Иновативни практики в туризма
Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project "Innovative practices in tourism" is initiated by The Secondary Vocational School of Economics, Administration and Service "Atanas Burov", Silistra. It successfully fits the profile of the high school and the context of our town and region. The difficulties in the economy are making their presence felt in our region, and their resolution requires greater professional education, striving for continuous improvement and improving the competitiveness of the young people. The requirement of highly qualified, competent, entrepreneurial, adaptable to the rapidly changing demands of the Labor Market personnel motivates our desire to put students in a real working environment in another European country with a tradition in the tourism, where they can practice what they have learned in the school and at the same time learn new skills and competencies. The project will involve students from the "Organization of Tourism and Leisure" class who study intensive French language. The French For Professional includes "Hospitality industry ". According to the curriculum for this class, students study subjects such as "Introduction to the Tourism", "Organisation of the Kitchen and the Restaurant in a Hotel", "Geography of the Tourism", "Accounting in the Tourism", "Organization of the Excursion service", " Tourist animation". In order to obtain third degree of professional qualifications as “Manager of Tourist agency”, student take exams in theory and practice of the profession. This is done in grade 12th. Part of the exam is conducted in French, which determines the need for the implementation of the mobility project in France. This way, the students will have the opportunity to deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge in the specialty which will help them prepare for the success in the State exams. This defines the target group and the language of the project. The project will be completed within 24 months (01.07.2015 - 01.07.2017) and will include the following stages: 1. Preparation - information, selection of participants, negotiating with partners, initial preparation; 2. Real - travel arrangements, practice , monitoring, project evaluation, validation and certification of acquired from the participants knowledge, skills and competencies; 3.

We must emphasize the policy of integration and consolidation, which conducts the school in order to provide equal access, full participation in the educational process of all students, allowing them to participate into international projects, creating an atmosphere of mutual respect, tolerance and understanding, creating a proper social psychological climate for their full development. The high school rewards a great role and importance of European mobility programs - a link between the education and the business which allows not only to improve the quality of education and achievement of professional competence, but also for the development of social-cultural knowledge and skills, not less important for the success on the Modern Labor Market.
