Projekt TASBOR

Dear Sir / Madam,

The present questionnaire has been prepared by the Slovenian Business and Research
Association in a co-operation with Center for business training in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The
questionnaire is the part of the EU co-financed project TASBOR, which aim is to improve the
quality of regional vocational entrepreneurship training programmes in order to assist
employment seekers in Slovenia and Veneto to obtain better employment opportunities
through additional training. In the firs phase of the project we would like find out what is the
state of play of entrepreneurship training programmes to make an analysis of the of the
Vocational Entrepreneurship and Training Programmes (VETP) needs and new business
development opportunities. The results of the analysis will serve as the basis for drawing a
detailed picture of the Vocational Entrepreneurship and Training Programmes and later of
creating the training courses for training organisations that provide entrepreneurship training
programmes.

The questionnaire consists of two parts:


a) General information about vocational training institution
b) Ten questions about the entrepreneurship training programmes in your
institution.
Answering the questions you will provide us with valuable information on the status of
the entrepreneurship vocational training programmes in Slovenia (Veneto) and the
needs of vocational training institutions that provide such programmes.

The analysis of the questionnaire and other deliverables of the project will be available
on the project web site www.sbra.be/tasbor.

We are kindly asking you to send filled in questionnaire by April 5 2006 to the
following address:
