Innovation in student enrolment and training


In a well-equipped practice room for cooking, hundreds of students of Khanh Hoa Economics School were making chicken salad and cocktail. They worked in groups, trying to meet food and drink requirements within time limits. Mai Nguyen Nhat Huy says, “Most of my school time is for practice, so I can improve my skills easily. Teachers are enthusiastic. The school cooperates with restaurants in Nha Trang City to provide us chances for experiential learning and apprenticeship. After 2 years at school, I can cook many Asian and European dishes. During my practice time at Yen Sao Restaurant, I am given an opportunity to work for the restaurant when graduating.”
