Industry Recommendation

Wayne Coetzer

General Manager, The Oyster Box

Anyone who knows anything about Hospitality will know that it’s all about the staff! The staffs are what make or break your business.

It is crucial that the initial foundations of hospitality are soundly installed. IHS is a guarantee; students from this esteemed college come with a work ethos and good understanding of Hospitality. Students from the IHS stand out from the rest, and it is certainly our preferred “partner” when it comes to students.

Clifford Ross

CEO of the City Lodge Hotel Group

International Hotel School (IHS) in Johannesburg plays a valuable role in producing talented and well-trained individuals for the hospitality industry through its various programmes. Apart from being recognised both domestically and internationally as an accredited centre for theoretical education and training, it also complements this with strong practical experience in the workplace. Importantly, in an industry where quality and attention to detail is vital, the school liaises regularly with industry players to ensure that it is maintaining “best practice” standards across its activities. It is a meaningful contributor to the future of South Africa’s hospitality industry.

Johan Scheepers

General Manager, The Maslow

The Maslow Hotel is proud to be in partnership with International Hotel School as our preferred educational partner in South Africa.

The relevance of the courses offered combined with the professionalism of their faculty makes it easy to introduce students into our business without any disruptions. Sun International takes employee development very seriously and have embarked on a number of initiatives with the International Hotel School to also further the development of our existing employees with great success. I recently visited the new campus in Johannesburg and was impressed with the quality of the learning and training facilities instilling further confidence in the IHS brand as our industry partner.”

Awesome Travel

We have worked with the International Hotel School for more than 10 years and they have always provided our partner hotels overseas with high calibre hospitality and culinary students in the five countries to which we send students and recent graduates. They are driven, hardworking and come with a good grounding within the Hospitality industry and enrich and diversify the staffing complement of our partner hotels. The interns return as more well-rounded hospitality professionals who firstly raise the standards of the South African Hospitality industry and secondly, are able to empower themselves and get decent jobs as they have international experience behind their name.

International Hotel School has been instrumental in helping us achieve this through their training programme, “Guest Services Gold”. We have found the IHS training facilitators to be incredibly helpful and passionate about exceptional customer service.
