Welcome to the eAcademy.This is a place, where tourism and hospitality professionals can get professional training.

Look around, we’re not limited by a physical classroom. It can be a remote village, at work on your lunch break, or at home. All you need is a mobile phone, email account, internet access and data. You can learn at your own pace. The eAcademy wants to make learning available to people who find it hard to access training. Research shows that people remember learning when it’s delivered in small bites. So the eAcademy got the learning experts together with tourism and hospitality professionals to create accessible, innovative ways of learning. The eAcademy opens doors to lifelong learning. The platform offers a range of learning options; with short courses for both managers and frontline staff. The eAcademy has benefits for students & employers. This is a blended learning environment. It combines online materials and interactions with more traditional methods. We have flexible learning options and experiences. There could be field exercises, videos, tutoring, webinars and online chats with industry pros. As students, we have some control over our time, place and pace of learning. The eAcademy offers a broad range of subjects.

You can enroll in courses that fit your needs and knowledge. The current program includes engaging courses on tour guiding, COVID-19 hygiene standards, resiliency, entrepreneurship and sustainability.

You can choose your own path to enhance your professional skills.

What do you gain from the eAcademy courses?

It’s a digital certificate. That’s how educators award achievement, learners stack their experiences and employers find the perfect match and upskill their teams. The digital badge is an online representation of a skill you’ve earned. Earners can combine multiple badges from different issuers to tell the complete story of their achievements both online and offline.

Badges can be displayed wherever earners want them on the web and share them for
employment. The badges have value because employers and businesses endorse and
accept the badges as proof of your achievement.

The eAcademy provides a platform for lifelong learning and your own pursuit of knowledge, for personal or professional reasons. It’s a place where professionals and businesses can develop employability and positive developments in their community.

We’re in a knowledge economy now. That means individuals and organisations must engage in continuous learning to be adaptable and flexible for whatever the future brings. For me, the eAcademy is time well spent to focus my career and take me further to achieve my goals.

So brothers and sisters, join me and start your lifelong learning now.
