FACE in itinere

Online inventory of European training courses and exchange program for internships and visits to cheesemakers and retailers

13 Mar 2020

FACE in itinere is the (very Latin!) name of the new programme lead by FACEnetwork thanks to the support of Erasmus+. Its main objective is to provide to current and prospective cheese and dairy makers and retailers a better access to trainings adapted to their needs.

This project will put a specific attention to open opportunities for experiences in real working situation (internship, working visits…) as essential complements to “classical” education.

The project will take place over 16 months (september 2019 to december 2020) with the following main actions:

  1. a web- based platform will be built to exchange offers/requests for internship and visits
  2. an online inventory of training courses will be achieved
  3. as a consequence of the two previous workstreams, an analysis of the specific strengths and weaknesses of the existing training system will be made. Where gaps are identified, the information will be used to formulate relevant working plans and future projects for the development of suitable courses

As all the countries of FACE will be involved, the project will provide a precise overview of the training offer in at least 14 different countries. It will constitute a step that will prepare a more ambitious project to be set up by the following years about adapted trainings in our sector.

In this goal, FACEnetwork will try to share its achievements also with other organisations specialized in the sector of education (vocational schools, universities…), during public information meetings planned at the end of the programme (november / december 2020).

Moreover, the web-based platform of exchanges which will be developed during the project will stay as a concrete tool for the long term: it will be available online and will make it easier for trainees or professionals to find internship and co-working all over Europe, in order to complete their education through practical experience.

All along the programme FACE in itinere, specific newsletters will be regularly diffused to the members of FACEnetwork.
