UKHospitality and learning and development provider CPL Learning have announced the launch of UKH Pathway, an online training platform for furloughed hospitality team members.
The platform will be free to use while hospitality businesses remain closed due to the coronavirus crisis and will provide access to "learning, wellbeing and personal development resources" for furloughed employees. The platform's aim is to continue to support hospitality team members during the current challenging and unusual circumstances and offer a way to stay connected to the industry.
The e-learning courses by CPL Learning will provide employees with opportunities to develop their skills across a "diverse range of subjects" with an initial range of courses and content focusing on four areas: wellbeing; product; personal development; and hospitality. Users will be able to access a library of knowledge and keep a record of their achievements online.
UKHospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls said: "UKH Pathway is a hugely valuable resource for hospitality employees looking to hone their skills and broaden their knowledge-base. Hospitality has been one of the hardest-hit sectors and our fantastic team members have, in many cases, been furloughed during the crisis.
Nicholls went on to say that the new resource will give employees 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."
Jamie Campbell, chief operating officer at CPL Learning, added: "This is the first step of something that we believe will be an essential resource beyond the challenges we face right now, supporting career development across the industry."
