The project was an answer to a demend for increased quality of educational offer directed to future tourism sector employees. Project activities consisted of 2-week of job practices in Greece directed to students of Zespół Szkół - Centrum Edukacji Zawodowej i Ustawicznej im. Mikołaja Kopernika who studied there professions of nourishment technician and hotel technician. The main aim of those practices was to gain experience, develompment of key job competences as well as soft skills and gaining a better start position on job market after finishing school education. The participants worked on various positions related to their education plan in the school - at the reception desk, room service, restaurats/bar or kitchen.
We sent abroad total of 60 participants and 8 curators who were there to support our trainees. The activities were divided into 4 stages - each consist of 2-week practices for a group of 15 youngsters and 2 curators. Each group consisted of different participants. The project was organized in the following periods: 09-22.04.2015, 24.04- 07.05.2015, 01-14.06.2015, 28.09-11.10.2015 . The hosting organizations was: Youthfully Yours Gr. Institution has a broad experience in organizing job practices, they have sufficient organizational capabilities, contacts on local labour market - which ensured the realization of all activities on the highest standard - concerning organization and logistics as well as essentials. Our trainees received an opportunity to work in the prestigious touristic resorts in the high-season, where the tourist traffic is increased and the demand for seasonal worker who know English rises. During the training the students had an opportunity to get to know with good practices of work organization at the reception desk, room service, restaurant and kitchen. The work schedule (attached to the application) consisted of various types of activities so we divided the group of trainees into smaller teams responsible for doing the job corresponding with their learning programme in Poland. The key competences they learned, helped the students in their everyday work in hotels and restaurants in Poland where they have their everyday practical training, as well as later on when they will be looking for a job. They will be able to present much more skills and knowledge to the potential employers increasing the chance of employment. Moreover if they decide to look for a job abroad they will already have an experience of working in a foreign country as well as they will have widely recognized documents certyfying their work competences.
Apart from concrete work competences - the training surely fostered individual development of young people. Thanks to spending those 2 weeks abroad, they became more independent, doing their everyday duties encouraged them to present more responsible attitudes, they become more self-aware of their worth,started to believe more in themselves. They had a possibility to compare their education and skills to their peers in other countries, realized that they are not so much different and help them to get rid of complexes. The important factor was development of social skills by working in an international environment. They developed their language skills (English + Greek) as well as non-verbal communication methods. During the language courses we have provided we focused on teaching a job-related vocabulary which was an invaluable asset to the young people.
