NTG Final Conference: The transition of green, digital and social skills development
On the 9th of June, the NTG Alliance hosts the final online conference ‘The Next Tourism Generation: The transition of green, digital and social skills development’. This conference will be divided into four main modules; collaborative framework on skills development and the NTG Blueprint, innovation in Education, Skills Training, and curriculum development, assessing skills gaps and future skills needs in tourism and the road ahead on skills in tourism – Pact for Skills and PANTOUR.
During the coming years, opportunities will arise to invest and create quality job opportunities in the tourism sector. The challenge is that to support the expected growth and to achieve tourism sector competitiveness and sustainability, European countries need the right tourism human capital that meets current and future market demands and enhances the competitiveness and sustainability of tourism destinations in a more digital world. When planning the development of tourism human capital and skills development, it is important to note that the skills needs of the tourism sector today are different from what the needs of 2030 will be. We will see the emergence of new types of tourism businesses, products, services, and professions, requiring different competencies, knowledge, and personality attributes. Meeting the new demands will require concerted efforts and the Next Tourism Generation is taking a leading role in addressing emerging skills needs.
