On 26th April, the Swiss – South African Apprenticeship Programme SSHAP has been successfully launched.
SSHAP supported by The Swiss Embassy to South Africa, National Business Initiative (NBI) and HTMi had placed students in Johannesburg’s leading hotels: Park Inn Sandton, Hilton Sandton and Hyatt regency Rosebank.
This initiative provides South African youth with the opportunity to gain Swiss certification through hospitality education, but most importantly industry exposure within various departments of international hotel brands. The model is based upon the famous Swiss Dual System where young apprentices work, and then go to school 1- 2 days per week.
HTMi Switzerland is a proud partner in the SSHAP and wishes good luck to all young hospitality enthusiasts on their journey to become industry professionals. The SSHAP is a supporting programme for the South African Government strategy to get millions of unemployed South African Youth ready to work.
