“ESCP Europe Wirtschaftshochschule Berlin e.V. is a state-recognized academic institution according to German law. It is part of ESCP Europe: a transnational school of higher education with campuses in Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, and Spain. Established in 1819, ESCP Europe is the world’s oldest business school and has educated generations of leaders and entrepreneurs. It is triple-crown accredited (EQUIS, AMBA, AACSB), and welcomes 4,000 students and 5,000 executives from 90 different nations every year across its five urban campuses in Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, and Torino. ESCP Europe’s true European Identity enables the provision of a unique style of cross-cultural business education and a Global Perspective on international management issues. Through a combination of innovative pedagogy, cross-campus programmes with integrated curricula, and a research-active faculty, ESCP Europe is an essential contributor to the development of a European, cross-national management culture.

The chamber of commerce of the region Paris Ile-de-France is the supporting agency of ESCP Europe. It is now almost 200 years that CCIR (former CCIP) is committed to education in management. Today, it spends more than 50 % of its budget for this aim. CCIR represents 800.000 companies which generate a quarter of the French GDP. Alongside the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Paris Ile-de-France region, which guarantees the financial resources of the school through an annual subsidy, the Berlin Government (Senate) has provided its support to the School for over 20 years. ESCP Europe also enjoys the backing of the Turin Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Crafts Industry, the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and a host of players belonging to the European business community.

For ESCP Europe in general and ESCP Europe Berlin in particular an international research focus is inextricably linked with excellent teaching and high-level management training. The combination of theory and practice is a central element of ESCP Europe’s various teaching programmes. Consequently, research and development is the backbone of ESCP Europe Berlin as the school of management for Europe. The activities of ESCP Europe faculty members reach across three domains: teaching, research and academic programme leadership. Besides, ESCP Europe increasingly supports transversal research conducted with non-management disciplines, facilitated by its academic alliances and partner universities.”

We want everyone to have an opportunity to realise their ambitions and potential in learning, work and throughout life.

We believe a better skilled workforce, in better paid jobs, is good for business, good for the economy, and good for society.

We want learning and work to count.

Learning and work count because…

  • We need more people finding work, staying in work and building their careers
  • We need to reduce gaps in learning and employment for disadvantaged communities
  • We need learning opportunities throughout life for stronger families, healthier people, more inclusive communities
  • We need a more balanced and more productive economy

But there are significant challenges…

    • Resources are tight – we need to make every pound count
    • Productivity is too low – employers, individuals and government do not invest enough in training
    • Worklessness is still too high – there are over 3 million people on benefits
    • Skills and employment gaps are too large – we need to close them so that communities and people can benefit
    • Learning investment is too focused on younger people at the expense of adults across their careers and in retirement

ROC West-Brabant (ROCWB) is a leading college for secondary VET and adult education in the south of the Netherlands. It aims to be an innovative regional training centre for high quality education for all people irrespective of their age, background or social position. The education and training it offers aims to qualify people for the demands of the national and international labour market, thus enhancing their opportunities for a better position in society. In addition ROCWB wants to contribute to people’s personal development and to prepare people to function better in a multicultural, diverse and complex society.

Kellebeek College is one of the eight colleges of R.O.C. West-Brabant and it has extensive experience in the field of adult education in the region of West-Brabant in the Netherlands. Most of the adult learners take basic courses in either/both literacy and numeracy and empowerment and are consequently much more able to function in society both in a professional and personal way. Another part of the adult education department offers language courses to immigrants, varying from A1 to C1 levels of Dutch. A third division focuses on young adults who have dropped out of regular education for various reasons but who want to get their secondary school diploma to go on to higher vocational or university education.

For all three target groups an additional programme like Managing Money to increase their financial capabilities to better understand and manage their financial situation would be extremely helpful. Kellebeek College, adult education department, takes part in various local, regional and national networks of adult education in the Netherlands and is consequently able to get feedback and disseminate the products and processes of the Managing Money project on a large scale.
