Advantage Conference 2019

Advantage launches educational Apprenticeship Solutions

Seizing its moment among travel professionals at the Cadiz-based conference, Advantage Travel Partnership unveiled plans to launching a series of Apprenticeship Solutions designed to train and accommodate the next generation of travel experts.

Created in partnership with Travilearn and TrainingStations, the solutions will incorporate a mixture of one-to-one coaching through classroom teaching and self-study online learning modules to provide top-quality training to Advantage members.

The news was announced during the conference by Neil Amorgie, global product director at Advantage. Speaking of the course, he explained: “This initiative is the first of its kind in business travel and follows membership demands for quality staff and training.

“The solution with Travilearn will allow a tailored approach that will suit out members’ need,” he continued.

Likewise, Paula Lacey, Advantage’s group commercial and membership director, said: “We are very excited to be working with these partners on this new training scheme. We felt that TrainingStation and Travilearn were the best fit for quality, as well as their understanding of the needs of our members.

“The leisure and business travel industry are exciting industries to work in and we are passionate about helping our members find, train and retain the next stars of these travel sectors.”

This comes after the company launched its e-learning solutions at the end of last year.

This service will be available to members in England from next month (June) onwards.
