Fast Track named finalist

AccorHotels New Zealand has been named as a finalist in the New Zealand Tourism Awards for its training and education programme Fast Track Partnership Programme.

 

The programme provides hospitality industry training and employment opportunities for Work and Income clients 18 years and up. The programme runs in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development, Tourism Industry Association and competitor hotels in the regions and is designed to work with participants from within the community who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

 

Now in its 2nd year the Fast Track Partnership Programme is currently running in Rotorua, and again in October, and in September it will run in Christchurch with new hotel partners. The New Zealand Tourism Awards winners will be announced at an event in Christchurch on 6 September.
