The general objective of attachment placement for students taking food and beverage as a course is to gather practical knowledge about Hospitality industry usually is goes for a period of three months.
 KMET Vocational Training Centre is a Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA) accredited Center where we offer three courses, food and beverage, hairdressing and beauty and tailoring and dressmaking and  our major focus is on vulnerable girls.
We are proud that most of our students are doing pretty well in their various places of attachment in hotel industry  as seen during assessment that is done to measure their learning and other general characters.
Meet Getruda Philipo, one of our students in the food and beverage class and currently undertaking her attachment at Le Savanna Country Lodge Hotel, one of the well-known hotels in Kisumu town. She joined the Vocational school in May 2017 after completing her Secondary studies in 2016 at Bishop Okoth mixed school.
Getruda is one of the beneficiary of the USAID funded DREAMS program thus; her school fee at the vocational Centre is guaranteed. She said working in the hotel industry has always been her career dream and she is happy that it came full filled way earlier than she expected. “It took me a little more time to catch up with the daily business in here; I used to lag myself a lot and most of the times I even felt the work was too much for me. Now that I am well acquainted with each department, I find it very easy. Have worked in the service department, housekeeping and a times front office where I directly relate with the guest.” Says Getruda
”she is discipline, well behaved and has respect for her fellow colleagues. Apart from that, she is always punctual especially when reporting for her duties “, said Dorothy Oselu one of her supervisors. She added that she would recommend her for employment without any fear of disappointment.
My special gratitude to the school management for finding me such a beautiful and engaging hotel for attachment and to the hotel management for accommodating me for this period. I want to inspire other girls who have struggled in life like me not to ever-lose hope in their dreams.
