As part of the South West Wales Tourism Business Skills & Development Programme the Carmarthenshire Tourism Association (CTA) are arranging a wide range of workshops, one-to-one sessions and events – all tailored to the needs of the region’s tourism industry. Focusing on the areas of marketing, business planning and customer service, as well as many others.  

If you'd prefer to access training at a time that suits you have a look at the Business Online Support Service (BOSS). They have a range of online courses on finance, marketing, skills and training, plus much more.

Many tourism businesses have benefitted from the Welsh Government apprenticeship scheme. Apprentices work alongside experienced employees to gain on the job skills while receiving training from an approved college or training provider. By recruiting an apprentice you can; reduce costs, create a pool of talent and a skilled workforce and expand your business. You cover their wages and Welsh Government offer support with some of the training costs.
