K TOUR Project, meeting in Portugal

3 day of full work for partners involved in K TOUR – A Key for sustainable and accessible tourism – the latest meeting was held in Portugal from 27th February to 3rd of March 2023 at Escola Profissional de Campanhã.

The survey has been almost completed. Each school conducted it in the most suitable way according to the students’ needs: some of the students went to talk directly to the hotel managers, to improve their interaction abilities. In Italy, they started with computer data analysis, since we also wanted to develop their technological skills more.

A second important point has been the creation of a website and of the database. We decided that the website can also be a place where to share information on sustainable and accessible hints, so it will have a “news” section, besides the others.

We planned how to organize the data base and defined the criteria to be included: a company may not have all the criteria we suggested in the questionnaire, but some of them are more important and sufficient to be considered eco-sustainable and/or accessible.

We also decided on the project logo and slogan, so that the project will have a homogeneous layout.

The project – Small-scale partnerships in vocational education and training – was born after the ENNE Blended Course held in Italy in December 2021 and it involves the following partners:

The K-TOUR project will allow networking with local institutions, tourism companies and other institutions European vocational training institutions. This will be a great opportunity to share our good practices and to be in contact with other tourism networks.

This project enables the creation of a knowledge network that offers multiple learning opportunities and new opportunities for the school, the student, the teacher and the curriculum. The teacher becomes a manager of cross-cultural learning.
