More Training on the Cards for Tourism Sector

The Tourism Division says it is planning more training programmes to boost service in the sector.

It says as part of its human resource development in the tourism sector for 2019/2020, the Tourism Division will engage with local stakeholders to deliver training programmes in the areas of Customer Service; Housekeeping, for the tourist accommodation sector; and Sites and Attractions.

Other areas to be covered are Management; Social Media Management and Presentation & Packaging of Souvenir Items.

This follows the recent staging of a seminar for taxi and tour operators.

Director of Tourism, Warren Solomon in welcoming the training, said it was extremely positive, which augurs well for a unified tour and taxi body, and ultimately, enhanced service delivery to visitors.

The Tourism Division says improvement of standards is an important element of its mandate and is one of the key areas in the recently approved Tourism Strategy.

The seminar was another step in ensuring that the sector is equipped with the necessary skills to deliver memorable experiences.
