Opleiding animatie en local rep
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Se-n-Se programme in Tourism and Entertainment offers students a one-year, hands-on schooling finished off by a foreign internship. The training is to be situated on level 4 of the European Qualifications Framework. The field of study specialises in the tourism branch, specifically on the jobs of Holiday Rep and Entertainer. The 7-week traineehip took place in May and June, a period in which the tourist season is slowly taking off. This traineehip was set in one of the hotels of our partner, Melià Hotels International, or was conducted with touroperator TUI upon European destinations. During the internship, the students fully participated in the tasks of the professional team and received constant feedback on how to improve on their professional qualities and adjust their in-job attitudes. The final goal of succesfully finishing theTourism and Entertainment programme is to get as many students as possible aquainted with and employed in the Tourism field. The 35 students, between 18 and 20 years of age, all with a broad field of interest and eager to expand their horizon abroad, can be divided into three subcategories. The first category does not yet feel mature enough to immediately enter the job market, a second category feels that the step towards higher education (bachelor or master curricula) is too big a step. A third group still suffer from the disillusion of having entered a programme of higher education which prooved to be too theoretical. The students in the tourism and recreation programme all experienced surplus value regarding international contacts with a lasting character. We achieved the following results with our project: students attain a certificate, inflow on the labour market, better knowledge of foreign languages, maturity and selfsufficiency. Our school can also rely on long term cooperations with the international training partners, Melià Hotels International and TUI and also profits from the positive feedback on the programme by former students. Our school is well-known in the whole of the Bruges’ area and beyond because of this project.
