The CSIR International Convention Centre (CSIR ICC) recently hosted visiting students who are studying Hospitality Management at the Capital Hotel School.

Capacity development has continuously been a priority for the CSIR ICC. Its visiting student programme exposes the students to a real-life environment that links the value generated from day-to-day work. The learning experience challenges the students to move beyond their established classroom routines into a professional working zone.

“I gained knowledge and learned procedures that will guide me through my career and help create a good and healthy working environment for myself and others,” shared Samantha Horne, one of the visiting students.

The CSIR ICC urges other hospitality industry establishments to have such community involvement programmes to ensure that adequately skilled individuals are available for employment.
