Aptitude is an entrepreneurial key element and non-formal educationactivities develop it. Any Women Entrepreneur needs healing their inner child to contribute to a betteremotional-professional balance.

The first output will be composed by a methodological guide that defines and describes the WECANcoaching methodology – both as a stand-alone resource and with a view to underpinning thedevelopment of the Curriculum and Training Materials, and by a Toolkit for Women Empowermentwhich aims to offer a comprehensive list of energizers and icebreakers for WECoaches to train adultwomen (would-be) entrepreneurs through games.

The methodological guide will be based upon 4 pillars:

  1. The use of non-formal and unconventional practices and approaches to engage with adult womenout of employment
  2. The notion of mentoring and coaching as a non-formal and creative learning approach which canenhance women participation in the economic life of the society in which they live
  3. The transversal competences of the European Reference Framework for Lifelong Learning (ERF)
  4. The EntreComp Framework as the main reference framework for the development of entrepreneurialknowledge, skills and attitudes applicable in all spheres of life.

This IO willThis IO will develop basic skills for women who want to become entrepreneurs, which are needed to starting apath of empowerment that will be followed in the next output. It will help to encourage and improvethe capability to act as peer coaches in two levels:
