The new Tourism, Hospitality & Events (THE) programme is well under way at Borders College and is proving a popular choice for supervisors, managers and people with aspirations for a career in this sector.
The programme is currently being offered via a partnership between Borders College and SRUC, with the specific aim to support the economic recovery of establishments within Tourism, Hospitality and Events sectors in Scotland.
We caught up with Borders College Lecturer Viv Key to talk about the course, who said:
“With the current demand for domestic tourism soaring, it is important for those working within the sector to have comprehensive tourism training. Our aim is to aid Scotland’s readiness for the post-lockdown recovery.
“THE Programme is a collection of high-quality, flexible courses that are delivered online so that students can fit their studies around their busy jobs. We have 13 students on the programme, which is specifically aimed at those already working within the tourism, hospitality and events sectors. It provides a platform for upskilling and for those returning to work after furlough, helping to get them job-ready.”
