    IT Tralee wins contract to run new national hotel manager training programme

    IT Tralee has won the contract to run a new national hotel management training programme.
    A number of third level institutions submitted tenders to Failte Ireland to deliver the National Trainee Manager Development Programme, but IT Tralee was chosen as the sole provider.
    The BA in Hotel Management has been developed in partnership with the Irish Hotel Federation and Failte Ireland.
    IT Tralee President Dr Oliver Murphy says winning this contract reinforces the importance of tourism in the region, and more importantly the position Kerry plays in tourism and hospitality, something IT Tralee intends to nurture and develop.
    The degrees involves work-based learning in the hotel industry, online modules and tutorials, and study blocks in IT Tralee.
    Over 100 students will pursue the course over the next 3 years, with the first group starting later this month.
    The trainee managers are from hotels in Mayo, Sligo, Cavan, Dublin, Wicklow, Wexford, Cork and Kerry.
    IT Tralee says it plans to further enhance their programmes supporting the tourism industry, and intends to establish the Tourism Hospitality Academy of Ireland.
    Failte Ireland recently provided €60,000 in funding for two research assistants at the college to support food and tourism research activities.
    The Governing Body of the Institute also provided funding for three postgraduate bursaries to support tourism related research."

    Great news there for IT Tralee. Good Luck to all starting in yet another highly competitive course within the Institute of Technology in Tralee.
