HoReCa4VET IN A NUTSHELL
“A project that brings vocational training closer to the reality of the HORECA sector, an increasingly competitive and specialised sector”.
TELL ME MORE...
Throughout its 2 and a half year duration, HoReCa4VET aims to develop a validation and certification model that will be the necessary material for the design of future courses and training programmes, and that will, in turn, constitute a catalogue of competences for those people who want to develop, acquire and validate qualifications in the HORECA sector.
Thus, the project is mainly addressed to people studying or interested in training in the HORECA sector. It is also addressed to VET institutions; employees of companies; employees of institutions dealing with the development, validation and confirmation of professional qualifications and competences; sectoral and local governmental organisations; human resources specialists, and professional and personal advisors.
The qualifications developed as a result will complement the competences acquired in the framework of formal and non-formal education, as it is a response to the identified labour market needs. This will provide companies with qualified staff and enable individuals to improve their access to the labour market.
In addition, the results obtained will constitute a study for workers who do not have validated qualifications. It can also be a necessary starting point for career development and promotion.
The main objective of the HoReCa4VET project is to increase access to formal, informal and non-formal lifelong learning in the HoReCa industry by developing and implementing validation and certification models according to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
The project is in line with the objectives and assumptions of VET, and all activities related to minimising the gap between vocational training and the labour market are treated as a priority.
In doing so, the expected outputs will contribute to the improvement of the quality of vocational education and training as well as to the increased use of modernised content, tools and resources supporting VET.
