South West Gnó Skillnet in conjunction with The Institute of Technology Tralee is to deliver Free Training for Job Seekers in Bar & Restaurant Services in response to industry demand and following on from a highly successful 2014 programme.
Following on from the very successful 2014 programme and from further consultation with local hospitality industry representatives, this innovative and very relevant programme has been designed to give job seekers the real skills necessary to gain employment in the hospitality sector.
The programme has been further developed to provide a recognisable and professional qualification along with the practical skills set that employers are looking for; this programme aims to support applicants in finding meaningful work in the hospitality and catering sector. In fact, most participants on the 2014 programme were offered employment.
The Programme will incorporate 12 lecture days over 8 weeks at the Institute of Technology Tralee and a work placement will be provided in a selected hotel in Tralee/Killarney area.
Such was the success of the 2014 programme, a number of Hotels in the Kerry area have already expressed keen interest in facilitating work placements and South West Gnó Skillnet would like to invite other hotels to join the programme.
