Summary: The main problem of Secondary School for Tourism and Catering in Zabljak was the organization and performance of practical trainings for its students. This kind of classes (practical trainings), as well as summer internship used to be organized in hotels and private catering facilities under poor conditions, which has given poor results.
Having in mind that without effective practical training carried out in accordance with the planned curriculum it was impossible to obtain qualified human resources needed for tourism development, the problem has started to be addressed.
By implementation of this project i.e. reconstruction of the restaurant “Duga” conditions were created for carrying out practical training in accordance with the secondary school curricula for waiters and chefs. Upon graduating from secondary school the students will acquire qualifications and skills necessary to become competitive in the labor market, whereby the problem with the lack of qualified catering technicians in this area was solved. Furthermore, the project offered possibility for education of all age groups, as well as additional education and prequalification of unemployed persons to actively participate in improving quality of life in the community.
Graduate catering technicians will offer services to local community in this restaurant, and will have an opportunity to complete a course on preparation of national meals from this region, as well as to obtain additional qualifications or undergo prequalification.
This restaurant provided fresh meals during working hours to local companies and primary school staff. In addition to that, local caterers and hotel keepers will be able to hire qualified and practically trained staff from their community, and it will not be necessary to look for the workforce in the neighboring cities.
In addition, through organization of business lunches and seminars, support will be offered to local businesses and country tourism development.
Being a representative one, this facility made an impact on development of tourism and catering, and partly on agriculture. In a practical sense, it contributed to development of strategic branches of economy of Zabljak Municipality (tourism, catering and agriculture).
Opening of the restaurant “Duga“ resulted in creation of 4 new jobs.
