With the growth currently experienced in Karamoja’s tourism industry throughout Uganda, the demand for qualified and experienced tour guides and hospitality staff is on the increase.
The reality is that the industry is growing faster then the amount of trained and certified indigenous people. Our Development Programme bridges this gap by training learners in the relevant skills as well as creating the opportunity to gain the necessary experience to enter the market as a qualified Tour Guide and Hospitality Staff.
This 12 month programme is structured as follows:
During the first six months the candidates will attend registered guide courses with nationally recognised certification.
Learners will receive training in additional skills like: First Aid Level 1, Hospitality, Archaeology, Small business management, Leadership and Team Development.
Six months internship at a lodge or tour operator that will supply free accommodation and meals.
