Capacity Building Training for Tourist Drivers
International visitors coming to Mauritius seek new and authentic experiences. As Mauritian’s ambassadors and storytellers, tourist drivers provide a window into the island’s rich heritage and culture. With the re-opening of borders last year, it was imperative to re-introduce the training programme supported by VATEL Mauritius in February and March 2022, focusing on tourist drivers including those working with DMC’s.
An opportunity for them to upgrade their skills and management capabilities and help address the service delivery gap that exists within the value chain starting with the drivers who are the main conduits for the movement of tourists and visitors.
More than 200 drivers have successfully completed the programme and will be awarded a certificate and a trained tourist driver sticker from VATEL and Tourism Authority. Since 2019, around 700 tourist drivers have followed the programme around the island.
We wish to congratulate all those who have actively participated in the sessions, and we are confident that the information received will be put to good use in their daily work.
