Virtual pop-up competition event

To support the aims and objectives of the Cooking for the future (CORE) project we organised a virtual pop-up competition event in April 2021.

The aim of the event was to design and execute a virtual pop-up competition event where students from partner countries together could gain entrepreneurial skills. Hosting the virtual pop-up competition event was an innovative way to increase student participation in work-based learning and give a strong support for the use of the European level framework for VET in the hospitality field.

At the same time the event gave students the opportunity to showcase their culinary skills and passion for cooking. Simultaneously students shared and developed their working skills and promoted their personal branding skills. It also improved student’s international competences and language skills through real life experience.

This project developed cooperation between culinary vocational schools and colleges and working life in European countries in the catering field in Finland, Estonia, Ireland and Spain.

The CORE- project was co-funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme.
