UK: Trade body UKHospitality has partnered with CPL Learning to create an online training platform for those furloughed due to the global pandemic.

The programme, known as UKH Pathway, will provide access to learning, personal development and wellbeing resources.

Kate Nicholls, UKHospitality CEO said: “Hospitality has been one of the hardest-hit sectors and our fantastic team members have, in many cases, been furloughed during the crisis. UKH Pathway gives them 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.”

Open for registration now, the programme tailors its courses to various hospitality skills, including various products. It also actively tracks the progress of its users.

CPL Learning CEO Jamie Campbell said: “We recognise that we need to continue supporting hospitality team members during this challenging scenario and provide them with a way to stay connected to our fantastic industry. The UKH Pathway is our first step in this process.”

UKHospitality has been at the forefront of managing the coronavirus crisis. The group pushed for greater assistance to the industry following Rishi Sunak’s initial budget, and last week partnered with Caterer.com to launch a redeployment hub for unemployed workers.
