The PROMISE partners meeting in Madrid was a great collaboration of partners, especially with our deep exploration of the Professional Noticing (PN) model. This model offers a structured approach for educators, allowing them to observe and respond to students' needs more effectively. Our discussions have centred on how to implement this methodology in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Vocational Education and Training (VET) settings, with the ultimate goal of enhancing students' entrepreneurial competencies through Professional Noticing.

The PN model is particularly beneficial for developing entrepreneurial skills, as it encourages a proactive and reflective teaching style. By paying close attention to students' interactions, progress, and feedback, educators can tailor their approaches to support individual learning paths and foster a more engaging and dynamic learning environment. This approach is not only innovative but also aligns perfectly with the evolving demands of modern education, where adaptability and personalised learning are key.

During our meeting, we delved into practical guidelines for applying the PN model. These guidelines are designed to be straightforward yet impactful, providing educators with clear strategies to integrate Professional Noticing into their teaching practices. For HEIs, this means creating opportunities for students to engage in real-world projects, encouraging critical thinking, and promoting a culture of continuous feedback. In VET settings, the focus is on hands-on learning experiences that mirror industry practices, helping students to build the skills and confidence needed to excel in their chosen fields.

We encourage everyone to keep an eye out for the valuable materials we are creating and to stay updated with our latest developments. By sharing our findings and resources, we aim to support the wider educational community in adopting innovative practices that benefit both educators and students.
