Description Summary of the Training Needs Analysis conducted by the partners
Target group The first step of the Training and Needs Analysis of WP2 of the project Street Food was to undertake a research in the street food sector in each of the respective partner countries. These individual researches have functioned as the basis for the comparison analysis and thus helped to gain a deep understanding of the current status quo of the entrepreneurial level in the street food sector and the street food cultural aspects in the individual countries as well.
Result , there is a very clear demand for the training support for the street food entrepreneur in the English language with some parts translated in other languages. While there is catering and restaurant related literature available, there is a lack of specialized knowledge for the success in the mobile food sector. Therefore, the `Street Food: Opportunities for Entrepreneurs´ Project will close the gap by implementing an online training course, which is providing the missing information and will lead to exchange of knowledge between Street Food vendors from all over Europe. This training should be in the form mentioned on the page above, under the outcomes of the interviews. Further, the training should focus on specific legal needs on which market organisers focus. This varies from country to country, but the legal issues count heavy. Especially in Spain, compliance with authorities and regulations is very important. The street food market is a free market and entrepreneurs could behave accordingly.
Area of application The product is used to inform the project partners of the best way forward with the project.
