Le Tonlé is a vocational training center operated by a local NGO called the Cambodian Rural Development Team. Most of the staff are former Le Tonlé students. The social enterprise consists of the the Training Guesthouse, Restaurant and the Training Center.
Between January to April 2019, Le Tonlé trained 28 young people from Kratie and Stung Treng Province, of these 13 were women and 15 were young men. The training of Le Tonlé focuses on two main componenets namely Food and Beverage Service and Room service.
The training curriculum is developed on the basis of the Common ASEAN Tourism Curriculum (CATC) in which 7 competencies, including core, generic and functional competencies, are adopted in the four-month training. The training also integrates a one-month traineeship for students to enable them to practice their theoretical knowledge in a real-time setting of hospitality businesses in Kratie town. By the end of the training course, a skill test is conducted to assess students’ capability against the ASEAN Qualification Reference Standard. The skill test allows students to achieve a certificate of competence from the Ministry of Tourism. After completing the training program, the students then go and do an internship for 1 month with a hotel and or restaurant in Kratie Province. Following the successful completion of their internship 25 students were able to find jobs immediately in hospitality industry.
By supporting us, you are supporting disadvantaged rural youth to obtain a qualified certificate in hospitality. Furthermore, you are giving them a great opportunity to earn a respectable living and to kick-start a promising career. Your contribution will help us in improving the quality of our work to better suit the needs of our trainees and to prepare them for the Cambodian job market of hospitality.
