An important aspect for Tsebo is the need to build a pool of skilled professionals that are specifically trained in our systems and procedures, that will help curb the serious skills shortages currently faced by the industry and the country. The program provides an exceptional opportunity for hospitality training. It is structured that the Graduate Partner will be exposed to all organs of the organization and work with highly competent professional employees. The Graduates work under "Mentorship" of a chosen "Mentor", an expert in their field of specialisation, who reports to a sponsor, in the department, under the guidance of an overall program supervisor who will be the "Executive Sponsor".
An important characteristic that makes this program different is the importance of commitment and willingness by the Graduate Partner to learn the ropes and become part of the workforce in the long term. Graduate Partners are not here to make up numbers or to be a source of cheap labour, but are a part of a partnership, bringing in initiative and academic prowess, while Tsebo in turn provides an enabling environment to show and grow skills.
