Bergzicht Training and Development has partnered with Tasting Stellenbosch, a social development initiative of Stellenbosch Wine Route, to transfer much-needed skills required in the hospitality industry to the youth. Tasting Stellenbosch and Bergzicht Training and Development will now work together to ensure that unemployed youth obtain essential skills for front of house and the kitchen during a 10-week programme presented by Bergzicht Training and Development. 

This partnership will not only provide unemployed youth in Stellenbosch with expertise and input from some of the top chefs in South Africa, but ensure that the Stellenbosch hospitality industry is able to absorb qualified staff into the sector who can handle the demands of the hospitality industry.
