UK: The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers has announced the launch of two leadership programmes for the serviced apartment sector.
ASAP is partnering with specialist training
organisation Forward Learning and Development, which will deliver
the programmes. Participants will complete one training
module per month over a seven to nine month period, and upon
successful completion of the programme they will be awarded with
ASAP Academy certification. With a maximum of 12 participants per
programme, this sector-specific training in small groups will
maximize the opportunities for members to learn with and from their
industry counterparts, according to ASAP.
James Foice, chief executive of ASAP, said: "With the rapid growth of our sector, our HR Strategic Think Tank Group has identified the many advantages of creating a dedicated Leadership Academy to give our members the opportunity to develop their skill base and expertise as well as build connections with their peers at a senior level in the industry. We are launching the Academy with two leadership programmes this year. The Tier One Business Leadership Programme is targeted at senior leaders in the industry to include owners, directors and board members. The Tier Two Executive Leadership Programme is targeted at SME owners, senior managers and junior board members."
"This is a fantastic new initiative for our sector which sees us delivering highly focussed training to develop our current and future leaders which specifically meet the needs of our serviced apartment sector. We're expecting a strong response from our members and plan to expand the programmes the academy can offer in 2018."
