Cultural Tourism is a growing industry and many employment opportunities are being opened all over the world. Therefore, there is a growing demand for specialists in the field while in the same time, specialized qualifications on cultural tourism are rare.
The CULTVET project is offering an enormous opportunity for people interested to work in the field of cultural tourism. It is providing a professional qualification jointly developed by 4 VET organisations from 4 Mediterranean European countries: Nuevas Profesiones from Spain, Istituto d’Istruzione Superiore “Luigi Einaudi” from Italy, Eurosuccess from Cyprus and the Vocational Training Centre of Lesvos Regional Unit in Greece (KEKAPEL). The project is offering also the opportunity for an internationally recognized accreditation of the skills acquired by ACTA – Aristotle Certification – Training and Assessment.
This joint qualification includes 200 hours of classroom based lessons as well as 300 hours of guaranteed practical training in an enterprise or organization active in the field of cultural tourism. 8 of the students who will participate in the course [2 for each training country] will have also the opportunity to make their practical training abroad.
This week we were in London for another EDACATE meeting. European Dialogue for Active Citizenship EDACATE is a project that follows a cross-sectoral approach interpreted in order to collect, review and publish new and innovative approaches in the training on Active citizenship.
