There are several constraints in current tourism training, including inadequate and backward facilities and equipment, limited practical skills of teachers as well as poor collaboration between training institutions and the tourism industry.
Vietnam's tourism sector will be at risk of lagging far behind other regional countries' and find it difficult to maintain a high growth rate if breakthrough measures are not taken to generate enough qualified personnel.
"Four elements - occupational skills and knowledge, good service, foreign language skill and reasonable allocation of labor among areas - would be crucial to meet the critical demands of the tourism industry," commented Pham Ha, the Founder and the CEO of Vietnam's First Luxury Tour Operator.
Luxury Travel (http://www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is the first luxury tour operator for luxury segment, facing with the shortage of unqualified tourism graduates and luxury travel advisors. Students from tourism schools are not qualified to work after graduating. They just have basic knowledge of tourism but know nothing about luxury tourism, and can not speak and write English well.
Mr. Hung Nguyen Sales Manager said: "We have to spend at least 06 months to conduct on the job training courses for our new staff and spend the equivalent amount of time to inspect destinations in order to help them to become a truly legitimate luxury travel advisors and they are confident to sell our luxury tourism products to discriminating travelers."
"Luxury Travel invests not only in employee by teaching them the way to provide a good luxury service for the benefits of customer, but also a happy working environment for our staff and they always feel a heightened sense of responsibility and a part of a family. Employee retention is important. We value our excellent employees as our great assets." added Mr. Ha Pham.
By 2010, the industry will have been targeted 5.5-6 million international tourists and 25-26 million domestic travelers, bringing in revenues of US$4.5 billion. Luxury Travel (http://www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) target 3% of the mentioned tourists arrivals with enough qualified luxury travel advisors and employees to provide an excellent service for forgettable luxury experience and service for discerning travelers to Vietnam.
