The baSE project enables knowledge share among higher education, vocational education and training with social economy actors who contribute to the social economy ecosystemic growth. It addresses skills mismatches and provides new skills with regard to occupational profiles in the SE sector.
In a nutshell, baSE implements sectorial and cross-sectorial activities within broader socio-economic environments such as:
- Research and Training Needs Analysis of the Social Economy Ecosystem
- Design of a SocioEconomic Competence Framework to enrich the catalogue of existing Competence Frameworks like DigComp, GreenComp, EntreComp etc.
- Design of base curricula & Occupational Profiles targeting the Social Economy Sector (adapted to National and Regional/local level)
- Implementation of training pilots (delivery of training content and teaching training methodologies)
Within this context, the project contributes to the implementation of the Pact for Skills and the European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan, while it creates a multistakeholder community of 25 partners in 10 different countries.
Objectives of the project

1. Provide the identification of skills needs for building relevant training and curricula and implementing new vocational education content and pedagogical methodologies, across the sector.
2. Identify, develop and promote upskilling schemes, and training tools, to establish a more diverse Workforce.
3. Establish a European Alliance to share processes, knowledge and practices and secure political support for mobilizing policymakers and key stakeholders at the EU and national level through the involvement of a broad range of stakeholders: social economy enterprises, educational institutions, training providers, research institutions, social partners and social economy experts.
4. Socio-economic regeneration of the territories by (1) boosting local economies and (2) bringing social innovation to tackle the societal challenges of local communities. (social economy enterprises have a multiplier effect of bringing economic growth with social impact).
