Skills While At School. ERASMUS+

We had a project meeting from November 4 till November 8 2019 in Riga. A program was worked out and all activities took place according to the plan. At the end of the stay, the guests filled in the questionnaire in which they expressed satisfaction with the stay and the program. The students from partner countries got an insight of what entrepreneurial skills are like. They had numerous excursions in Riga and in the neighborhood: Jelgava Candies Factory, Dorite Honey Production Place, Mārupe Madara Cosmetics Firm. They were organised for our partners to have an idea about entrepreneurship in Latvia.

Some workshops were organised as well and they were conducted by people who have firms or work in firms. The businesswomen told the students about their business, advised them how to launch a business, spoke about what they should first pay attention to. The areas they covered were different: Tourist Agency, Souvenir Shops, Arranging Festivities- decorations with balloons. It was done on purpose so that everyone could find some practical information about the area they are interested in. The project's logo competition took place in which the partners presented their variants and then they chose the best one. The students chose the logo presented by the Spanish school. There was also a workshop conducted by professor J.Popova with the students involved in the project. They worked in mixed groups/firms and did some tasks.

While answering the questionnaire about their impressions on the stay in Riga and the activities all the students gave positive answers stating that the activities were hand in hand with the project theme.

For the foreign students to get acquainted with the country we organised the excursions to Old Riga, Mencendorf House and the Riga City Council, Jūrmala and Sigulda which are iconic tourist places. We also invited a Latvian folk group to dance and to teach foreign students dance Latvian dances. Our teacher of Latvian ran a workshop with the students during which the students made souvenirs with Latvian symbols on them which they took back home.

Thus, the project partners learned some information about Latvian, culture, history and education and learned how to start a business, what entrepreneurial skills they must acquire to start a successful business.
