Developing a European Network for the Education and Training of Chefs and Cooks Working In Health and Care Settings
Based on a “culinary-clinical integrated approach”, the NECTAR Project, funded by Erasmus+ Programme, has delivered a Chef Gastro Engineering (CGE) EU Occupational Profile and a learning outcome-oriented and modular EU Curriculum for the training of this new qualification. The efficacy of these results has been tested through five pilots in Italy, Portugal, Belgium and Austria. The results of the piloting action underlined the flexibility and adaptability of the Curriculum to different contexts and countries, as well as its effectiveness in filling the identified skills gap.
NECTAR partners are developing a European Network for the Education and Training of Chefs and Cooks Working In Health and Care Settings to promote learning from the project and the wider adoption of education and training for chefs and cooks working in health care settings. To launch this initiative a dedicated webinar has been organised by the NECTAR project partners on 22nd September 2023 at 15:00.
The webinar will be of particular interest to those working for Vocational Education Training Providers; Regional Regulatory Bodies for Education and Training; and Health and Care providers.
