There is a new investment in Masvingo’s hospitality sector following the establishment of a tourism and hospitality school which will open its doors in January 2020.
The Henryarthur Hospitality School will be offering a number of hospitality courses including a National Certificate in Tourism and Hospitality, National Certificate in Professional Cookery and a National Certificate in Bakery Technology.
The school, which is registered with the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education and is accredited by the HEXCO board, offers places for both full-time and part time students.
Enrollment for the first class of 2010 is already in progress, and students will be able to select between day-time learning and evening classes.
The school will also be offering short-term courses for those who may want to enhance their cooking skills for home or professional use.
HenryArthur Hospitality School director, Arthur Masocha said the idea of building the school comes as a way of cultivating new skills for the people of Masvingo and beyond.
“We have put in place measures that enable us to complement government’s education 5.0 targets. We will impart knowledge that is responsive to contemporary global standards in hospitality, catering and culinary practices.
“We want to teach people skills that people may use even at home or at their own places of self-employment. We also want to implement an idea to product system by which students are encouraged to put their imaginations into practice for the sake of innovation,” said Masocha.
He said he was pleased with the location of the facilities, which are a walkable distance from town close to the Masvingo Vehicle Inspectorate depot in the industrial area.
