CHS & Fortis Hotels In-Service Traineeship Programme

Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.
― E.M. Forster

The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy has partnered with the Fortis Hotel Group in their three year In-Service Traineeship Programme.

The Fortis Hotel Group consist of six Protea branded hotels. These include the Protea Hotel Capital, Protea Hotel Highveld, Protea Hotel Hunters Rest, Protea Hotel Malaga, Protea Hotel Manor and Protea Hotel Witbank. Derick Tait, the Managing Director of the Fortis Hotel Group, approached The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy for a range of qualifications to provide their Traineeship candidates the sound theoretical and practical training required for the hospitality industry.

This programme was initiated in February 2016, and the candidates have been placed in the above hotels for their on-the-job training portion of the programme.

Two separate In-service Training Programmes in Hospitality Management and Professional Cookery respectively are facilitated by CHS and independent consultant-lecturers.

These two programmes result in externally recognised qualifications and more than 60% of their senior management, hotel general managers and executive chefs in the company have come up through these ranks as In-Service Trainees.

CHS is proud of the association with the Fortis brand and look forward to future training ventures.

Below are some of the pictures from the training sessions the candidates have participated in at the Protea Hotel Malaga and Protea Hotel Hunters Rest.
