ETHIT Europe thinks in Tourism. Tourism Knowledge Network in Europe

The main goal of the ETHIT project has been contributing to better understand and improve the non formal and informal learning processes in vocational and continuous training in the field of tourism in Europe, by means of developing the Tourism Knowledge Network in Europe www.thinkintourism.comThis network aims to bring closer the VET systems and the world of work in the field of Tourism since it allows the interaction, within the same space of students and experienced workers who will be able to undertake informal learning processes to improve their qualification level and knowledge in a market which is totally influenced by Web 2.O.Qualification of the human resources in the sector is of key importance in all these countries, since the Tourism Industry is highly competitive and is key in the national economies of many countries. Despite vocational training systems are continually adapting to the labour market needs, the changes in the market are being so fast, especially in what concern to the key role of the Internet and social networks, that formal and even non-formal vocational training programmes do not cover all the knowledge that a worker in the tourism industry need to have in order to be competitive. Informal learning processes are essential to generate knowledge to be shared among the tourism professional and students and in this sense, the ETHIT Network is a really useful tool to channel all these processes of informal learning with the international dimension required by globalization and by the inherent nature of an industry like tourism.
