Talent programme aims to rebuild tourism sector

Marc Crothall: ‘a hugely positive move forward’

A new Scottish Government funded training programme aims to develop future leaders in the tourism industry as it recovers from the pandemic.

The Tourism and Hospitality Talent Development Programme will be delivered by the Hospitality Industry Trust Scotland (HIT) and the Scottish Tourism Alliance (STA).

It forms part of the strategy for recovery from Covid-19 and the lockdown which has devastated the industry.

The virtual programme was one of the key recommendations of the Tourism Task Force which provided independent recommendations for Scottish Ministers and the UK Government.

There will be 975 places on the programme which is open to anyone over the age of 16 working in the Scottish tourism and hospitality industry.
