Author: liga.tuca Date: 19.03.2013

On March 15, Baltic partners of the project – Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences, Latvia, Klaipeda University, Lithuania, and Estonian School of Hotel and Tourism Management, Estonia, met in Riga to evaluate the project progress and further discuss the establishment of the joint programme.

The partners discussed the results of the training on student group consultancy method that was carried out in Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), United Kingdom. As a result each Baltic partner will implement the new teaching approach in their institution with the support of MMU. The first testing is organized by ViA and its results will be available already in June.

As well as that, during the meeting the summer school testing was discussed. During the two weeks in summer, the first cooperation models and contents of the new programme will be tested.

The partners discussed also the next meeting agenda in Tallinn on June 3 – 4, 2013, and agree on the goals to be achieved. The project foresees the development of the programme for licensing, so a lot of work is ahead during the 2nd partner meeting and over the summer to prepare the programme for licensing.

At the end of the meeting, in cooperation with the Association of Hotels and Restaurants of Latvia, a visit to hotel Astor was organized to meet the professional representatives, and get their feedback regarding the project aims and needs of the labour market.
