Hotels aid plan to help find careers in hospitality
SEVEN local hotels are to offer work experience places to people signing up for a new course aimed at helping them find careers in the hospital industry.
They are Kelly's Resort Hotel and Spa, the Farmers' Kitchen, Clayton White's, the Ferrycarrig Hotel, the Talbot Hotel, Whitford House Hotel and the Riverbank House Hotel.
The 20-week training programme is part of the Back to Education Initiative programme being run by the Waterford and Wexford Education Board with accreditation through Quality Qualifications Ireland (QQI).
It is aimed at those who left school without a Leaving Certificate or those receiving social welfare payments.
Delivered over two half days and two full days, it will include restaurant service, customer service, work experience, HACCP training, manual handling and basic first aid.
It aims to equip learners with the skills and knowledge needed to work effectively within the hospitality industry and to have the confidence to use these skills in their daily lives.
