In our national Traineeship programme, our students ‘earn-while-they-learn’ in top establishments all over the country. The courses are modelled on the apprenticeship formula, where the trainee follows a planned journey through the various operating departments while studying with The International Hotel School on a distance learning basis. Our two or three year courses are focused on hospitality management or professional cookery. Trainees are employees of the property at which they are based for the practical component of their Traineeship.
Trainees receive an excellent education. Subjects are relevant and the textbooks are written by subject matter specialists. They are constantly updated. Plus they receive an excellent grounding in technical and practical skills actually working in hotels whilst they study.
The academic curriculum is made up of AHLEI subjects for the 3 year course and a City and Guilds Diploma for the 2 year course. In addition various life skill programmes such as Fire Fighting, First Aid, Basic Computers and Cape Wine Academy Courses are conducted. Trainees will also be assessed during their practical training in line with the South African National Qualifications Framework.
