As part of our on-going centre visits programme, just before Christmas, one of our CTH team members paid a visit to our new centre, SWISSAM in St.Petersburg, Russia.

The Institute of Hotel, Restaurant and Culinary Art SWISSAM, often simplified to SWISSAM, is one of Russia’s finest Hospitality and Culinary training centres and partners with CTH on its final year Bachelor’s programme in hospitality.

The CTH visit coincided with the semester-end student project presentations, as well as the college’s post-assessment Exam Board. Simon Cleaver, CTH’s Director of Partnerships, attended both events as part of the CTH quality assurance process, but was also able to take the opportunity to sample the culinary delights of this amazing world city.

With its high-calibre student body drawn from both Russia and its neighbouring countries, SWISSAM is training the next generation of Hospitality professionals to be ready to further develop St. Petersburg’s already booming Hospitality industry.
