Coronavirus: New online training courses available for hospitality workers

TRADE group UK Hospitality and training firm CPL Learning have launched a new online learning programme for furloughed hospitality workers.

UKH Pathway provides online courses and material on wellbeing, product knowledge, personal development and hospitality; courses are free for hospitality staff to access during the ‘lockdown’ period.

Kate Nicholls, chief executive of UK Hospitality, said: “Hospitality has been one of the hardest-hit sectors and our fantastic team members have, in many cases, been furloughed during the crisis.

“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.”

CPL Learning’s Jamie Campbell said: “This is the first step of something that we believe will be an essential resource for the industry beyond the challenges we face right now, supporting career development across the industry.”
