SCHOOLS OF EXCELLENCE

Besides the Phase 2 skills programmes (see Job Centre – Phase 2 skills,) WORK 4 A LIVING has a School of Excellence which is by invitation only to our very best students:

SERV

This is a Month Long intensive programme that involves both theory and practical.

This course teaches our students to serve with humility, sophistication and absolute 5-star excellence with skills in Housekeeping, Front-desk and Waitron. This course is geared to teach excellence in the Hospitality Industry. Our focus is unashamedly on the Character of the Individual as well as the skills required for this Industry. Without a willingness to serve people as a core of who we are, we will never have true excellent customer service.

After the training she was given the opportunity at Kwantu Game Reserve as an intern in December for three months.
