P4 Skilled and socially inclusive region
4.2. More aligned vocational education and training (VET) programmes in the Central Baltic region
01.04.2020 - 31.12.2022
In the Central Baltic islands, the tourism season is short. To maximize their profit possibilities local business owners in the field of gastronomy and tourism need further training, but because they own microbusinesses or SME:s they have no possibilities to undertake full time studies.
The project EPIG aims at supporting them to boost their skills in a flexible way. By developing a curriculum in collaboration with vocational schools in the Åland islands and Saaremaa and by taking into consideration the islands peculiarities. The 10 ECTS curriculum will be developed tested and evaluated on/by students. Based on the first evaluation the curriculum will be improved and tested again.
As a result, the developed curriculum will be implemented in the partners’ vocational schools.
