The state-of-the art facilities at AAH stand out well above industry standards.
The Food and Beverage training facilities and House Keeping Training provides students to perform their practical training in accordance with the Australian Quality Standards.
A unique feature of the AAH program is the guaranteed paid internships in leading hotels and resorts in Sri Lanka, UAE, Singapore and Australia. Internships provide graduates to apply the skills that they learned and build a network which will help grow in their career.
“Sri Lanka has a potential to reach greater heights in the travel and tourism sector and the skills gap in the sector is serious concern in Sri Lanka, having said that the skills gap is evident in most part of the developing and developed nations which in turn provides global opportunities to future graduates with the right set of skills,” stated James Christies, Academic Head of AAH.
