Context

The TourEdu4All project, a collaborative effort between nine partners from Greece, Germany, Spain, Gambia, Kenya and Namibia aims to contribute to tourism education in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

With a focus on enhancing employability among vulnerable groups (such as youth and women, especially in rural areas), the project seeks to provide equitable access to vocational education and training (VET) in tourism while promoting cooperation among VET institutions. By developing a Holistic Model for inclusive Tourism, TourEdu4All addresses the region’s need for accessible and high-quality education.

Objective of the project

To increase the employability of youth in the SSA region, including disadvantaged groups and women

To create pathways for equitable access to SSA Tourism VET

To foster international and intra-national networked cooperation of Tourism VET institutions on the basis of exchanging Good Practices, knowledge and technical resources

To render the SSA Tourism VET ecosystem relevant to the requirements of the Tourism industry

To actively support the SSA Tourism VET ecosystem by facilitating financial support and exchanging-income generating strategies across Tourism VET institutions

Results

National and Regional Development

The project seeks to align the skills offered by SSA Tourism VET with current and future
job opportunities, while also aiming to widen access to tourism VET for individuals
regardless of their socio-economic status. This highlights the project’s potential impact
on economic development and social inclusivity.

Improvement of Capacities

TourEdu4All aims to enhance the technical, managerial, and pedagogical skills of its
learners, including VET providers, teachers, and trainers, in various areas such as
management, governance, inclusion, quality assurance, innovation, and
internationalization. This reflects the project’s focus on capacity building within the
tourism education sector.

Fostering Intercultural Understanding

The project serves as a platform for promoting intercultural dialogue and understanding among learners and educators. It strives to cultivate a sense of global citizenship and collaboration, transcending geographical boundaries. This highlights the projec’s broader aim of promoting cultural exchange and cooperation.
