INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO TEACHING THROUGH A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHING COMPANY IN SOME EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, BUILDING THE KEY COMPETENCE "INITIATIVE AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP"
ABSTRACT We will consider in this article the learning company as a form of practical learning. Emphasis is placed through the capabilities of the training company, building the key competence "initiative and entrepreneurship", on the basis of mastering and implementing active strategies and methods of training. Attention is also paid to the use of teamwork, groupwork, problem solving and project work. In recent years, the practices, methods of teaching and learning we know have changed dramatically. As a result of these changes, education has begun its transformation. The need for a change in training is precisely the answer to changing global and social changes, technological development dynamics, and innovation in education. It can be said that the areas leading in this change are two – conceptual and technological. The network of learning companies is a simulated learning environment in which students are placed in real situations by business environments. The purpose of training through a training company is to maximize the reproducing of "real conditions". In these conditions, students have the opportunity to experience an environment extremely close to the real one in a company and to help build the key competence "initiative and entrepreneurship". Dynamic change in technology and innovation, the development of the Internet are an important factor in the preparation for the professional realization of students. The free access of students and teachers to the use of social computer applications and smartphones shifts the focus from an object-based model to a competency-based model. The effective construction of the key competence "initiative and entrepreneurship" in the high school stage of school education is made possible through the training company.
