Title of this Module
The status of women entrepreneurship and the needs in adult learning training

Description
This Module introduces the learners to the importance of women in the global labor force, the added value of women entrepreneurs, how the organizations can increase the number of women entrepreneurs and the policy options for strengthening the entrepreneurial competences of women.
Entrepreneurial learning should be given an early start to develop entrepreneurship skills in boys and girls according to their own needs and interests. It should be accessible to all and embedded in a culture of lifelong learning. Entrepreneurship should become a key competence in curricula. Special attention should be paid to developing leadership skills in girls from the early phases of education and to broadening their exposure to technology-related issues. Learning has to provide common and equal opportunities, regardless of gender, to engage in any type of employment, to succeed in any sector of the economy and to run a business. Measures should be taken to overcome prejudiced and discriminative attitudes towards women in business or in leadership positions: dedicated policies and education programmes must focus on developing self-efficacy among women entrepreneurs and promote their role in top management and company boards. Adult education and training also needs to be employed to promote the entrepreneurial potential of women and to encourage their own business development.

Module objectives
After the completion of the Module the trainee will be able to describe the basics of female entrepreneurship in the Balkan Region and the possibility of its development. Training for entrepreneurial women should be built on a thorough analysis of their training needs, both before, during and after they move into business. Training needs analysis for women’s entrepreneurship is now a focal point in policy research.
