KA-2 TOUR - EU Tourism Mentoring
EU Tourism Mentoring Projects actives are to:
- Transfer the Methodology and Training Path designed in the UK for mentors
- Improve the training offer for mentors in the UK and Europe in close cooperation with employers and practitioners
- Initiate the transfer of mentoring techniques though a mentoring pilot, identifying sector benefits.
- Produce a final Methodology and Training Path designed for EU valorisation
Short-term impact on the tourism sector; introducing the cost-effective means of developing staff - by first developing mentors, and thus developing mentees.
Longer-term impact; building capacity in organisations, with: managers. staff teams, trainers, mentoring professionals, VET institutions, public bodies.
The project will result in several products. One of them is the workbook with four parts and includes the four areas concerning mentoring that will be covered in the training path.
IO 1 – Co-ordinator Guide: This is the section aimed at all those who want to start a structured mentoring programme. It gives an overview of what mentoring is and gives guidance in those areas that are essential for setting up a successful programme, from designing a planning it to managing and running it.
IO 2 – Mentor Guide: This section is aimed at would be mentors and those who are doing mentoring informally. It covers responsibilities, skills, values, techniques and includes useful templates.
IO 3 – Mentee Guide: This section is aimed at would be mentees and is intending to help mentees focus on what they want to get out our of mentoring, how to behave with their mentors and includes useful templates.
IO 4 – Business Mentoring: This section is an introduction to business mentoring and explains the levels of knowledge, experience and understanding required to be a good business mentor. It is designed to go hand in hand with the Mentor Guide.
Other results include:
- Context analysis and best practice
- Adapted, Europeanised and translated mentoring toolkit in the national languages of the imported nations
- Training and development of the aspiring mentors in the imported nations via workshops , testing methodology and training path
- Mentoring pilot (matching mentors and mentees, mentoring process, evaluation of results and experience gained during training path pilots)
- Evaluated materials based upon the results and experience gained, its dissemination and exploitation
Socializing Tourism, integrated training course for social tourism
The project’s main objectives are described as follows:
- This project took origin from the desire of all partners to promote social tourism, defined as "the right to tourism for all." The period of economic crisis, that all of Europe is going through, invests mainly young people and led to an increase in the unemployment rate. The purpose of this project was to provide an additional tool for local communities to promote their reality through tourism. SoTo developed a training model which was implemented through lessons along with “job shadowing” and project works for the creation of touristic personalized services package for tourists with new needs. Our intention was to involve local public and private actors, non-governmental organizations, associations and any other organization that could help us improving and promoting the knowledge concerning the social tourism.
Product information- A training model which will be implemented through lessons along with “job shadowing” and project works;

- xx letters of agreement with VET organisations, mainstreaming round tables, workshops and dissemination activities.
Young Europeans, Skills for Employability in Tourism
EUROSTAT data regarding workers in the “hotel & restaurant” sector , reveal certain key elements:
• A lack of formal learning paths, which creates difficulty for workers in validating their competencies following standard
• The prevalence of non-formal learning experiences, which must become visible:
• Workers’ difficulty in interpreting their experience and competencies as a wealth to be brought forward and made
transparent. The YES-Employability Project proposal regards the definition of a common system to make competencies in the hotel
industry transparent, towards achieving a common protocol of representation of the competencies within the Europass instruments. The adoption and deployment of the instruments proposed by the YES Project is an important step to making both formal and non-formal learning transparent to respond not only to technical needs, but also to the difficulty in obtaining broad consensus regarding the representation and attribution of value/credit to the individual competencies and knowledge. Moreover, the proposal fits well into the strategic lines of the European Community contributing “to the
promotion of a Europe of knowledge through the development of a European area of cooperation in the education and professional training sector and supporting the policies of the Member States on life long training and the development of knowledge, aptitudes and competencies aimed at fostering an active and employable citizenship”.
The YES Project proposes the adaptation and transfer of the methodology and instruments of the identified best practices
(NEW HOSPITALITY) towards:
(1) Target Group: the best practice and related instruments will be transferred through an adaptation and implementation process, from one target group comprising end-users represented by students participating in programmes of study offered by vocational and technical schools operating in the Tourism/Hospitality sector.
Moreover the transfer foresees a diversification of the target users, in the sense that the outputs will be developed, tested and deployed not only on behalf
of the students but also by educators and trainers who would normally certify technical and professional competencies.
(2) Geographical Area: The partnership will involve partners coming from countries other than those in which the best practice has taken place.
Creative blended mentoring for cultural managers
The methodology proposed in the "Creative blended mentoring for cultural managers" project is first to identify the real needs of the target groups by mapping/forecasting the skills needed in a competitive cultural labour.
A draft of questionnaire of the skills needed and the learning outcomes and competence is draft based on the consortium experience and then is carried out by sending out questionnaires and interviews to a cluster of 100 experienced cultural mangers working in the culture sector in the different areas of the cultural field of each partner country. Each partner is going to carry out this research on the relevant field of competence to have a global view of the cultural sector.
The data collected is discussed in the international focus groups with 10 relevant stakeholder (public sector, enterprises, cultural managers, policy makers, unemployed) to assess the new needs in the cultural sectors and to incorporate in the new curricula the skills and competences gained through non formal informal learning. The results of the data collecting are going to be elaborated in a new curricula framework which is going to be used as a reference for the development of the creative blended mentoring in what learning outcomes a cultural manager needs to possess.
The structure/training method of the creative blended mentoring will be a mix use of an internal mentor and an external mentor is positive on to levels: the use of intern mentor is a new way of perceiving the role of an internal figure becoming the trainer of their colleagues(cascading effect), moreover the internal mentoring allows team building, development of know-how, and is a transferable model, creates reference figures. The external mentor brings inside new ideas and vitality.
The traditional mentoring methodology divided in 3 phases is integrated by a platform where mentors and mentee can keep in touch.
The Creative blended mentoring for cultural managers project aims at
-Developing a new cultural curricula framework to foster employability of precarious cultural managers.
-Developing a new training methodology based on the blended mentoring method to foster creative thinking, entrepreneurship thinking competence supporting the matching between cultural managers expectations and the labour market.
-Testing a EU creative blended mentoring kit to innovate vocational training in a non formal and informal setting based on work learning experience and on the learning outcomes approach increasing transparency and comparability and validation by applying the EQF(European quality framework).
Women Entrepreneurs in Rural Tourism
- Women entrepreneurs involved in rural tourism and crafts
- Women who seek to enter the sector in order to become economically active and independent
