Why choose CTH? It's a question you may have wondered; so instead of us boring you with all our achievements, find out what real students and graduates have to say about their CTH qualifications and the positive impact they have had on their hospitality, tourism and culinary careers.


Jemima Kawimbe

Hi guys, my name is Jemima Kawimbe, I have a CTH Level 3 Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality, and this Diploma has opened a lot of doors for me. So, I just want to say thank you to CTH for having such a programme, it actually helps a lot of students get into their career path that they want to whereby they don't request a lot from you, it has opened so many doors for me, to the extent that I have actually working in the US now. I got my internship, I finished with my internship, now I got offered to stay longer because of the good work that I have been doing. So, thank you so much CTH and if you are looking into registering with CTH, the school that I went to is South African Academy of Applied Competence [SAAAC] - that college is amazing, they will open doors for you, they have so many good connections.

Mpho Mtsweni

My name is Mpho Mtsweni. Before joining SAAAC my life was in shambles and I had lost hope and faith in my abilities. I was disillusioned with myself and even the people around me. It was then that I decided to join SAAAC and register for CTH Level 3 Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality. By doing this, I changed my outlook on life as I started enjoying learning new things and mixing with my fellow students. I was then given the opportunity to work in the United States of America, but I still doubted my ability to be successful. SAAAC helped me to believe in myself and I decided to take the leap of faith. This has been the best decision I have ever made. I am now working in the Front Office at a great hotel called Aloft in Dallas Downtown, Texas. I would like to thank both CTH and SAAAC for providing me with the tools to develop and grow. I will forever be grateful to SAAAC - Prestige College as they continue to believe in me and assist me to grow in knowledge and confidence. SAAAC is my family and I will always appreciate what they did for me.

I was a student at SAAAC from 2015-2018. I did my CTH Level 3 and Level 4 Diplomas with them. During my studies I fell in love with tourism even more. In 2018, I went to Thailand with the college on a trip, during my time there I started asking questions about how I can use my qualifications to get a job there as I loved it. In October 2018, I applied for a job in Vietnam and thankfully I was accepted. Since then, I've been traveling through Asia - from Thailand to Vietnam, then Cambodia and Malaysia, and I'm planning my next trip to Korea and Japan. CTH has opened many many doors for me, and I'm so thankful that I got the opportunity to do what I love - travelling, learning new cultures, and seeing new destinations each and every day. It is something that would never have been possible without CTH and SAAAC.
