Sustainable Tourism Innovative Training
The objective of SUSTAIN IT is to enhance the competitiveness of the sustainable tourism sector by developing and delivering innovative, concrete and actionable training to tourism sector’s operators (current and prospective). SUSTAIN IT will deliver the training both via traditional means (face-2-face) and through the dedicated Open Educational Resource.
The target group is current and prospective tourism operators to enhance their skills and competences in planning, implementing and marketing viable solutions/services of sustainable tourism. SUSTAIN IT is targeted at individual professionals, microenterprises or SMEs in any sector of the tourism value-chain (transport, guide, accommodation, food & drink, etc.)
SUSTAIN IT supports the development of skills necessary for sustainable tourism sector in an innovative way: the innovative method of SUSTAIN IT relies on its bottom-up and demand driven approach while consolidating on the expertise and experience of VET practitioners and technical experts. The innovative method also relies on the openness of approach in the exploitation of results, making of SUSTAIN IT an open platform not only for training and capacity building, but also for networking, cross-border integration throughout EU.
SUSTAIN IT supports the integration of digital solutions and ICT in learning, teaching and training by developing, testing and validating and finally deploying at full scale a Open Educational Resource that will allow to exploit and mainstream project results outside the realm of the partnership and in other EU realities and countries. The needs of the target groups are not “country-specific” and the OER Platform in multilingual version (6 languages) will address a European issue with a European solution.
