Lecturers from the Seychelles Tourism Academy headed for training in La Reunion

Lecturers from the Seychelles Tourism Academy headed for training in La Reunion ( Seven lecturers from the Seychelles Tourism Academy left Seychelles for three weeks of training in La Reunion. This follows training done locally since 2012 by the two French lecturers at the Tourism Academy, Marion Etienne and Philip Monthy, and by CIEP trainer, Morgane Riboust. The training has materialized following an agreement signed last year between the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and the Centre international d'études pédagogiques (CIEP) which is a center dedicated towards education and the French language worldwide. The cost of the training which amounts to 19,600 euros has been borne by both the Organisation International de la Francophonie and the Fond Cooperation Regionale whereas the Seychelles Tourism Academy has made provision for the per diem only.

Before their departure from Seychelles, the lecturers met with Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, and the French Ambassador, Mr. Lionel Majeste Larrouy, at the National Cultural Centre. Minister St.Ange took the opportunity to wish the lecturers all the best in their training and reminded them to make the most out of this opportunity as they will be expected to share their acquired knowledge with their students upon their return. The meeting was also attended by the Principal Secretary for Tourism, Mrs. Anne Lafortune; Principal Secretary for Culture, Ms. Benjamine Rose; the Principal for the Seychelles Tourism Academy, Mr. Flavien Joubert; and the Head of Academic Studies, Mr. Philip Monthy.

After completion of the program in 2016, the lecturers will be expected to teach part of their module in French which the Ministry anticipates will improve the usage of French language in the yourism and hospitality industry of Seychelles. The Seychelles Tourism Academy has announced that they will be using both French and English as teaching mediums from now on. “This is a plus for Seychelles and its tourism industry. Our workforce needs to be able to master the these two languages for a consolidated tourism industry," said Minister St.Ange.
