HOSPITALITY workers stuck at home during the lockdown now have the option to undertake free training, thanks to industry charity HIT Scotland.

Working with one of its sponsors, technology provider Criton, the charity has launched a free-to-use app which provides links to a range of self-development tools and resources.

The materials cover a wide range of topics, from people management to meditation, and will be updated regularly.

HIT Scotland chief executive, David Cochrane, said: “In these different and challenging times when we would normally be getting the industry together at our events around the country, plus delivering scholarships locally, nationally and internationally, we all find ourselves in a unique situation which is having a major impact on our industry globally.

“The app will allow our sector to access self-development tools and information that enable those who wish to do so to learn during lockdown.

“As with all HIT initiatives, this project has been possible thanks to the efforts of the industry and its support organisations working together for the benefit and advancement of our sector.  It is heartening to see this generosity of spirit continuing in such challenging times.”
