Detailed description of project Back

The Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg finances and implements development projects in Nicaragua since 1990 through its implementing agency for development cooperation, Lux-Development. Key sectors for intervention are water and sanitation, education, health and post-hurricane reconstruction.

During the last years, the tourism sector has been growing at a steady pace, becoming a steady source of hard currency for the country. To maintain this growth, it’s indispensable to improve the quality and quantity of tourist services. In order to support the development of the sector, the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg decided to finance the construction and equipment of a hotel and tourism training centre. The project also foresees the training of the teaching, management and administrative staff, curriculum design based on the skills needed in the priority sub-sectors (hotel & restaurant business), design and production of didactic materials, and the set-up of a system of official recognition of the diplomas obtained.

The training will focus on those professions most in demand such as receptionist, person responsible for reservations, cashier, waiter, cook, etc. The students of the National Hotel School will be people already active in the sector, people looking for employment in the sector, and owners of small and medium enterprises in the sector. There is also the possibility to sign agreements with universities so that the students of the latter could benefit from practical classes at the School that the universities cannot offer.

The objective of this mission is to undertake the intermediate evaluation of the project.
