The event took place on November 31, 2023, at the Baptist Center Nkwen, Bamenda during a common meal between the school administration and the graduating trainees. The graduating batch comes from two sections of the school; the Hotel Management class and the Industrial class.
According to the Principal of BVTC, Mr. Kimbi Peter, 27 candidates are graduating from Hotel Management and Catering Services as the 4th Batch while 21 trainees are graduating as the 16th Batch of the Industrial training. Some of the graduates also wrote the National Examination on teaching, bar, and restaurants management.
The Principal disclosed that all the trainees scored a hundred percent success at the internal examination and he envisages a positive outcome when the national results are released. Mr. Kimbi encouraged the trainees to apply to work with the CBC Health Services catering service department and to any other places they might love to work in.
In response, the graduating trainees expressed their appreciation to the administration for organizing the training and giving them the opportunity to be trained. They pledged to put into use the skills they have acquired.
To the Administrator of the Technical Services Department (TSD), Dr. Nyuonguo Kenneth, the trainees who have undergone a one-year training made of theory, practical sessions and internships in reputable establishments in major cities in Cameroon are well equipped to offer quality catering services in hotel management, catering and hospitality industry. He encouraged them to be job creators and to make a difference in the hospitality industry which is experiencing falling standards in the country, by applying the sound teachings and practical experience they have acquired during their training. “Value your skills,” the TSD Administrator advised.
