The Private Hotel School (TPHS) has launched a competition to find the country’s two best hospitalians, with the prize being a year-long bursary for each to study for a Certificate in Hospitality Management at the school’s Stellenbosch and Rosebank-based campuses.

Entering couldn’t be simpler and all you have to do is follow these easy steps:

  1. Upload any of the following onto Instagram: A photo of yourself in front of a tourist site/hotel/resort/landmark where you would love to work one day. You can either submit a real photo of the actual experience or photo shop yourself into the image. If these two options are not possible, you can submit a photo of the site on its own.
  2. Use the following hashtag #MyGlobalCareer and tag @privatehotelschool
  3. Upload your photo with a paragraph – of not more than 30 words – on why you would like to work in hospitality or why you want to study at The Private Hotel School.

Ten finalists will be invited to either the Stellenbosch or the Johannesburg campus for a lucky draw, with one finalist per campus winning a bursary to study a Certificate in Hospitality Management at the school in 2021.

In addition, all 10 finalists will win a hospitality experience which may be a high tea, a dinner for four, a weekend getaway or a mid-week break to a resort.

The competition closes on December 10 with the draw taking place on January 30, 2021. Winners of the bursaries will commence with their studies in March 2021.
