Go with Tourism and IHG Hotels & Resorts have partnered to bring free learning and upskilling opportunities to New Zealand’s tourism and hospitality workforce.
The IHG Skills Academy, a virtual learning platform, was launched in the United Kingdom last October and offers free online education, courses and opportunities for people looking to build their confidence, get employment ready and explore their career options in the sector.
As well as having access to global resources and learning modules, people who mention “Go with Tourism” during their registration will gain access to a New Zealand-specific ‘playlist’ of curated content.
Educating and upskilling the existing industry workers, and those hoping to kickstart their careers within the tourism sector, is a crucial factor in maintaining a successful and sustainable workforce. Go with Tourism is very excited to help IHG promote this wonderful platform across New Zealand.
The IHG Skills Academy has pledged to introduce the Skills Academy to secondary schools across the country, as well as encourage jobseekers to work on skills that will help them find employment. The initiative will also ask businesses to share and utilise the platform with their staff, and to promote tourism and hospitality learning and upskilling for everyone.
