Liverpool Hospitality Learners in Spain
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project is a partnership between City of Liverpool College and MEP. The award of this grant would have a major impact on the young people of the Merseyside area and provide a life-changing opportunity. The objective of the project is to raise young people’s European career aspirations and increase their employability skills through undertaking a 22-day placement in Grenada. The project will engage with 30 learners, with the majority of participants from areas of disadvantage in Liverpool. Mobility participants will: • Undertake linguistic training; • Participate in cultural orientation and placement orientation sessions in Grenada ; • Undertake a placement within the hospitality and catering sector in Grenada (total of 22 days in placement) ; • Undertake a formal review and reflection of the Mobility including linguistic examination and a formal certification ceremony ; • Mobility dissemination sessions back in the UK. By participating in the mobility the participants will: • Develop professional and employability skills; • Learn and adapt to an unfamiliar language; • Gain new cultural awareness and awareness of other countries’ customs; • Be more motivated; • Strengthen self-confidence and social skills. The mobility will greatly enhance the participants’ portfolio/CVs and make the young people better-equipped for the wider European labour force. • The mobility will increase learners’ European/international aspiration, developing a global employment market; • Both staff and students will bring back new skills that will enhance local, regional and national training and customer experience; • Professional staff will have the opportunity to gain and disseminate knowledge to peers on a local, regional, national, European and international level.
