Cape Agulhas Mayor Paul Swart with the Tourism Monitors.

At the start of the holiday season, 21 young men and women will be stationed in towns across the Cape Agulhas municipal district to ensure tourists are safe and have the necessary information to make their stay in the region enjoyable.

They will be employed as Tourism Monitors as part of a tourism-focused youth development training programme funded by the National Department of Tourism (NDT).

The Tourism Safety Monitors Programme aims to ensure tourists are safe and have access to information while enjoying their experiences in South Africa.

The programme places youth aged 18-35 in tourism hubs such as Bredasdorp, Struisbaai and L’Agulhas, where they will ensure the safety of tourists and give information about tourist activities of the specific town. Each town will be allocated four Tourism Monitors.

The recruits started with theoretical training on 1 September and will be deployed as from 1 December 2021 in the various towns of Cape Agulhas.

Participants will be part of the Tourism Monitors programme for 12 months, during which they will receive accredited and non-accredited training and will be provided with mentored workplace integrated learning opportunities.

This project not only provides participants with the necessary experience, but also the opportunity to earn a monthly stipend for a period of 12 months. Participants will also gain occupational skills necessary for the job market.

To provide meaningful workplace-based experience, the Department of Tourism has appointed Networx to partner with host organisations working in the environmental, conservation, eco-tourism and community service sectors. The plan is to give the participants an opportunity to grow their professional networks and increase their chances to get employment or further training.
