In Skills Swap, we have a number of objectives. These include:

  • Designing, testing and validating a new work-based learning programme for employees and trainees in hospitality through ‘skills swaps’
  • Support hospitality companies and employers with a new work-based method to train and develop their staff
  • Provide hospitality sector workers and apprentices with new, contemporary and relevant job skills (‘hard’ and ‘soft’) through skills swapping
  • Equip trainers, coordinators and other types of educators working in the vocational training system (trainers, assessors, company HR personnel, staff with responsibilities for arranging work experience, job ‘tasters’, traineeships & apprenticeships) with new ‘skill swap’-based resources and techniques

Over the lifetime of the project, there are various ways for all of the above to get involved. Each partner organisation is organising an ‘advisory group’ of informal get-togethers to discuss the project; we will also be running different elements of pilot testing to try out the models that we develop and to get full and honest feedback from everyone taking part.

We will have many informal meetings locally and every few months (Covid travel restrictions depending) the partners will meet at one of their locations to discuss the project.

Keep your eye out for any networking events – but we also have a full programme of events in the summer of 2023, when we will be able to formally share all of our results and look to the future.

Being an Erasmus+ project, we are also designing results that, once we have tried them out, we will publish and share. These results, which are called ‘Intellectual Outputs’ will be produced at various points between 2021 and 2023 and can be obtained on this section of the website when they are finalised.

They are as follows:
