A new Global Certification is being launched this week with the purpose of recognizing the skills of those employed or recently unemployed in Ireland’s hospitality industry.
Your Future. Your Skills is a collaborative project between lead partner Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board and Dublin and Dun Laoighaire ETB, Kilkenny and Carlow ETB and City and Guilds.
The Global Certification allows those working in hospitality to gain a professional recognition for their skills and experience against an international benchmark, in the form of a digital badge.
Digital Badges are the latest technology in skills certification, they provide a secure way to showcase achievements online, through a single click.
The Global Certification is fully funded by Solas. There is no cost to the applicant.
