On the sideline of the work-based education, five graduates with special educational needs of Batumi Vocational College “BlackSea” were employed at Hotel “Hilton Batumi”. The employed graduates represent different educational directions of the college: Jaghatashvili Palina–graduate of the cook specialty 2016; Mikeladze Ednari– vocational student of hotel administration specialty; Khutsishvili Nino–graduate of room cook specialty 2015; Malakmadze Gogita – graduate of IT and Web Interface Developer 2017; Tsiteladze Malkhaz – -Personal Computer User Operator.
This year, dual program of art of culinary has been included in the college “Blacksea” and became one of the leading partners of Hotel “Hilton Batumi” in this field. The promotion of employment of persons with disabilities and special educational needs is regarded to be Hotel’s one of the top priorities.
It is worth noting that employment of persons with special educational needs became a stimulus for people with similar restrictions; five hearing impaired persons registered for fall 2017 entry into college.
