our philosophy

the namibian institute of culinary education aims to provide vocational training in the culinary arts and hospitality for the namibian youth - raising the skills level of the namibian tourism workforce and thus the quality of our national hospitality product. 

The Community Pillar of the Wolwedans Foundation Trust is to reduce poverty through skills transfer and economic empowerment and, at the same time, strengthen the capacity of the Namibian tourism industry, as a most important growth sector, to deliver quality service.

The Wolwedans Desert Academy works together with nice Restaurant & Bar, where comprehensive theoretical and practical training in the industry is provided in accordance with the syllabi as compiled by the Namibian Training Authority (NTA) and approved by the Namibian Qualifications Authority (NQA).

The aim of the training is not only to improve the service delivery of the tourism and hospitality industry but also to improve the employment opportunities, job security and income of the trainees.
