Tourism Safety Monitors

As previously indicated I have informed you of the Tourism Monitors that have been placed in Cape Agulhas to assist with tourism related queries in and around our area. The monitors have completed their first segment of training and will work December - January in our town to assist with tourism matters.

I have requested that if there are stakeholders who wish to make use of the monitors to assist with operations at guest houses, restaurants, info centres or attractions please let me know. These monitors can assist with administrative queries, safety monitoring, handing out tourism information on the town and Cape Agulhas as a region.

Here is more detailed information on the Learnership.

 
Tourism Monitors:

The Tourism Monitors Programme is a Tourism focused youth development-training programme that is funded by the National Department of Tourism (NDT). It aims to recruit and train 300 unemployed youth over a twelve month period. Participants will be part of the programme for twelve months, during which they will receive accredited and non-accredited training and will be provided with mentored workplace integrated learning opportunities.

The Programme also aims to engage young South Africans in community service activities in order to strengthen service delivery, promote nation building, foster social cohesion and assist the youth gain occupational skills necessary for the job market and to provide opportunities for the creation of sustainable livelihoods.

To provide meaningful workplace-based experience, The Department of Tourism has appointed Networx, whom seeks to partner with host organisations working in the environmental, conservation, eco-tourism and community service sectors, with the aim being for these organisations to host one or more of the participants for twelve months. The intention is to give the participants an opportunity to grow their professional networks and increase their opportunity to gain either employment or further training in the sector

The Tourism Safety Monitors Programme aims to ensure that tourists are safe and have access to information while enjoying their experiences in South Africa. The programme places youth aged 18-35 in tourism hubs like Bredasdorp, Struisbaai and L’Agulhas, where they will ensure the safety of tourists and give information on tourist activities of the specific town. 21 Monitors will be placed in Cape Agulhas of which 4 monitors per town will be allocated.

This project not only provides the participants the necessary experience but also the opportunity to earn a monthly stipend for a period of 12 months. The recruits have started with theoretical training on 1 September and will be deployed as from 1 December 2021 in the various towns of Cape Agulhas.
