Industry trade body UKHospitality has teamed up with CPL Learning to create an online training resource hub for furloughed employees during the Covid-19 pandemic.
UKH Pathway will be available for staff across the hospitality sector for free throughout the closure period, and will provide access to learning, wellbeing and personal development resources across a range of subjects.
Features will include mental and physical wellbeing resources, assets aimed at developing skills and competencies, and learning content tailored specifically to hospitality skills.
“Hospitality has been one of the hardest-hit sectors and our fantastic team members have, in many cases, been furloughed during the crisis,” said Kate Nicholls, UK Hospitality CEO.
“UKH Pathway gives them the opportunity to learn new skills and develop their personal abilities. We hope that, not only will this provide employees with an outlet, it will mean we are in the best possible position to thrive once again when the crisis passes, and venues begin to reopen.”
“We recognise that we need to continue supporting hospitality team members during this challenging scenario and provide them with a way to stay connected to our fantastic industry,” added Jamie Campbell, CPL Learning CEO.
“The UKH Pathway is our first step in this process. It will allow individuals to further their personal development, clearly showing the commitment we, as a sector, have in developing people.”
