Progressive Travel Training launches industry upskill courses

A series of affordable and flexible e-learning courses, designed for the travel industry, aim to help the sector reboot post-pandemic. 

Hoping to lead the industry reboot, Progressive Travel Recruitment has launched a sister brand, Progressive Travel Training, which is behind the suite of 12 (initial) training courses, including three free modules.

The online courses include 'stress management in travel' to help the trade recover from touch Covid-related working conditions. 

To make the career development accessible to all, the courses start from £30. 

Delivered in consumable, bite-sized chunks, and accessible anywhere with an internet connection, the flexible training courses have been co-authored by Progressive Travel Training co-founder, Fi Morrison-Arnthal. 

Morrison-Arnthal explained: “It’s apparent that formal training and in-house trainers are a luxury many travel businesses and agents cannot currently afford and, while there is plenty of online training available covering destinations, product and GDS skills, travel industry employees are frustrated about the limited soft skills available. We have launched Progressive Travel Training to address that need, and to give back to the industry we love – sharing everything we know with a community that is ready to progress and come back post-COVID thriving.” 

Free modules include 'Stress management in travel', 'Migrating to remote travel home working', and 'Blog writing to boost travel business', with paid options including 'How to sell travel and achieve sales success' (£50) and 'Complaint resolution & great customer service' (£30).
