Building Economic Sustainability through Tourism Project

Jordan Hotels Association assumes management of Pathways to Professionalism

On April 16, it was announced that management of the Pathways to Professionalism program would be transferred from the USAID Building Economic Sustainability through Tourism Project (BEST) to the Jordan Hotel Association (JHA).

In February 2019, BEST initiated training for JHA staff to provide them with the skills and capacity needed to manage the Pathways program at participating hotels across Jordan and to continue to expand the program. The training covers different aspects of the role that JHA will now undertake, including training of Pathways Master Trainers and Examiners, and will continue until early 2020 to ensure a thorough handover. Since the program’s launch, management of the program had been done in close coordination with participating hotels, most of whom are affiliated with the JHA.
