South Kerry Skillnet, along with the Irish Accommodation Services Institute (IASI) and Munster Technological University, Tralee have launched a national Accommodation Supervisory Management programme.

It is a free management development programme to aid post-pandemic recovery in the hospitality sector by training the unemployed in much sought-after skills, with the aim of finding them employment. Applications are now open for the programme, which is aimed at previous or potential accommodation managers and those who are unemployed with relevant experience in the industry.

The programme is funded through Skills Connect, an initiative from Skillnet Ireland, and was developed in partnership with enterprise, to enhance cross-sector employability and support those who have lost their jobs. The Accommodation Supervisory Management (Level 6 Special Purpose Award) will run online over a 12-week period commencing on September 27, for approximately two days a week (five hours a day).

South Kerry Skillnet Network Manager Aoife O’Reilly said the course will address skills gaps in the industry.

“The tourism and hospitality sectors continue to deal with the many challenges that COVID-19 has brought. This programme has been developed by South Kerry Skillnet as a response to requests from the hotel industry for a focused programme in Accommodation Supervisory Management. South Kerry Skillnet is delighted to offer this national online programme which will be providing management and supervisory training to the hospitality industry, giving businesses the tools to support their teams and get them ready for the recovery.”

Mary Rose Stafford Munster Technological University added that “At Munster Technological University we are conscious of the need to support affected sectors in responding to the pandemic".

"Retraining people for the ‘new normal’ is easily said and often difficult to implement. We look forward to working with South Kerry Skillnet to offer this online national Accommodation Supervisory Management programme. This is a practical and actionable programme that will help address a current need within the hospitality sector.”

To find out more about this programme or to view South Kerry Skillnet’s full range of programmes, please visit www.kerryskillnet.ie or call Aoife on 066 9762477.

Closing date for applications is September 13, and places are limited.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
