Folder Women Entrepreneurs in Rural Tourism-WERT

Folder administration: Rosaleen Courtney

The 'Women Entrepreneurs in Rural Tourism' project, or WERT for short, is a collaborative partnership between eight training institutions and networks from six countries across Europe. The project is supported by the European Union through the Leonardo da Vinci programme, aimed at improving the vocational education systems of Europe.

The project aims to meet the needs and build the skills of women entrepreneurs involved in rural tourism and crafts and to improve the quality of training provided by the vocational education sector.
The WERT training programme developed within this pilot initiative is aimed to help the following groups:
  • Women entrepreneurs involved in rural tourism, crafts and food production
  • Women who wish to enter the sector in order to become economically active and independent
  • Vocational training providers to help women entrepreneurs develop the required business skills e.g. Management, Information Technology and Marketing

The WERT training course will help women entrepreneurs across Europe to build new skills and jobs in rural economies. For more information on the activities visit the project website at or visit our Facebook page
