Po prvi puta održana stručna edukacija za “concierge za osobe s invaliditetom”

first_imgFive people were educated through this program of education of the hotel concierge for people with disabilities, which was conducted by the Uristica catering school Split in cooperation with the Hotel Cornaro in Split.  About 10% of travelers, tourists in the world are people with some kind of disability, but in the hotel industry their specific needs are not adequately recognized.  Slaven Škrabić, professor at the Split school and project manager The Fit4Work project involved 45 unemployed people and the implementation lasted 20 months. In order to realize it well, 12 teachers from TUŠ, two mentors from “Bluesun – Hotel Company Tučepi”, two mentors from the hotel “Cornaro” and a representative of the association for inclusion “Lastavice” participated. ” It is very important that tourism workers think about the needs of people with disabilities. For example, when a hotel guest requests a personalized tour of Diocletian’s Palace, the hotel’s Concierge services contact an outside agency, a guide greets the guest at the agreed location and the tour begins. In this case, Concierge services can not only leave the guest to the guide, but will meet with him beforehand and together determine the route of the tour, taking care that the guest is picked up by an adequate vehicle, to go to locations where it is not too crowded and to there will be no architectural barriers on the way ” explained the project manager Slaven Škrabić, a professor at the school in Split. Tijekom studijskog putovanja u London mentori su imali priliku vidjeti kako funkcionira tamošnji sustav, dodaje Škrabić, te naglašava kako je u Engleskoj svijest o važnosti zapošljavanja osoba s invaliditetom viša, poduzetnici nemaju olakšice već zapošljavanje osoba s invaliditetom shvaćaju kao ulaganje u društvo i upravo je to razlog zbog kojeg je neophodno ulagati u podizanje svijesti o važnosti zapošljavanja ranjivih skupina kako bi s godinama ona i u našem društvu porasla.  Praktični dio edukacije za četiri smjera odnosno barmen / barista te pomoćni konobar, kuhar i slastičar polaznici projekta odradili su u Bluesun hotelu Alga u Tučepima. “Naši dojmovi su odlični. Bilo nam je zadovoljstvo sudjelovati u inkluziji ranjivih skupina na tržište rada. Polaznicima smo prezentirali hotelski dio usluge i potrebne stručne vještine kako bi stekli direktno iskustvo rada u realnom, svakodnevnom poslovanju. Sudjelovanje u ovakvim projektima tvrtkama nije važno isključivo u kontekstu društveno odgovornog poslovanja već je to općenito prednost za cijelo hrvatsko gospodarstvo” pojasnio je Filip Benjak, voditelj razvoja karijera u Bluesun hotelima. But most importantly, the Fit4Work project ultimately resulted in employment in the sector for more than half of the total 45 attendees, and within a few months.  Hotel concierge training for people with disabilities held for the first time in Croatia For this reason, in the School of Tourism and Hospitality Split this year realized a project, Fit4Work designed by the school and aimed at training long-term unemployed people over 54, people with disabilities and young people who were not previously associated with hospitality and tourism. The implemented programs were related to the professions of assistant chef, board waiter, board confectioner, bartender / barista and one very specific specialization – hotel concierge for people with disabilities.  “Neophodno je da bar jedan hotelski djelatnik bude educiran o ovoj temi. Edukacije za conciergea za osobe s invaliditetom pruža vrlo konkretna znanja s brojnim primjerima iz prakse i nastavljamo je provoditi u našoj školi” zaključio je voditelj projekta Slaven Škrabić  Cover photo: Pixabay.comlast_img read more
