Chilton has been training waiters and chefs in practical experience venues around Cape Town since 2009. The Hospitality Programme is designed to provide our students with exactly what the need in terms of confidence and skills to get their foot on the career ladder within this industry.
We have identified four factors which are crucial to to finding employment within the hospitality industry.
The Four Pillars of Success:
Practical working experience in a real live venue
A working reference
Certificate of training
The Chilton Hospitality Programme ensures that
each student is fully prepared in terms of these four requirements. The majority of our students’ training and experience occurs in a real live venue. Combined with our theory class and interviews skills workshop, this gives them valuable skills and experience within a minimal training period.
