Welcome to NATH - Namibian
Academy for Tourism and Hospitality
Tourism is increasingly becoming
one of the most important industries in Namibia. The Namibian
Government realises the importance of tourism for the future economic
development of Namibia and stresses the importance of adequate training
as a pre-requisite to realise the full potential of tourism. Hence, the
Namibian Academy for Tourism and Hospitality (NATH) was formally
launched as an Article 21 Company in August 1994.
NATH as a non-profit
organization has strived to maintain and increase excellence in the
Tourism Industry. Through on going partnership with all role players in
the Tourism and Hospitality field of Namibia (the private sector as well
as relevant ministries of the government), NATH has its successes in
facilitating and coordinating tourism related training needs in Namibia.
Objectives of NATH
- To assist the Namibian
Tourism Industry in developing a highly professional workforce.
- To establish standard for
tourism training to meet national and international requirements.
- To propose, develop and
implement vocational and academic courses offered where needs exist.
- To co-ordinate courses
offered by other institutions to avoid duplication.
- To produce ongoing
opportunities for training in tourism.
