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.

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
– Promote through education providers the image of careers in the Tourism sector;
– 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;
– Promote such tools and funding opportunities, also through education providers;
– 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;
– 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;
– 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).

Priorities
– Better use of tools and opportunities existing across EU for those who offer/look for a job in another member State in the tourism sector;
– Supporting education providers in developing appropriate skills for the tourism sector;
– Contribution to the growth of employment in the tourism sector;
– Fostering a greater sense of European identity. 

Among financed actions 
– 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;
– Creation of a tool-box i) promoting tourism careers and their attractiveness and ii) presenting the tools and opportunities existing across EU for those who offer/look for a job in another Member State in the tourism sector;
– Six awareness-raising and communication events to promote tourism careers and existing tools facilitating mobility across Europe;
– Specific training initiatives for entrepreneurs of the tourism sector on how to recruit talents.
