The objective is to raise awareness about social entrepreneurship and its benefits around teachers, students and society. HEI’s academics’ have skills gaps in this area. It is necessary to development teachers’ competences and update study programmes, to make them more relevant to current Europe’s economic, social model and international labor market situation. It is evident that there is an urgent need to promote social entrepreneurship among educators and to produce highly qualified graduates capable of addressing profound social challenges faced by our communities and Europe in general. Therefore, is it urgent to empower teachers so that they could deliver high quality teaching whereas the development of social entrepreneurship knowledge and competences are emphasized. A key component of the project is the development of “Train the training programme” which will be implemented and tested during international trainings as well as local ones. This will bring an impact at European level, as the methodology and subjects developed could be used for upgrading any higher education institution’s curricular.
