SSHAP Moves Forward – Swiss South African Apprenticeship Programme – South Africa

H.E. Swiss Ambassador to South Africa, Dr. Nicolas Bruehl, presented the HTMi Certificates to the first cohort of Apprentices, who successfully completed the dual system apprenticeship programme in leading hotels in Johannesburg. The second group of apprentices is now being selected, and a scaling-up plan in progress. This initiative to get large numbers of unemployed youth into jobs in the hospitality industry is being driven by the Swiss Embassy in South Africa, the NBI, National Business Initiative South Africa, HTMi Swizterland, and supported by Hilton, Hyatt and Park Inn in South Africa.

Commended are HTMi’s international support team: Bernie Quinn, Vinoth Prakas, Dominik Krizan, Jon Lim and Nishant Suri.
