Minds into Matters es el nombre que lleva el presente proyecto europeo cuya idea principal está orientada en incrementar y potenciar las competencias de empleabilidad, sostenibilidad  e innovación en el sector turístico, mediante un proceso que abarcará dois años de trabajo (2016-2018), auspiciado por los programas Europeos Erasmus + en el ámbito de la educación de adultos y la educación no formal.
Tenerife Job Training, como miembro socio del proyecto en representación de España, ha organizado el primer Training Mentors Seminar en Tenerife durante el mes de Marzo  2017. Hemos diseñado un calendario de operatividad y planes de trabajo consensuado que nos ha llevado a mostrar a los participantes diversas empresas y entidades de la isla muy relacionadas con el turismo sostenible.

Los seis países participantes en el proyecto, Islandia, Polonia, República Checa, Lituania, Estonia y España, analizaremos, diseñaremos herramientas sostenibles para empresas del sector turístico conscientes en la elaboración de manuales de operaciones para la mejora de los procesos operativos tanto como la optimización y calidad de las diferentes áreas y departamentos. En este mismo orden de cosas el proyecto contempla la formación de la figura del mentor para que puedan llevar a cabo el seguimiento y control de los procesos a implementar.
La creación del  “The Book of Business”, será el  manual de operaciones que reunirá la operativa, calidad, profesionalidad  y aprendizaje, convirtiéndose en una herramienta clave para la empresa turística.
La formación de mentores nos sitúa en un ámbito que Erasmus + está potenciando en su nueva etapa 2014-2020, la educación de adultos y la educación no formal. Bajo el lema “long life learning”, concebimos un elemento potenciador de la empleabilidad  y profesionalidad en la empresa turística del siglo XXI.

Cada país participante en este proyecto seleccionará una o 2 empresas turísticas locales para trabajar conjuntamente durante los dos años del proyecto, asignando un mentor para cada una de ellas. La formación del mentor es clave y objetivo fundamental del proyecto. En el caso de Tenerife, las dos empresas turísticas seleccionadas para participar en el proyecto son:

Hovima a La Pinta:    http://www.hovima-hotels.com/es/hoteles-en-tenerife/hovima-la-pinta.html

Casas Alberto: http://www.casasalberto.com/

Desde Tenerife Job Training hemos seleccionado dos tipos de empresas turísticas de diferentes mercados turísticos y con infraestructuras muy dispares. Hovima La Pinta, un referene en la zona costera de Costa Adeje y a punto de entrar en una transformación profunda que le va a dar una nueva imagen. Y Casas Alberto, un pequeño alojamiento rural con encanto situado en San Miguel de Abona. Con ambas empresa vamos a desarrolar la herramienta de turismo sostenible que nuestro poryecto abandera, Th Book of Business, con la figura de los mentores en cada una de las empresas.

 

English:

The main goal of Minds into Matters project is to try out and develop a sustainable training tools for SME in the tourist rural business – called Book of Business or BoB.

The core idea in this project is that in the business owners head’s (Mind) – there is a lot of knowledge’s – which needed to be visualized ( into Mattes) for others for future development and training. By making his knowledge’s visual – and the process of working with that, create not only a BoB – but it also builds up competence and professionalism in each businesses, and by doing so this work might be the pathway to a more formal learning in the future.

BoB is a visual business tool – especially designed for each business to help the business owner to have something visual in their hands to be able to train their staff in shorter time. By doing this they also have in one place all the info about developing of the business, the business concept, the business etic, the core of the business and the business values as well.

BoB has proved to be an easy sustainable tools to work within couple of Icelandic pilots project.

Iceland – The project leader

Step by Step is a research and training organization, established in 1987 by Hansína B Einarsdóttir cand.polit and Dr. Herdís D Baldvindóttir in their university years.

The organisations has 30 years of experience in project managing and training, in different areas and within very different fields.

Our major emphasize has been on VET and WBL for adults, working with and for all kinds of companies. Over the years we have been involved in many research programs within the field of adult training and learning with the aim of having people to understand the importance of life long learning.

We have been managing several big training projects for example for airlines, shipping companies, banks and many official organizations, as well as working with small innovative enterprises. We have comprehensive and even unusual experience by using all kind of field and action research (like having to sail all over in Europe and USA to learn about the fascinating live at sea) in order to design the right approach for our customers.

 

We have undertaken and managed several different projects, both on local and governmental level, and all with the aim of new job creations as well as competence building in the rural areas of Iceland. the company has been in a leading position in its work by designing inside training and peer-to-peer programs for diverse companies. The company has been developing over the years and uses innovative approach in its training and in its implementation of knowledge to enhance skills for adults’ learners, both skilled and unskilled. In the years 2012 – 2014 we did an extensive survey among tourism companies in

Iceland (we interviewed more than 100 regional companies) where among other things, we discussed product development, quality control, management and staff training within the companies.

 

Among the things noted was a great interest from the companies in having specifically designed educational and training material that would be sustainable so that each company would own their own material and hence could teach and train within their own workplace.

This is the foundation of our project Mind into Matter – making BoB.

Hansína B. Einarsdóttir is the managing director of the company and has been responsible for carrying out many rural research projects as well building up a boutique hotel in rural Iceland (www.hotelglymur.is).

Dr Herdís D. Baldvinsdóttir worked for almost 7 years for the Nordic Council of ministers as the Coordinator for Consumer Research in the Nordic Countries. The main objectives in that job was to develop and support research networks and their activities, promote dialog and cooperation between relevant actors to foster consumer research of relevance to consumer policy and to broaden the interaction between consumer researchers and policy-makers in government, agencies, and organizations.
