Tourism HR Canada has now held over 50 sessions with industry professionals from across the country to review individual skills—or competencies—required across tourism, as part of the Future Skills Framework project.
We now have a fully validated framework, marking an important milestone in the project.
These individual competencies will be the ‘building blocks’ for a wide variety of occupational charts: a comprehensive set of skills that define a particular occupation. These charts will form the backbone of new National Occupational Standards, upon which all our Emerit certification and training is based.
We are now inviting industry professionals across a wide range of occupations to join us in reviewing these occupational charts on Zoom from 1:00 PM to 3.30 PM Eastern Time.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have experience in the following occupations and want to join us on the listed date:
- Nov 23: Tour Guide & Tour Director
- Nov 25: Front Desk Agent
- Dec 4: Tourism Visitor Information Counsellor
- Dec 8: Housekeeping Room Attendant & Director of Housekeeping
- Dec 10: Kitchen Helper, Line Cook, Food Counter Attendant
- Dec 17: Food and Beverage Manager
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
