As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marta Duic writes, the giant Croatian hotel company Valamar Riviera is offers students of tourism and hospitality the chance to get into the profession as chefs, waiters, pastry chefs and tourism and hotel commercialism in a scholarship programme worth 2,000 kuna per month during the school year for a period of ten months.

The Valamar scholarship programme is provided to students through a partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and Sport. In Valamar’s many hotels, camps and resorts, students have the opportunity to gain work experience, and after completing their education, they are provided with their first work positions.

It’s worth noting that Valamar Riviera is one of the leading Croatian tourist companies that manages hotels, resorts and camping resorts in well-known tourist destinations from Istria, the islands of Krk, Rab and Hvar to Makarska and Dubrovnik and Obertauern in Austria.

“Today, Valamar Riviera is the largest individual partner of the Ministry of Tourism and Sport, which we’re extremely proud of. By nurturing this form of partnership, we’re contributing to the encouragement of young people to enroll in deficient occupations in the hotel industry.

In addition, our scholarship holders have the opportunity to gain their first work experience, practical knowledge and get better acquainted with all of the latest trends in the tourism and hospitality industry in Croatia. This approach connects Valamar as an employer with secondary vocational and hospitality schools throughout Croatia and raises the overall quality of Croatian tourism, as well as the level of competencies and skills of employees in the hospitality and tourism industry,” they explained from Valamar.

It is the obligation of all scholarship holders to attend classes regularly during their time there, enroll in the school year and graduate as normal. Scholars who come from other destinations are provided with accommodation and meals by Valamar at the expense of the employer when undertaking the Valamar scholarship programme.
