On 24-25th November 2016 CSC Danilo Dolci team has recently participated in the kick-off meeting of the project TOUR4ALL -Development of curricula on Accessible Tourism for VET Tourism Courses, that takes place on 24th-25th November 2016 in Espinho (Portugal). The project is funded by Erasmus+ Programme, KA2 Strategic Partnerships | VET.

The project aims to tackle the skill gap in Accessible Tourism VET by offering an upskilling training package, skill validation tool, and an online learning resource platform for both learners and trainers. In order to achieve this objective, it involves a large partnership of 9 organizations from six EU countries, among which CSC Danilo Dolci. The other partners are: CEPROF (coordinator, from Portugal), INNOVA+ (Portugal), IHK-PG (Germany), EfVET (Belgium), STEP (Spain), M.E.T.A Foundation (Italy), LZNS (Lithuania), and Ovar Forma (Portugal).

The partnership demonstrates a strategic mix of competences in EU projects, VET training, quality assurance, and expertise in working with people with disability.

During the meeting in Espinho, all partners have the chance to go through major points of the project, both  technical and administrative. The meeting also has the pleasure to host representative from the Portuguese National Agency who explains to the partnership important administrative and financial aspects.

TOUR4ALL – in its 2-year implementation (until September 2018) – will implement the following activities:

  • Secondary and field research with interviews and focus group to identify the training needs.
  • Data collection of good examples and exchange among all partners.
  • Development of training materials in various forms for validation purpose.
  • Small-scale pilot test of the validation materials in partner countries.

The next transnational meeting will be held in Frankfurt (Oder, Germany) next spring (May-June 2017), during which the first results and intellectual outputs will be discussed in details.
