Description The model was initially developed for two professions in the fields of tourism and services – “Cook” and “Shop Assistant”, and offers practice to be implemented at sectoral level. This is due to two reasons. On the first place, studies show that tourism is among the major engines of economic development for EU and employs a significant proportion of immigrants within the EU. On the other hand, analysis and researches at European level, as summarized in the "New Skills for New Jobs" initiative, show that the services sector is expected to reveal three-quarters of all the new jobs in EU countries. On the second part, the time frame of the VALEU project is supposed to create practically applicable scheme to be tested in real conditions and with the participation of real beneficiaries. Target group of the project are immigrants who currently live in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey and are mainly employed in the field of tourism and trade. That is why this pilot model of a validation system is focused on the experience, gained in the field of tourism and services, and particularly the trade.
