  2. Already employed people in the hotel and catering sector with low or no qualifications. Target group

  3. The 13.7% of the workforce belongs to the catering and hotel sector. • 4,000 companies make up the sector in our region. • 90% are small firms with no more than nine workers. Many of them are family companies where the owner is the main worker of the establishment. This also means that few managers do businesses or managing training, because they do not have free time. Context in Cantabria

  5. Training timetables • Some employees work in shifts or work late evenings and it is often difficult to gather a group of students to the same timetable. • Companies seldom allow their employees to train during working hours. • Crisis: many unemployed people without specific qualification in catering are working in this sector for being the only job found. This is why so many catering workers are no qualified. Problems
