Kaišiadorys School of Business and Technology has coordinated an Erasmus+ KA1 project called “Professional skills for today's labor market”. The Erasmus+ project gave 6 students of cook-waiter profession and 1 accompanying teacher from Lithuania the opportunity to work in restaurants and bars of Avezzano, Italy from from July 6th to 27th, 2019. 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: Project’s main goal was to improve both practical skills and abilities of cook–waiter profession students in order to have their match with today’s labor market trends.
AMFI International was able to organize such a programme thanks to the collaboration of several local partners:
Umami Restaurant Cafe
Gran Caffè Avezzano
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.
