Restaurant & Hospitality Skillnet has announced the launch of two new online training programmes designed to help hospitality businesses become more efficient and profitable.
The e-learning programmes were developed alongside industry expert Agility Hospitality to give restaurant and hospitality managers and supervisors the opportunity to upskill digitally.
The initiative aims to help hospitality businesses to improve processes, labour forecasting, and scheduling methods while reducing costs.
Restaurant & Hospitality Skillnet noted that the programmes offer curricula that cover the core principles of Creating Continuous Improvements – including project selection, process monitoring, data analysis and installing changes – and the fundamentals of Labour Forecasting and Scheduling, including how to track productivity and manage a schedule forecast.
The new online programmes include microlearning multimedia modules that are designed to be completed in just a few minutes. The modules include trainer-led videos, images, text, and downloadable documents.
Restaurant & Hospitality Skillnet was created to grow Ireland’s hospitality sector by ensuring that the skills and training needs of member businesses are adequately resourced.
The network develops and delivers bespoke upskilling solutions for business owners, managers, chefs, and front-of-house staff members.
“Skillnet Ireland is committed to supporting businesses across the Irish economy, including those operating [in] the highly competitive domestic hospitality sector, through the provision of subsidised upskilling programmes,” said Michelle Guthrie, Skillnet Ireland development advisor.
“Restaurant & Hospitality Skillnet plays a key role in meeting the growing demand within the sector for concise, focused and accessible learning solutions.
“The business network’s new e-learning programmes will allow hospitality businesses to remain competitive and grow.”
