The Academic Committee of the International School of Rural Tourism, Enturna, has met at its headquarters in Guadix in order to make the Activity Plan 2014, which includes a “notable” increase both in training activities as the positions offered to students.

The Academic Committee will approve the final plan Enturna next 18 January. The project under consideration has been developed with the experience gained in the first year of operation of the School and after collecting suggestions and user reviews.

Enturna continue to provide classroom courses, but will make a greater commitment to training to facilitate online learning. Also, increase the means to address the two main barriers identified, such as gaps in language and the need for action aimed at very specific tourism segments.
