Marketing Text Training Safety and Security in Tourism
The project aims to assist the improvement of the skills and knowledge in safety and security in tourism by elaborating new vocational training products.
It plans the employees and managers in tourism SMEs operating in hotels, restaurants and indoor places for entertainment to improve their knowledge and skills in safety and security, based on contemporary electronic devises and thus to respond to the issues of increasing compatibility and higher demands for safety and security measures in the tourism sector in the recent years.
Our experience from previous projects and activities and need studies in the tourism sector points out that some of the managers and employees in the tourism sector have skills and knowledge in safety and security based on modern ICT means and applications, but most of them do not have the necessary minimum that is required nowadays. Besides this the modern systems and requirements became more sophisticated and complicated.
This outlines the major directions for improvement of qualifications of the staff and managers in tourism sector, especially hotels, restaurants and indoor places for entertainment. On the basis of defining the skill gaps and trends of qualifying the personnel, a comparative analysis based on the current status studies in the partner countries, a Training guide (4 modules) of safety and security aspects with regard to hotels, restaurants and indoor places for entertainment and a Training curriculum will be produced.
The proposed project aims to develop training products regarding the skills and knowledge of staff and managers in toureism SMEs in the field of safety and security based on the new ICT applicationsIt will elaborate new VET tools which will reflect the current status in the new countries and the newest requirements and technologies in the area, thus adapting and updating the products from the previous project. The planned project will have also innovative approach with regard to the new target groups and main end users of the new products, consisting of service proveder entities in tourism, as well as the focused attention on the ICT use for safety and security purposes and the management.
