Further training in tourism: Have you learned anything today?

Are you longing for a change in your job? Would you like to try something new? Or would you simply like to improve your knowledge in a specific area? To develop your career, you need an employer who offers you the opportunities. On the other hand, you also need the knowledge required for the new job. And that needs to be learned first!

At this point at the latest, memories from your school days will come flooding back. And these can sometimes not only be of the positive variety: Mountains of homework, boring monologues from teachers, useless knowledge that we never needed again. It's nice that we're grown up now and can choose for ourselves what we want to learn.

Top motivational reasons for learning:

  • Further development is fun!
    Nothing is worse than treading water. No matter whether it concerns the job or the pay. It's not uncommon for professional development to be associated with a higher salary.
  • With a goal in mind,it works!
    After all, you know why you're attending a course and spending your nights studying. With your goal in mind, you'll get through everything with ease.
  • Fun and more fun!
    A great side effect is that there are usually people on the courses who have the same interests. This often results in friendships for life...

Studying at the university or FH
