CHATA Launches Stay Home Hospitality Academy Curaçao in Collaboration with SVH

Willemstad, 27 March, 2020– After the recent developments in relations to COVID-19, CHATA finds it of extreme importance to communicate relevant information with its members on a daily basis. As the Hospitality and Tourism Association, CHATA finds it important for their members feel secure in times of crisis. Therefore, aside from the daily communication during this difficult time, CHATA also offered its members different webinars on topics such as marketing strategy, employment measures, tax measures and insurance. 

CHATA is aware that the impact of the measures taken against the pandemic has greatly affected the hospitality and tourism sector, as well as the thousands of people who are employed in the industry. For this reason, CHATA launches, in collaboration with partner SVH (Stichting Vakbekwaamheid Horeca), a Stay Home Hospitality Academy Curaçao. Stay Home Hospitality Academy Curaçao will give all hospitality employees the opportunity to follow different packages of e-learning courses online, completely free, for two months. After participation, the participant will receive a participation certificate from CHATA and SVH.

 “CHATA and SVH understand the impact of the situation that our island is facing, nevertheless it’s important to stay positive during difficult times and also create perspective for the future. The impact might be big, but by making good use of our time at home and investing in ourselves, we can contribute to a bright future for the hospitality and tourism sector. Normally this content is available for CHATA members and partners only, for example, Kla Pa Turismo. However, seeing how the situation is currently on our island, CHATA and SVH are making this information available for the entire sector for the period of 2 months”, shares Mr. Miles Mercera, CEO and President of CHATA.

“The hospitality sector needs our support now! With the hit it’s facing now, and all the employees who are unable to work, we want to lend a hand. For the kitchen and service functions, we will have the e-learning packages available. In the Netherlands, this initiative has already been taking place for 7 days and the people are making great use of it. With the #StayHomeHospitalityAcademy, employees can make good use of their time, working on their ability and skills in the hospitality sector, for free,” according to SVH director, Mr. Ricardo Eshuis. 

Making use of a personal portal, the participant can follow the modules online, provided by SVH, in their preferred direction
