Aurion Learning has been selected as Fáilte Ireland’s digital learning provider, to deliver their new online learning platform for tourism industry professionals, following a competitive tender process.

The online learning platform, named ‘learniFI’, showcases over 150 online courses to help industry professionals to develop their careers in tourism and hospitality, ensuring they have the required skills and knowledge to do their jobs effectively and efficiently.

Working in collaboration with the Fáilte Ireland team, Aurion Learning developed the new online learning platform to help support the industry to retain the talent it needs to drive recovery, as well as driving skills development, to meet current and future skills needs. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the labour supply and skills across the tourism and hospitality industries have been hit particularly hard. The pandemic caused a significant number of skilled workers to leave the sector, with many not returning.

Currently, one in three employees working in tourism and hospitality is new to the sector, which underlines how great the skills gap is and the need for learniFI.

Aurion Learning applied its learning design expertise to provide a world-class user experience, integrating learniFI with existing Fáilte Ireland systems to help streamline processes and create efficiencies. learniFI is learner-centric and scalable, with access to the platform available anytime, anywhere and from any device. Aurion Learning also provides dedicated ongoing support for system administrators.

LearniFI is suitable for employees at all levels of the sector, from new starts to managers with wider experience. Each user has the opportunity to access expert guidance to help them in their current role, with extra tools that encourage and support career progression. The platform is tailored to meet the needs of Fáilte Ireland and the tourism industry, to help drive business performance in the sector, helping businesses to survive and thrive.

Commenting on the partnership, Gavin Woods, Managing Director at Aurion Learning said:

Following an extensive tender process, we were thrilled that Fáilte Ireland selected Aurion Learning to create a scalable and engaging learning platform to provide thousands of staff working in the tourism industry with access to knowledge and subject matter expertise quickly and easily.

Having worked on several recent government agency projects, specifically designed for external users across Ireland, we really enjoyed applying our award-winning learning design skills to support Fáilte Ireland in achieving their goals.”
