General Course Information
The NECTAR project aims to compensate the gap identified between the skills currently offered by cooks and chefs working in hospitals, residential care and homecare and those actually demanded by healthcare institutions, private service providers and final end users in order to play a pivotal role in Primary Food Care (PFC). Based on a “culinary/clinical integrated approach”, NECTAR will deliver an EU Occupational Profile and an EU Curriculum for Chef Gastro Engineering: the adaptability of the curriculum to different contexts and countries will be tested through the implementation of five pilot courses in Italy, Austria, Portugal and Belgium.
The NOTT course aims to train all the teachers involved in the NECTAR Pilot Courses to support them to implement innovative methods when addressing the new curriculum. The course content will be presented in English only.
