The concierge, chefs, waiters and waitresses, cashiers, receptionists, cleaners, managers and luggage helpers are highly trained to meet the challenges in the ultimate people business,
the hospitality industry.
In Uganda, the most distinguished learning institute for all the above is in Jinja, on Nalufenya road, yes, that road..not the prison.
The Uganda Hotel and Tourism training institute in Jinja at Crested Crane hotel has for decades produced the most highly trained, reliable and disciplined service teams and individuals. Not a single reputable hotel in Uganda does not boast a graduate or intern from UHTTI.
Built in the 70s, the institute is bound for greatness, with government set to invest $5m (sh19.5bn) in an international standard upgrade to the school.
Funds are already available from the World Bank’s International Development Association (IDA), through the Competitiveness and Enterprise Development Project (CEDP).
