02 SES 10 B, Needs Analysis and Qualification Frameworks
This paper shows the results of the research project named “Design of the career and management of the enterprising talent” (ref. EDU2013-45704-P). Funds were provided by the National R&D Programme 2013-2016 of the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness – http://www.transitions.careers/ (this organization is not responsible for the views expressed). The project is still in progress under the leadership of Magdalena Suárez-Ortega (email@example.com). The aim of the project is to define a training strategy to advice and motivate to be entrepreneur. The main objective is to stimulate and encourage self-employed and entrepreneur professional careers.
Since the mid-1980s, there have been fundamental changes in ways of working, in labor relationships, and in professional careers. Some of these changes are related to the global social changes that have occurred in the last decades. In fact, “literature implicitly supports the idea of short term careers which lead to greater long term success” (Palomares-Montero and Chisvert-Tarazona, 2015, p. 531). In this context, the present work is related with employment counseling field for the development in turn of new professional careers.
Entrepreneurship is conceptualized as a term linked to the creation of a business project, but also close to an attitude of life for developing the vital project. In fact, European Commission (2006) describes entrepreneurialism as the individual’s ability to turn ideas into action and includes creativity, innovation, and calculated risks, as well as the ability to plan and manage projects in order to achieve objectives. This definition suggests that entrepreneurship can be applied to range of different environments, not only to socio-economic settings.
Following this understanding, we define an entrepreneur as a person, who recognizes him/herself and the others, who knows him/her environment, him/her opportunities and limitations, who deludes him/herself to bring up a project and who learn from victories but also from failures because he or she recognize that both are necessary to move up.
In this context, it is recommended to analyze and observe the entrepreneur talent in all educational levels. The choice of being entrepreneur in a professional career favors the naturalization of the concept and taking the initiative to face challenges. This makes necessary to study the entrepreneur and business profile that helps us to improve the personal and professional welfare condition along the career.
Padilla (2013) identified general employment counseling needs and particular needs related with self-employment and entrepreneurial competencies. Therefore it is recommended to answer those needs facilitating guidance and counseling in the transition stage for being entrepreneur by giving information and resources (Morales, 2008; Padilla, 2013). The study also explains that a knowledgeable entrepreneur also enables them to invest in their various fields. The question is to what extent the existing level of skills and knowledge of entrepreneurs and what training requirements needed by novice entrepreneurs to face the market? We try to go further by finding educational proposals for novice entrepreneurs training needs, people who are in the first phases of their entrepreneurial project.
