Female Travel Agent With CustomersBartenders in the world’s hottest tourism destinations are turning to Australian bar and beverage training provider JERRY to train up the next generation of bar staff.

JERRY has signed a new partnership deal with SERV’ Bar Academy, based in Mauritius, with the stable of 50+ online courses accessed via the Allara Global platform, now made available to budding bar students.

25 countries and counting are using the courses including staff located at the Indian ocean holiday mecca, as well as in booming tourism hot spots like Vietnam, the Maldives, Singapore, and Dubai.

The range of courses on offer cover Cocktail techniques, Beverage knowledge, Floor service skills, Operations, and Ethics, with e-learners able to learn at their own pace and invited to engage in global discussions with fellow students.

Allara Global CEO Andrew Lewis says the company is delighted to see JERRY’s continued growth round the world.

“I’d like to welcome the SERV’ Bartending Academy in Mauritius to the JERRY family, which is growing every day.

Hospitality managers big and small see the value in training up a new breed of highly skilled bar staff,” Mr Lewis said.

SERV’ Bar Academy Founder Dean Oxenham says JERRY is a unique e-learning experience for their staff.

“JERRY is leading the industry with its engaging and informative micro training videos. It allows us to support staff development from beginner to advanced, while other courses offered through Allara Global provide training in leadership, compliance, and management,” Mr Oxenham said.

Allara Global also recently signed hospo.life, a digital hospitality advisory service and career portal for businesses and jobseekers, which provides a comprehensive library of hospitality education providers.

Mr Lewis says JERRY continues to help address a skills shortage being felt around the world, as tourism recovers, post COVID.

“We are ready to meet the needs of tourists who are now flooding back to holiday hot spots,” he said.

A recent study by the University of Auckland, using Australian data, found on-the-job training boosts retention and job satisfaction within the hospitality industry, which is vital as we head into the busy Christmas period.

Small venues through to global hospitality chains use the Allara Global platform, including Four Seasons Hotels and Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. Operators are offered the opportunity to request bespoke training courses tailored to a particular business need. Custom requests may include videos and animations, operating procedures, onboarding, and induction systems.

JERRY is named after Jerry Thomas, the creator of the world’s first Bartender’s Guide, who lived in New York in the 1800s.
