The biggest Czech hotel group, CPI Hotels, has turned partner to the educational programme Culinary Arts (CA). The company’s hotels in the Czech Republic have undertaken to co-operate exclusively with secondary vocational schools, which guarantee the introduction of an educational programme on Culinary Arts principles. Teaching within this educational programme in the next three years shall also involve hotel chefs and their deputies. The company announced co-operation at the press conference under the subtitle Training of Cooks in Bohemia, version 2.0. In collaboration with the CA Project, Chef Jiří Roith should ensure the vital quality interlink of theoretical and practical training in schools and practice in hotels and restaurants, where the trainees get their first experience and shape their habits into future employment in the gastronomy industry. At present, the partnership has just accomplished its first month of full operation; from September, the first group of first-year students studying in this programme should get an opportunity to test their newly acquired experience at some of the hotels of the Clarion, Fortuna or Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague brands.
