INCOME

The Malta University Consulting Ltd is partnering with twelve entities from seven EU countries (Portugal, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Germany, Netherlands and Malta) in a 3-year Erasmus+ KA2 funded project named INCOME Tourism. This project aims at developing a different learning approach to soft skills learning based on a cooperative learning process as part of a Tourism related course leading to a Bachelor’s Degree. INCOME Tourism will bring academia, students and industry together in a new cooperative learning model with learning outcomes for soft skills adapted to the real, evolving and demanding needs of the tourism industry. 

To address the challenges that the tourism sector is going through, the Erasmus+ INCOME Tourism project is promoting a Webinar series on “Skills for Today & Tomorrow I Tourism Education, Employability and Industry-University cooperation”.  It will discuss how Industry-University cooperation initiatives such as the dual education systems address these quests.  The target audience for the webinar series is all stakeholders in the tourism industry – governments, employers, educators, and tourism students and professionals.  The fourth and final session “Dual Cooperative Education – in-depth view from an academic perspective” will take place on 18th May, from 10.00 to 11.30 (CET).  Participation is free but registration for the webinar is required.  Sign up and stay tuned here
