InTour - INclusive TOURism professions European curricula for accessible tourism manager and frontline staff

Inclusive and accessible tourism for all

Project duration: 01 January 2020 – 31 December 2022
Funding: Erasmus+

Background

The IN-TOUR project aims to fill a gap in the European training system. This project will identify and analyse qualification gaps in the European education sector for inclusive tourism to establish the specifications for a European curriculum at the level of EQF 6 (Tourism Manager) and EQF 4 (Frontline Staff). The curricula will be defined in a flexible and modular way to create a general European reference model that can be implemented in any EU Member State. The curricula will be tested by local pilot partners (one of them FHD) and will integrate phases of work-based learning.

Accessible or inclusive tourism is about enabling as many people as possible to participate in touristic activities. Facilitating tourism is not only a social responsibility - a significant economic benefit can also be gained from the targeted accessibility improvements, as they strengthen the competitiveness of tourism in Europe.

AFBB is primarily responsible for quality management in the project.

Objectives

The overall aim of the project is to equip managers and frontline staff in tourism sector with the appropriate knowledge, skills and competences to provide inclusive services for all customers especially those with special access requirements. The project will foster the definition of proper national and local qualifications and regulations. IN-TOUR also aims at promoting the collaboration among policy makers/ regulatory bodies and VET providers.

Planned project results

  • The definition of two professional profiles for Inclusive Tourism Manager and Inclusive Tourism Frontline Staff
  • The definition of two European Curricula for Inclusive Tourism Manager and Inclusive Tourism Frontline Staff to be promoted as reference framework for the professional profile in accessible tourism at European level for VET
  • Guidelines supporting teachers to design effective learning activities starting from the localized curricula
  • Five pilot courses will be carried out in Germany, Greece and Italy
  • free open contents
