The key question is, “How not to be stopped in the face of ‘No'” says Tauhieda Brandt, lecturer of Communications in the Department of Tourism at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, as she addressed Matric pupils from various Mitchells Plain schools on career and training in the tourism sector.
The reality is, “there are possibilities we can create for ourselves”!
The Department of Tourism held an outreach event that took place at Portlands Secondary School with numerous Matric pupils who are currently taking Tourism as a subject.
Tourism is a key economic driver and one of the most exciting sectors which also creates career opportunities in hospitality and is constantly growing as it evolves.
Tourism Minister, Patricia de Lille – who also attended – and representatives from the private sector such as the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA), the South African Association for the Conference Industry, and the hospitality sector shared important information with pupils on the wide array of career and training opportunities in tourism as well as bursary opportunities for pupils wishing to enter the tourism sector once they have completed their school career.
De Lille advised, “Don’t let your circumstances determine your future.”
