Descrizione

The ProEnGaT project aims to promote cross-border professional opportunities for young people, using youth work as a resource to support employability and allow early familiarization of young people to the labour market, thus strengthening their sense of empowerment and independence. The project will also equip young workers with professional skills and working experience and later promote their validation through the appropriate European Instruments, e.g. Europass, further enriching participants CVs and their sense of achievement.

The ProEnGaT project aims to enhance the skills and competences of people interested in working or starting their own business relative to the gastronomy market. The project’s goal is to contribute to the development of the skills that will give trainees access to the European labour market by proving them with competitive knowledge, reinforce their skills and competences, and promote entrepreneurship education whilst stimulating European cooperation in Gastronomy Tourism. The project will enhance good practice examples among participating institutions on training and activities that promote gastronomy tourism and will develop training courses for young unemployed graduates of hospitality related professions or young people not in education, employment or training (NEETS) seeking an opportunity to enter the job market.
