Presentation and dissemination of the project at Srednja šola za gostinstvo in turizem Celje

The presentation and dissemination of the project took place from 1 – 31 October 2018 at Srednja šola za gostinstvo in turizem Celje. We had four workshops, where the participants could use the e-learning platform and solve the tasks. There were 15 teachers participating in the workshop.

The presentation and workshops were carried out within the national project Munera 3 which offers people employed in the education sector to take part in different training courses to improve their competences due to the needs on the labour market, better employability and mobility between working areas as well as personal development and functioning in modern society. 

I started the presentation of the project by presenting the previous project “Key skills for Hotel industry Staff” first because it was easier to understand the idea of the new project “Language skills and intercultural issues in the hospitality industry: unity in diversity in the EU labour market”. I then briefly presented the language courses for all levels – A1, A2/B1, B1/C1 and C1 and showed some examples for different languages and how the system grades the tasks so that every participant can get feedback on the work done. Furthermore, I mentioned the additional materials, such as curricula, guidelines, etc., available on the platform.

After a more detailed demonstration of A1 modules the participants choose different languages to solve the tasks offered. The first workshop ended with the agreement that all participants would do some more tasks at home to get used to the e-learning platform and the types of tasks. In the following three workshops I presented the modules A2/B1, B2/C1 and C1 in more detailed. Each presentation was then followed by an intensive workshop, where the participants choose different languages and tasks and solved them. The idea was also for each participant to find the material, topics and tasks they could use in class with their students.

International day 2018

For the 5 th time Vilnius Business College organized the International Day for international students, during which students studying here as well as those from other higher education institutions came together for joint meeting and celebration. VVK director Jolanta Skirgailė expressed her joy that the community of international students grows larger and stronger every year, and this Day is a nice occasion for everybody to know one another and get acquainted with cultures of other countries. 

The celebration started with the event organized by NGOs Information and Support Centre in cooperation with the College. This year’s topic was “Studies in Lithuania: what’s next? Employment of international students in Lithuania”. During the workshop visiting speakers talked about the job market in Lithuania, procedure of issuing temporary work and study visas, the expanding sectors that might be of interest to international students. Ričardas Jaščemskas, a member of the council of Lithuanian Game Developers Association, spoke about the sector of computer games. A representative of one of the largest job seekers’ portals “CV online” Rita Karavaitienė noted that IT sector remains the leading one, wherein the demand for employees remains the highest. She provided students with practical advice on how to prepare for a job interview, which employees are currently in highest demand in the job market and which employers may be of interest for international students in Lithuania. 

After the event there was a celebration when students offered national dishes of their countries, presented their culture, danced, sang, communicated and rejoiced in their friendship.
