About the project
Flexible Up-skilling pathways for professionals in the field of tourism (2019-1-SK01-KA204-060777) is a KA2 project in the field of adult education, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme. The project is led by the Slovak organisation Klaster Regionálneho Rozvoja (Cluster of Regional Development) and four partner organisations: Centro Superior de Formación Europa Sur (Spain), Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (Greece), Cittá Metropolitana di Catania (Italy) and parkPark (Slovakia).
The project has a double aim: on one hand, to identify the skills and competences gaps in the tourism sector and on the other, to promote flexible up-skilling pathways for professionals in the tourism sector and provide them with an appealing and interactive programme that will combine the use of technology with flexible learning environments.
