Impact Of ‘Rotational’ Training On Students’ Professional Experience: Case Study Of Accra Polytechnic Hospitality Management Students



Professional training tends to be an important component in higher education, and plays a key role in intellectual and professional development of contemporary graduates. This and many other crucial factors have indeed resulted in some educators incorporating professional training related-activities in teaching and learning at the graduate level. The purpose of the research is to ascertain the impact of professional training on the learning experience of Hotel, Catering and Institutional Management students in Accra Polytechnic. The research method adopted in this study was the triangulation method which involved the use of quantitative and qualitative methods. The findings suggest that when students are giving the opportunity to work in different departments it enhances employability, competence, career path and professional development. The main conclusion drawn from this study is that most of the respondents have a positive perception of the professional training and intend making a career within the hospitality industry. The limitation of this study was the sample size which made generalising the findings to a larger population inappropriate. For a better picture of the professional training experience, this study recommends that future research be carried out where the entire population of students could be involved in the study.
