To help the country’s tourism sector revive from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, PATA Nepal Chapter has partnered with Typsy to enable members and industry stakeholders of the entire tourism fraternity of Nepal with a three-month Free Premium access to Typsy with unlimited users from the respective tourism and hospitality businesses, schools and organisations.
The memorandum of understanding for this collaboration titled ‘Hospitality Training - The Road to Recovery and Beyond!’ was signed by Suresh Singh Budal, Chief Executive Officer of PATA Nepal Chapter, and Tony Bolf, Typsy Regional Sales Director (APAC), on July 12.
Typsy is an extensive online learning platform including courses by some of the world's best hospitality and tourism professionals. It provides online video learning content specific to the hospitality industry. Its growing library of courses and lessons is video-based and is always led by world-class instructors. The platform is offering unlimited access to over 1,000 online lessons related to Compliance, Business, Management, Beverage, Culinary, Hotel, and Service.
The Netflix-style library has been designed to encourage hospitality professionals or avid learners to develop skills, build credentials, grow confidence, and discover passions. Learners can have instant access to their lessons and courses which include downloadable resources, quizzes, and certificates globally endorsed by the Institute of Hospitality.
Khem Lakai, Treasurer and HCD Coordinator of PATA Nepal Chapter, informed that the collaboration with Typsy is to support PATA Nepal's Human Capital Development (HCD) mission, as well as support the tourism recovery initiatives of Nepal at large. He added, "Micro-learning through the self-directed learning method is empowering to the new generation. So, this is the time to focus on reskilling and learning and strengthening our preparedness for tourism recovery, and our collaboration with Typsy will support our mission of rapid, robust, and responsible tourism recovery in Nepal."
Interested tourism and hospitality businesses, schools, and organisations in Nepal will have to register by end of September to access this privilege; and a representative from Typsy will be in touch via email with their account login details within a week of registration. The duration of Free Premium access is for three months from the date of the Typsy premium account activation.
