This session was for over hundred students from schools from different parts of the country and is a CSR imitative in order to educate students on Foods, Hospitality, Tourism and Events.
Over the past year we at CAHM have identified this as a great opportunity to ensure that the light of hospitality reaches a greater audience. Given that, to date we have had over 1000 students at our campus CAHM @ SLIIT, Malabe attending these workshops.
The lecturers at the academy covered areas such as industry challenges, future plans to increase tourism and development of the overall industry, health and safety, food and beverage and culinary arts. The lecturers emphasized on the fact that, “passion” for the industry is what drives the interest from within. Since there are many job opportunities in this industry the children were very interested in the wonders hospitality could offer and will surely contribute as they find their passion and a successful career path.
