Le Tonle Trainer
This year, CRDT has benefited from the support of Swiss Contact as part of the Skills Development Program (SDP). The program has aided in our goals to provide Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and life skills to disadvantaged youths from Rural Cambodia.
Twenty students have so far graduated from Le Tonlé this year from Kratie and Stung Treng provinces, including nine women and one individual from the Bunong indigenous community. These students were able to learn a variety of skills, such as Basic English, Administration, Computer Literacy, Hygiene, Food Preparation, Front office, and CV Development. They were furthermore able to practice what they have learned at the Le Tonlé restaurant and guesthouse, a unique feature of our vocational enterprise.
Recruitment process for selecting new trainees to study hospitality
Le Tonle tourism training center is recruiting 60 disadvantaged youth in the provinces of Kratie and Stung Treng to participate in a three-month hospitality vocational training. To be able to recruit potential students, Le Tonle team has conducted seven community awareness workshops through-out the two provinces.So far there have been 20 applicants who applied for the programme. The training is planned to start in April after Khmer New Year.
The training programme covers two occupations in Food and Beverage service (F&B) and Housekeeping division of about that comply with the Cambodia and ASEAN Qualification Reference Standards. Moreover, soft skill and employment skill training will also be provided for students to become job-ready. While on training, students will be provided with accommodation, health care and monthly stipend. At the end of the course, Le Tonle will also provide career consultation for students so that they can make a wise decision for their future job in the hospitality industry.
Not only having the full time training to be provided for new students, Le Tonle also provides in-house training in order promote personal and professional development of our staff members. Currently, two staff from the kitchen department have been promoted as restaurant supervisors as they are enthusiastic to learn more about food and beverage operation both in the kitchen and the restaurant and bar. Both of them have to rotate to work in these two departments within two week each to learn new skills preparing them for a restaurant manager in the future. With the new job description and the coaching programme provided by managerial staff members, both of them have progressed remarkably.

Your contributions will have a significant positive impact on the lives of these individuals and their communities!
