Guvon Academy is proud to announce its 2019/2020 bursary initiative in collaboration with Guvon Hotels and Spas and CATHSSETA.
The institution is awarding full bursaries to deserving students wanting to pursue a career in the hospitality industry. The bursaries are awarded in areas that scarce skills have been identified in the hospitality sector.

Funding is only available for one year of full-time study.

  • Occupational Certificate: Chef (SAQA ID 101697, NQF Level 5)
  • N4 Hospitality and Catering Services (SAQA ID 66891, NQF Level 5)
