In support of developing young potential, the CSIR International Convention Centre (CSIR ICC) has appointed 6 students for a six-month experiential learning programme geared to help them receive their respective national qualifications.
Capacity development has continuously been a priority for the CSIR ICC. To this end, the CSIR ICC has accommodated more than 20 in-service trainees over the years, some of whom are now permanently employed by the CSIR on a full-time or part-time basis.
The programme exposes the students to a real-life environment that links the value generated from day-to-day work to organisational impact. The learning experience challenges the students to move beyond their established classroom routines into a professional working zone.
The CSIR International Convention Centre urges other hospitality industry establishments to have such community involvement programmes to ensure that adequately skilled individuals are available for employment.
