The first dissemination that Primrose Publishing undertook in the new EU project, which began on 1st September 2016, was at a school in Slovenia where the company has had very close and successful ties for many years: Srednja šola za gostinstvo in turizem Celje. As the project’s first meeting of partners was being held in Slovenia,, the school was an obvious choice.
SSGT is a catering and tourism school located in Celje, a town in central Slovenia. On several occasions in recent years the school has sent a team of teachers to Cambridge University where Primrose Publishing has been running a very successful six-day course on “Euro Skills”. The school’s headmaster, who also took part in one of them, was one of the most enthusiastic supporters of these Euro Skills courses.
The offer to hold a dissemination event at the school, following the project’s meeting of partners in Murska Sobota, was welcomed enthusiastically. Its form was agreed with the headmaster who was keen for his top class to take part in a round-table discussion in English attended by one of the senior teachers. It took place on 17th October 2016.
The event proved extremely effective. Many of the 18 students had an opportunity to express their views in English on a variety of subjects related to our new EU project, and in particular the need for hotel staff and others working in tourism to improve their language skills. The aims and activities of the project were explained in detail and all the students expressed a wish to have access to many of the items, especially the descriptions of 50 national dishes of each country`involved, the four smartphone apps and the digital maps.
