CTC Franchises in the Philippines

Philippines eyed as tourism training hub in Asia
December 5, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – The Canadian Tourism & Hospitality Institute (CTHI), the country’s first international franchise of the Vancouver-based Canadian Tourism College, aims to transform the Philippines as the premier tourism and hospitality training center in Asia.

CTHI president Samie Lim told reporters during a seminar on ‘8 Pillars of Growth Strategy’ for the tourism sector organized by the institute that there is a strong need to upgrade the standards of tourism and hospitality schools in the country.
“We aim to become the training center in Asia,” Lim said.

Lim said that CTHI will lead the way in upgrading the current standards to the international level in terms of course curriculum, training and facilities.  CTHI will access the curriculum, policies, procedures and intellectual property from the well known and respected Canadian Tourism College (CTC).     

With the standards that CTHI brings when it opens its first school in June, Lim expects to change the tourism course landscape in the country in a matter of three years.

CTHI plans to put up schools in other parts in tourist destination areas such as Boracay, Bohol, Davao or Cebu on a franchise arrangement.

Graduate  Testimonial

Stephanie Johnson

On entering the Hospitality and Resort Management Diploma program I was unsure of where I saw myself ending up. This course helped me discover the path that I am now on.

Before CTC I was in the Business Diploma program at Kwantlen College. After two semesters I discovered that it was not the right choice. What attracted me to CTC were the smaller class sizes, more one-on-one teaching and the opportunities after graduation.

All of the staff are knowledgeable about the industry, all having worked in the industy, and are able to bring real experience into the classroom. My professor, David Butterton, made the course more interesting and relevant by relating the modules to real industry experiences. We went on work experience field trips to explore the different departments of hotels and resorts. This hands on learning made the material we were studying an actuality rather than just theory.

During the program I decided to enroll into the International Work Abroad program, which I highly recommend. I am now working for a 4 star hotel chain in the UK. Completing this program gave me the opportunity to travel and gain international experience in the hospitality industry. Without CTC I would never have imagined being where I am today.

Thanks for everything,

Stephanie Johnson
