The project aims to counteract the dependency people with special needs have on their family to support them. This will be done by promoting the active citizenship of the target group by acquiring skills which they may use for the labour market which in the project’s case will focus on the hotel and restaurant sector. The target group will become more independent and may be able to earn a source of income through the attaining skills at their own pace with qualified trainers.
To achieve such result it is vital to design, pilot and implement specific training programmes that will foster their abilities and provide them with proper skills to make them suitable and attractive for the employers too. Therefore the project aims at developing and piloting an overarching approach to design and run training paths leading to a possible qualification in the field of tourism, hospitality and catering (but also transferable to other vocational sectors).
