On their first day of training, more than 50 F&B students of REACH Hanoi had a chance to see with their own eyes and see what it would be like to work in the hospitality industry.
This is a part of the new F&B training curriculum, which emphasizes increasing the experience of learners with their future working environment. Toward that approach, from the third week of training, students will take a weekly one-day internship at REACH business partners until their graduation. It is expected that F&B students can be equipped with practical skills and quickly adjust themselves to employment requirements.“I have never expected the training program would be that practical. A field trip on the first day!”, said Pham Thi Yen from F&B1 class. Yen and her friends received detailed introductions and a warm welcome from Crowne Plaza, who has demonstrated huge support to REACH in providing qualified vocational training to disadvantaged youth in Vietnam.
The students got to know more about the layout in different areas including hotel rooms, conference hall, spa, and especially restaurant and bar. “This field trip helps me have a clearer picture of the places where I am going to work in. Now I feel more excited about the career I am pursuing”, shared Yen.
