The first ever Aberdeen dinner is taking place at the Marcliffe on the 11th October. Hospitality Training is supporting the new committee ably chaired by David Trotter at the Carmelite who will pull out the stops to make this an inaugural event that you must attend!
The dinner will be based on a "Bond Theme", and will be followed by a cabaret, charity auction, and casino.
The Hospitality Industry Trust, known as HIT Scotland, is a Scottish based charity, which raises funds to support and encourage excellence in the hospitality industry.
Over 3384 students have benefited through HIT Scotland sponsorship. Through the generosity of the Hospitality Industry in Scotland, they have donated over half a million pounds to Further and Higher education establishments, to use as either individual bursaries or for the benefit of whole year groups to enhance their learning experience in readiness for the challenge of working in our Industry!
Most of the scholarships are based on financial need, academic achievement and the student's commitment to studies in hospitality and tourism in Scotland.
As well as supporting the students financially, the scholarships also recognise individual achievement and help to build student confidence.
This financial year £80,000 has been set aside by the HIT Scotland Trustees to be distributed amongst the colleges and universities that have applied to the Bursary committee. This committee is ably chaired by Hans Rissmann, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, and is made up of industry and educational representatives.
For the last 10 years HIT has helped those to enter the industry and those already within, to realise their full potential. This is achieved through practical support, including bursaries, work placement programmes and industry conferences. Please help us continue to support the Hospitality Industry by attending one of our events.
We are delighted to support this initiative, and hope that you will come along, have some fun, drink some martinis, and help a most worthy cause. For more information, visit www.hitscotland.co.uk.
