In the previous years we see that the hospitality industry was not too keen on having academic or experienced graduates as employees because the hotels they worked for had a place for them to be able to get on the job training for whatever job requirements they needed furthermore it was a challenge in finding a hospitality and tourism school around as it was very rare and expensive if one was to get enrolled.(source)
We can see that findings are showing that this issue is not only experienced in Kenya alone but around the world it is one of the main concerns.in Ghana we see that lack of quality skilled personnel is the leading problem that is affecting the hospitality industry (Modern Ghana, 2018).
