Participation in the project enables this group to gain free access to an attractive extracurricular and informal form of studying (including professional, linguistic, cultural and social education), what enriches their motivation for studying and increases their psychological self confidence (e.g. to overcome barriers of communication). In summary, the participation in the project may significantly influence students' professional and personal development.

The learnt skills will be crucial during the realisation of vocational training in our partner's country. The practical training will be organised in the host organization – its professionally equipped workshop rooms (1st week of the training) and entrepreneurs catering companies (restaurants, bakeries, patisseries and other catering establishments (2nd -4th week of the training) located in Dinan – our partner's home town.
