For the #ErasmusDays2018, the EPALE teams wished to raise awareness about the European Union commitment in adult lifelong learning. They created a digital exhibition with 22 different projects, demonstrating the variety of practices across Europe.

Funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation and Erasmus+, its objective is to improve the labour markets relevance and quality of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in tourism.
By addressing the tremendous potential of the Albanian tourism sector to increase employment and trigger economic growth, the project hopes to boost the quality of services in tourism as proposed under Albania’s four national development priorities. A prerequisite for this is to raise the level of access to tourism education and training, and enhance its relevance in the marketplace.
In order to reach this target, the project seeks to train twenty vocational teachers/instructors from eleven VET tourism schools in culinary arts and service. Two training exchanges with Austrian teachers occurred in December 2017 and June 2018, with further trainings planned during later phases of the project.
