Brazilian Ministry of Tourism qualified more than 34 thousand people in 2021
The Minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado Neto, highlighted that the offer of courses was also the highest in recent years
The Ministry of Tourism, through qualification policies for the sector, reached a record number of qualified students in 2021. In total, 34,864 people were trained in one of the 94 free courses promoted by the MTur last year. The figure is almost five times higher than that registered in 2020, when 7,126 students completed a degree offered by Pasta.
The Minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado Neto, also highlights that the offer of courses was also the highest in recent years. “The qualification is one of our priorities for the resumption of tourism. Through it, professionals in the sector have more opportunities to stand out in the market while offering a higher quality service to our tourists. Everyone wins with a more qualified sector”, the minister pointed out.
Among the courses offered by the MTur in 2021 are Tourism Service and Tourism Manager. Several collaborations were also carried out with educational institutions throughout the country to offer courses on the most varied topics. The partnership between the MTur and the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Rio Grande do Sul (IFRS), for example, was responsible for the qualification of more than 27 thousand people. La Pasta also opened vacancies for regional tour guides from Cadastur to specialize in natural and cultural attractions in different regions of the country.
Another highlight of last year was the offer of training aimed at improving the service to tourists with disabilities. The Libras for Public Service course, carried out in collaboration with the Instituto de Educação de Rondônia/ACELIBRAS, was so popular that two editions were opened, training 534 professionals. The Basic Training and Autism and Inclusion course, in alliance with Include Training, is also in its second edition, due to the success of registrations.
