Towards the end of the study year the school conducts learning sessions on how to find and land a job.
Emphasis is placed on it being the student’s responsibility to find their own placements. However, the reality is that the staff and Trustees become involved in the background using their contacts to arrange interviews and jobs for the students. To date, each student who has graduated has been placed in paid employment immediately upon leaving the school. Regrettably some have left the profession to start families and also because they did not enjoy the pressures of the work environment. Fortunately, this is a small minority – we’ve had some amazing success stories where ex students are working in Michelin Star restaurants in the UK and one who was found on the streets of Durban as a homeless refugee who is now back home in Tanzania working as a Chef in a four star hotel (Tsogo Sun) and supporting his family who had given him up for dead!
