VALEU Project

Validation of immigrants’ vocational skills and competencies in tourism and services as an integration warrant in the EU (VALEU)

The project is co-funded by the Leonardo da Vinci programme of the European Union.

Main objectives of the project
- To create a pilot methodology for recognition and validation of vocational skills gained through work experience and competencies acquired through informal and non-formal learning related to it as a tool fostering integration of immigrants and mobile workers in the new EU MSs.
- To transfer the best practices of professional skills validation in tourism and services for the purposes of vocational education in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey.

The main activities within the project included:
- to study the needs and promote the opportunities for validation of work experience acquired in the home country so as to allow full-right integration of immigrants in the EU labour market
- to create a model procedure for validation and recognition of work experience and competencies as vocational qualification in tourism and services
- to develop a model training program for validation of foreign work experience and competencies as vocational qualification for immigrants in tourism and services
- to prove the practical implication of validation of prior work experience and competencies in tourism and services
- to publish and publicize the main research and innovation outcomes of the project of the stakeholders in the partner countries
- to promote and disseminate the project results

VALEU equips the partner countries with a working model for vocational skills gained through professional experience and competencies acquired through informal and non-formal learning connected to the professional experience in services and tourism that can be multiplied to other economic sectors.
