To achieve the expected competency, a modular approach of instruction is applied; it contains the content areas for the particular skills to be developed. In collaboration with the hospitality/tourism industry, the college embarks on a partnership program where shared responsibility is practiced in providing the student- trainees with well-coordinated learning experiences and opportunities via well-designed training program from both ends.
The service- learning activities are anchored to the required /expected practices of the industry in the areas of lodging property, resorts and other recreational facilities, foodservice establishments, coffee shops, beverage bars, cruise line services & management and other unidentified-allied services.
Concomitant to the implementation of competency training program, entrepreneurial skills of the students are honed in preparing them to be global hospitality professionals, leaders and entrepreneurs.
To date, countries like Singapore, Macau & Qatar can provide on-the-job-trainings for our students. Meanwhile, United Kingdom, USA & Australia training partnerships are in progress.
