Report reveals need for more skilled tourism workers

Posted on 02/08/2017 by

Thousands of additional skilled tourism workers will be needed by 2020, a report has revealed.

An additional 200,000 workers will be needed in the service sector (which includes tourism) by 2020, a report commissioned by At Your Service Aotearoa has revealed.

At Your Service Aotearoa is an organisation created to draw attention to the skills shortage in New Zealand’s services sector – or, as the website reads, “to issue a call to arms over mounting skills’ shortages”.

Tourism is one of the industries in need of skilled workers, especially as visitor numbers to New Zealand continue to grow.

This is positive news for anyone considering studying towards a tourism qualification, as it suggests that their skills will be in high demand upon graduation.

Each of these qualifications can be achieved via distance learning from anywhere in New Zealand. Study From Home students also have the option of studying part-time or full-time.

As the At Your Service Aotearoa report reveals, New Zealand is in need of skilled tourism workers – so now could be an ideal time to gain a formal qualification and enter the tourism workforce.

Study From Home graduates have embarked on exciting careers around New Zealand. You can read some of their success stories below.
