Accra, Nov. 16, GNA – In order to improve
skills of Attendants and various staffs of Hotels and Guest Houses, Ilearn
Hospitality Training Centre will commence its first batch of training at its
Dzoworlu centre on Monday, November 18.
The Centre, which is affiliated to some
hospitality organisations in Europe would begin with 15 students from some
renowned hotels in Ghana, Ms Jenny Adade, Chief Executive Officer of the Centre
told the Ghana News Agency in an interview in Accra.
She said the 12-week course would include;
two weeks of theoretical and practical work and 10 weeks of internship for
students in hotels such as the Movempick Ambassador Hotel, Kempinski Hotel and
Royale Fiesta Hotel, all in Accra.
She said the training would give the
students practical hospitality, tourism and entrepreneurship hand-on training
skills, secure them internship, present them for interviews in partner hotels
and give recognised skills certificates to students on completion.
She told the Ghana News Agency that although
there were a lot of hotels and tourist sites in the country, most of the staff
lacked the necessary skills that would attract more patrons and gave the
assurance that after training from the centre, they would leverage their
knowledge and skills.
She said; ”It takes a very longtime to get
customers, but takes a short time to lose them and that is why training them
frequently is very necessary to stay in business.
