Case Description

In February 2010, Sodexo Tanzania was granted ‘Approved Centre’ status by The City & Guilds of London Institute to offer City & Guilds syllabus, examinations and qualifications to local Sodexo staff at both North Mara and Tulawaka Gold Mines.
Working in partnership with City & Guilds Sodexo is able to provide a unique opportunity to its staff on remote sites to develop and improve their skills within the hospitality industry through an external, internationally recognized, awarding body. Qualification Approval enables Sodexo Tanzania to deliver and undertake coursework assessments for three highly valuable qualifications, ranging from Certificate, Diploma, through to Advanced Diploma level.
