The PG Tops group has identified a total mismatch between the growing tourism industry needs and the available skill sets – which is unimaginable in a country with 50% youth unemployment. We aim to bridge the skills gap for unemployed youth in order to facilitate their entry into the industry. To do this, we will leverage the consultant and training resources within PG Tops, Luxury Safaris and industry partner Earthstompers Tours. The format of this course will be four weeks of theory work followed by two weeks of practical mentorship at industry partners. The two weeks placement will serve as your “audition” for placement with an industry partner for full or contract employment. Boot camps will be run every two months during 2018 and will be held at the PG Tops offices in Airport City, Cape Town.
Our next course will kick off on 4 February 2019. The 2019 course dates: 4 February, 10 June (Garden Route Guide training) and 12 August.
