Saudi students finish hospitality training
Riyadh, September 12, 2009
Al Faisaliah Hotel, a Rosewood Hotel in Riyadh, recently held an event to mark the graduation of 15 Saudi students who completed a summer training programme in the hospitality industry.
The programme brought highly-qualified Saudi nationals studying tourism to Al Faisaliah Hotel and to Hotel Al Khozama for ‘real world’ training and experience at one of Riyadh’s leading hotels.
Al Faisaliah and Al Khozama partnered with King Saud University to select candidates from the college of tourism and archaeology, and after extensive vetting and interviews, fifteen were chosen.
For two months, the trainees developed their skills working in the food and beverage department, rooms department and front office.
The students were thoroughly trained in the art of hotel management, learning everything from how to set up room service trolleys to butler responsibilities, all under the guidance of Rosewood staff.
“It is with great pleasure that we award each of our trainees certificates of completion for their excellent work this summer at Al Faisaliah Hotel and Hotel Al Khozama,” said Peter Finamore, managing director of Al Faisaliah Hotel and Hotel Al Khozama, Rosewood Hotels.
“The students in our summer training programme were extremely dedicated, disciplined, and motivated. They were able to put their theoretical knowledge into practice, and developed rapidly during the course of the programme. The Al Faisaliah and Al Khozama teams congratulate them on their success, and predict great things ahead for these hoteliers-in-training,” Finamore added. – TradeArabia News Service
