Review January 2021

How to train apprentices in Corona times? Under the title "Lehre trotz Lockdwon" (apprenticeship despite lockdown), a number of hotehotels in Kleinwalsertal quickly organized a five-week comprehensive training program for their apprentices in the winter of 2020/21 with the support of the initiative "PriMa - Kleinwalsertal" and Walser Raiffeisen Holding. A total of 15 training companies and 27 apprentices were part of the project. With the help of a large network of partners and suppliers as well as ambitious trainers from the companies, more than 35 training courses were organized. The project came about through the initiative of the hotels Hotel Birkenhöhe, Genuss- und Aktivhotel Sonnenburg, Kleinwalsertaler Rosenhof, Renate Liebl, Travel Charme Ifen Hotel and Familotel Alphotel.

Just as important as the recognition and winning three consultant days from Lufthansa Industry Solutions, are the empirical values from the project: The power that lies in the network of hotels, destination and partners has led to a new quality of partnership and cooperation. The dynamics and enthusiasm with which everyone worked together got everyone through the lockdown together and created meaning and motivation. This is exactly the direction in which Kleinwalsertal Tourismus eGen would like to develop the PriMa initiative in the future.
