The mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas; the Councilor for Employment, Joaquín Villazón; and the territorial delegate for Employment, Business and Self-Employment in Malaga, Carmen Sánchez Sierra, presided this morning over the inauguration of a new course at the La Fonda catering school.
Fifty students are starting today their training in hospitality (cooking and room service) given by the Fonda in Benalmádena, although, according to Sánchez, “it has been difficult to cover the 25 places available for the room course because it seems that the vocation for this profession has declined a bit among the youngest”.
The mayor, for his part, has assessed that La Fonda “is one of the most important catering schools in Andalusia, with a percentage of job placement that is close to 100%, in which great professionals are trained every year both in service in the living room as in the kitchen”.
Navas also highlighted that “there are many prestigious companies that come to this school every year to look for professionals, so starting a course at La Fonda is a guarantee of success for students because it opens the doors to a job market in which more and more professionalism is demanded”.
“On behalf of the Benalmádena City Council, we maintain close collaboration with the SAE, the entity in charge of its management, and in the September plenary session we will carry out the modification of the concession so that it ceases to be in the hands of the extinct hotel school consortium and passes to fall on the SAE itself, and thus guarantee the continuity of La Fonda in the town”, the mayor announced.
The territorial delegate, who has wished that the course be “very fruitful”, has reported that currently “we have 50 students who will begin their journey today in the training in hospitality offered by La Fonda, which is committed to excellence to achieve the certificate of kitchen or room service professionalism”.
