The genesis of the e-kids project
Over the years, BGE Flandre Création has progressively built a range of tools designed to encourage the development of an entrepreneurial spirit at schools and colleges.
This all stemmed from the initiative of a secondary school teacher from Dunkirk in 2001-2002 who offered Year 10 pupils the chance to come up with a business as part of their technology module.
Following this initial experience, BGE Flandre Création decided to develop educational tools that support teachers as they undertake their own entrepreneurial initiatives in the classroom.
Having earned recognition form the French Ministry of Education, this range now comprises 4 tools:
- I discover
- I awaken
- I undertake
- I learn about business
In the Dunkirk area alone, every year more than 2000 pupils from schools and colleges have their entrepreneurial spirit brought to life in this way.
