We were thrilled to welcome Emma Bourne, Macmillan's Managing Director of Education - Curriculum, to South Africa for a few days in June. While she was here, Gan Krishna and Valerie Snyders arranged a visit to Tshwane South TVET College. The highlight of our visit was having a tour of the Hospitality Services department by one of the lecturers.
We saw the cooking facilities, which looked like the set of Masterchef, complete with walk in fridges and fully stocked pantries. One of the classrooms had even been decorated as a restaurant so that students could practise table setting, serving food and operating point of sale systems. Unfortunately, the students were writing exams, so no delicious treats were available for us to sample!
