This year, ABTA’s seminar will focus on identifying the skills needed for the future of the travel industry and plugging the gaps. Where are the likely skills gaps for the travel and tourism workforce in the short, medium and long-term? What will future jobs look like? What changes should you be making to your workforce and your curriculum?
Now is the time to focus on skills and talent development in the travel and tourism industry. New regulations, technologies, and customer expectations have changed the shape of the workforce. The types of skills that employees need are rapidly changing too. Many are predicting a talent shortage and post-Brexit recruitment challenges ahead, it’s crucial to look at ways to develop, attract and retain talent.
Attend to understand how travel and tourism businesses, education providers and government can work together to address the skills gaps to meet employer’s demands and to compete with other industries for the best talent. Learn about the impact of the Tourism Sector Deal, the Immigration Bill and Brexit on recruitment and retention. Discuss ways to promote the industry as an attractive place to work and innovative forms of training provision to meet industry needs.
Take part in interactive panel discussions and round-table discussions designed to bring education providers and employers together to discuss key issues and find solutions. Don’t miss this opportunity to help build the talent pipeline to ensure the future of our industry.
