From January-March 2019, a European survey was conducted in the 8 partner countries of the NTG Project (Spain, UK, Hungary, Netherlands, Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, Ireland). Subsequently, an analysis of the survey, exploring the skills gaps per skills sets type, was finished in May 2019. The total sample of the survey on a European level was 1404.
In this Country Survey Report, trends and findings are listed on how the five tourism sectors, type and size of the business is responding to the skill sets, highs, lows, current and future level of proficiency in digital, environmental, social and soft skills sets. Furthermore, explanations are given on how businesses are accessing training, with an evaluation as to why businesses respond as they have and what may be contributing factors. An overview of the gaps in the current and future level of proficiency in environmental, social and digital levels of proficiency across the 5 sectors is given.
