Royal Academy of Culinary Arts launches vocational educational training programme funded by EBRD

(MENAFN- Jordan Times) AMMAN — The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts (RACA) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) launched a new training programme for Syrian and Jordanian youth on October 20. 

The training programme, funded through the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), will support Syrian and Jordanian youth to build the skills they need to seek employment in the hospitality and culinary industries, according to a RACA statement.

Representatives of the EBRD, the FCDO and other entities, including potential employers of this programme's graduates, attended the launch event. 

Director of RACA Jacques Rossel said:“Today RACA is proud to support its newest programme in cooperation with the EBRD, as ever since its founding, following the vision of His Majesty, King Abdullah II, RACA has always sought out a means to support those who have a passion and a dream to join this industry that we all love so much, but could not afford it, through scholarship programmes or various sponsorships.”

EBRD Director Philip ter Woort added that this training programme, which will provide access to skills development trainings for the next generation of culinary arts graduates, is crucial to support not only youth's entry into the workforce but also the recovery and growth of the hospitality sector post-COVID.
