UP- skills Transparency for qualifications and future skills for the hotel and tourism industry

Project goals

Europe faces the challenge to fight rising levels of unemployment. Too many young people leave school too early and adults are often only equipped with low skills, which increases the risk for (future) unemployment even further. The Europe 2020 strategy foresees to foster a high- employment economy whilst ensuring sustainable growth with a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy. To address this issue and at the same time to counteract for fighting a prognosed shortage of skilled staff appropriate actions need to be taken.

Expected project results

  1. Analysis of key skills for hotels and for sustainable operation in hotels, analysis and definition of non- formal and informal gained skills and competences.
  2. Development of training material for the trainers and for the target group and preparation of training.
  3. Based upon the developed training material for the qualification in tourism embracing basic skills as well as future skills for the sustainable operation within hotel departments the trainer course will be conducted.
  4. A self assessment tool for making non- formal and informal gained competences and skills visible and acknowledged will be developed.
  5. Compilation of information for the target group provided on online knowledge platform.
