Kaišiadorys School of Business and Technology has coordinated an Erasmus+ KA1 project called "Enjoy your Meal". In the realm of this project, 8 students and 1 accompanying teacher from the Lithuanian institution worked in restaurants and bars of Celano, Italy from from February 3 to February 24, 2018. The mobility has been organized and managed by AMFI International.
The Erasmus+ project gave the participants, who are studying to become cook-waiters, the possibility to deepen their knowledge and skills getting in touch with the Italian culture and lifestyle. They were able to increase their competitiveness by acquiring real workplace experience and specific professional competences.
MAIN GOAL: To improve vocational skills, specific professional skills, main common competences and language skills of cook–waiter profession students, providing them with the possibility to do an international practice in foreign companies and to acquire new professional skills and competences according to their course of study.
AMFI International was able to organize such a programme thanks to the collaboration of several local partners:
PASTICCERIA IL CASTELLO
During their stay in Italy, participants acquired specific professional competences, such as:
Learned how to prepare traditional Italian starters;
Learned how to prepare traditional Italian prime dishes;
Learned recipes of various traditional Italian dishes and how to make them, prepare their ingredients;
Learned how to prepare traditional Abruzzo region dishes;
Learned how to prepare traditional Lazio region dishes;
Got known to different types of cheese and their usage in dishes preparation;
Were introduced to usage of various local vegetables;
Prepared and served tables with tablecloth, napkins, flatware, glasses and other settings;
Got skills and knowledge on how to take orders working together with the restaurant employee and on their own;
Got skills how to serve meals and drinks for customers;
Furthermore, they had the possibility to serve customers in English and Italian and to face new situations and problems.
This time was life changing for the students and positive for AMFI, as its staff gained even greater experience from hosting such good students from Kaišiadorys School of Business and Technology. Therefore, we hope that the cooperation with this Lithuanian institution will be able to strengthen and continue through time.
