CSIR International Convention Centre takes aspiring students under its wing

In  support  of  developing young  potential,  the  CSIR International  Convention  Centre  (ICC) has  appointed  students  for  a  six-month  experiential learning  programme  geared  to  help them receive their respective national qualifications.  

The  programme  exposes  the  students to a  real-life  environment  that  links  the  value generated   from  day-to-day   work to   organisational impact.  The  learning   experience challenges  the  students  to  move  beyond  their  established  classroom  routines  into  a professional working zone.

The 2016   intakes  are  Kagiso  Makoe,  Princess  Buthelezi,  Ouma Sithole  and  Ntombifuthi Buthelezi. These young women are expected to experience and explore, share and reflect process and analyse while they apply their theoretical work into practical scenarios.

Based  in  various  fields  within  the  hospitality  industry,  the  students  will  get  exposure  to meeting  protocols,  implementing  marketing  campigns,   how  to  engage  with  clients,  plan and implement events, prepare and even cook different dishes.

Bronwen Cadle de Ponte, CSIR ICC General Manager, says, “Our students are encouraged to focus on the essential skills, take risks and learn from their mistakes, because the training is meant  to  empower  them  and  help  them  reach  their  potential.  The  ICC  is a safe  place, where they are at ease to enjoy their own personal growth and unlock their own strength. 

"We  wish  them  well  during  their  stay  with  us  and  believe  it  will  be  a  mutually  beneficial relationship."
