Enhancing quality jobs, apprenticeships and traineeships in the tourism sector across Europe
Description of call
"Enhancing quality jobs, apprenticeships and traineeships in the tourism sector across Europe"
The overall objective of this call is to facilitate the uptake of high quality jobs, apprenticeships and traineeships positions in the tourism sector across the EU, with a particular focus on SMEs.

Specific objectives of the call are to:
1) Promote through education providers the image of careers in the Tourism sector.
2) Enable and encourage jobseekers and tourism businesses, particularly SMEs to use existing tools and funding opportunities in order to find and offer apprenticeships and jobs in other EU countries, (e. g. EURES, Your First Eures Job, Drop' Pin, European Alliances for Apprenticeships, Erasmus+).
3) Promote such tools and funding opportunities, also through education providers.
4) Promote the importance of acquiring quality and relevant skills, particularly through transnational experiences, and encourage mobility across the EU, taking advantage of low season periods.
5) Facilitate exchanges of good practices, the development of networks and discussion platforms between education providers and the private sector to boost employability in the tourism sector
6) Support transnational cooperation and public-private partnerships to adapt the existing education provision so that it better meets the emerging needs of employers and reflects new trends and developments in the tourism sector (e.g; digitalization, ageing of the population, new types of customers).

Applicants are required to propose a model with the aim to boost employability of young Europeans in the tourism sector. This model will focus on cross-border apprenticeships, traineeships and upgrading of skills. It should have a strong practical approach, such as analysis of experiences, participation of testimonials, guidance. Involvement of different operators in the tourism supply chain will be evaluated more favourably.
