Loughlinstown training Centre, part of the Dublin Dun Laoghaire ETB, is currently recruiting for their new Local and National Tour Guiding programme. This exciting new programme will offer persons seeking employment an excellent opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge and receive support to secure employment within the Tourism industry.
Loughlinstown Training Centre has been working closely with the training company Swilly Group and local employers to develop programmes that will deliver jobs in Tourism. Recently developed programmes include Festival Management and Sound Production Management and Local and National Tour Guiding. All of these programmes incorporate a healthy mix of theoretical learning, practical skills training and a period of work placement with a local employer. The programmes are ideal for learners wishing to follow a career in tourism.
Feedback from learners who have completed the Local and National Tour Guiding Course has been very positive thus far.
“I thought I knew Dublin and Ireland already, but since starting this course I have learnt an enormous amount of new information about the city and country”, Mike Smith.
“Doing this course is essential for anyone contemplating entering the tourism/hospitality sector as it contains the necessary tools and information to start or further your career”, Gillian Murphy.
“I am delighted with the course in Tour Guiding. It is teaching me so much in a short space of time”, Sheila Daly.
Derek Elders, Loughlinstown Training Centre, said “We have been liaising with employers in Dublin to understand their specific employment needs”. “We feel that our tourism programmes will provide the learners with the skills and competences that employers want but also a number of industry specific qualifications recognised by employers”. Derek continued, “The learners will also receive job seeking support from a qualified jobs coach and we are very confident that there will be a high job placement from this programme”.
Courses are scheduled to start in South Dublin in April. Places are limited to 20 per course and anyone interested is advised to register their interest early to avoid disappointment.
