SSPICE IT! Sustainable development in HORECA's training courses

European project
November 2022 to March 2025

Coordinated by the Metropolitan City of Rome (Italy), the Erasmus+ SSPICE IT! project, of which POUR LA SOLIDARITÉ-PLS is a partner, aims to develop a training program integrating sustainable development into the HORECA business.

Involving 4 European partners as well as 5 vocational schools (VET centers), SSPICE IT! aims to make HORECA training courses more relevant to current issues and more environmentally responsible. Teachers from the various schools involved in the project will be trained to test the training developed directly with students intending to work in the food and catering professions.

What for?

1)  A skills assessment and career guidance tool that will be used to assess the skills acquired through the training program, in a fun and innovative way through the use of games and simulated scenarios.

3)  A Living Lab on green, digital and entrepreneurial skills in the food and catering sector.
