A1.- First-year students to stay for 2 weeks in the United Kingdom: two flows of 10 students each:
5.5 million Tourists have culinary motivation as one of the main reasons to visit Spain, according to data made public in the I European Congress on Tourism and Gastronomy. Taking into account that one more year the Tourist Observatory of the Valencian Community confirms that our community received approximately 5 million foreign tourists last year (together with Andalusia, the two autonomous regions with a greater average stay) and being the United Kingdom the main market of origin with an expenditure on catering services above the average (17.1)has made understand the Central Administration, the autonomous, as well as the hospitality sector that gastronomy is one of the main claims and attractions when planning a trip, and gastronomic experience perceived by tourists greatly influences the final perception of the destination.
A3.-Second year students in training in work centres TWC’S (2 months and 3 weeks) and newly graduates (3 months) in France, Portugal:
Sustainable and lasting employment, the performances of a job suitable to the abilities acquired by young people, and ultimately, provide that they have the opportunity to develop their skills in a European labour market freely and outside their place of origin, are some of the objectives that integrate European priorities.
DESCRIPTION AND JUSTIFICATION OF THE TYPES OF MOBILITY TO STUDENTS AND TEACHERS:
Following the guidelines compiled by the EDP approved by Faculty of professors in September 2014, and in line with the objectives already in the first mobility for teachers project approved "Gastronomic Profile of our Prior Market": English tourists, which are summarized in this way:
We want this 2 week stay to be preparatory and decision-making so the student can choose responsibly, perform the training module in work centres TWC’S workplace (2nd year) in a European country, experience that we consider fundamental to the future of students and today is an election that represents neither 1% of the students of our Centre; We continue as a fundamental objective of this application:
a – Our aim is that the training module in work centres TWC’S (in the form of stage, TWC’S , or as training for the graduates) can become a normal practice among the students of the Centre and the dynamics to be integrated into the process of teaching and learning as part of the curriculum.
b- That students have the opportunity to choose responsibly to spend a training period abroad, through a prior stage supervised by teachers.
In this way we propose two initiatives aimed at two profiles of students in the Medium degree of Hospitality Studies:
A1 - to first-year students: 2 weeks at a European centre stage. (Host Centre:’ West Lothian College’ in the United Kingdom)
A3 - to second year students and graduates: realization of the training module in work centres- TWC’S- (2 months and 3 weeks), as well as a period of 3 months for newly graduated students (United Kingdom, France and Portugal; in tourist-catering companies).
-TEACHERS A2, teachin in a host centre, West Lothian College, 1 week.
Profile of the participants: English teachers of Hospitality and Tourism.
Currently, the permanent training that the teachers at the Valencia Community have, it is developed in the geographical area of the same, and does not provide for this type of projects within the permanent teacher training.
JUSTIFICATION OF HOST DESTINATIONS
The linguistic objective is present in the United Kingdom and France destinations. In the case of PORTUGAL the aim is that students of the Centre to develop the capacities acquired during the duration of their academic studies, and at the same time have the opportunity to be in contact with European environment without that language barrier.
