Vocational training as supercharger for tourism destination development
As GreenDreamAcademy our aim is to use tourism destination development as a driver for local job creation and economic growth as well as poverty reduction. Capacity building is an important requirement for all this to happen.
So this our service philosophy:
Proud and good educated people are at the heart of tourism business. More then being trained as a servant they are the hosts of a destination and ambassadors of their area. The experiences we craft, the level of service we train, the educational partners we work with, the connections we build are only possible based on a deep commitment. Deliver WOW through service
GreenDreamAcademy (GDA) developes en implements vocational training.
The process starts with gaining insight in the knowledge gaps. Based on the knowledge gap we advise organizations on possible training development programs to meet the local needs. The next step is the development and implementation of the customized training formats.
Within the development of tourism destination GDA recognizes major challenges as it comes to sustainable, good standard and reliable tourism supply and value chains. GDA’s aim is to identify, assess and develop the value chains necessary for the development of tourism destinations. Having sustainable, good standard and reliable tourism supply and value chains, in upcoming markets, is a necessity to realize this development. At the same time these ‘chains’ form a challenge. In early stages of tourism project development it’s important to identify the different chains of the project necessary to successfully realize a sustainable development of the project and area in which it’s developed. It needs a professional and committed approach to establish these reliable chains.
Capacity building means strengthening the abilities, knowledge and skills of individuals to improve their living standards and opportunities for the future. Unfortunately, in upcoming markets, an education on tourism and hospitality is not physically within reach of everybody. Besides the physical distance to education, gaps between knowledge supply and demand exist.
