At AkH&LA, we know that our members need well trained employees in order to provide exceptional experiences to their guests. That’s why we offer valuable educational training opportunities and resources for your current—and future—employees.
Tomorrow’s hospitality professionals get their start with the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute’s (EI) high school programs.
The U.S. travel and tourism industry directly employs more than 7.4 million people. In fact, travel and tourism is the first, second, or third largest employer in 30 of the 50 states. For many young seasonal employees, a job in hospitality is the first meaningful employment experience with competitive income.
High students are beginning career exploration earlier than ever before. The hospitality industry has dynamic growth potential, offering more than 200 industry careers in a number of different disciplines.
The American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute has developed two hospitality programs to introduce high school students to the opportunities available in our industry, with a focus on educating students on the career pathways and skills needed to build a long-term career.
The Educational Institute, along with the American Hotel & Lodging Association and its Member State Associations, works to consult with workforce development agencies, community and faith-based organizations, Job Corps, community colleges and schools in order to help promote the program and facilitate the transition of students into industry jobs. It’s the premier source for providing industry-tested, research-driven hospitality training resources worldwide.
Are you a high school student looking for a curriculum that matches your area’s career cluster specifications? Our high school hospitality programs are commonly used as a solution to the academic and technical skills programs needed in order to meet Career and Technical Education (CTE) requirements and acquire grant dollars through Perkins or other locally funded CTE programs.
Give yourself a competitive edge or help your staff strengthen their position through AH&LA’s Educational Institute (EI), the world’s leading provider of hospitality resources and training. As a member, you save 20-40% off all materials.
