Western Hospitality Institute was formed out of the need to make Culinary Skills Training and Tourism programme available to Jamaicans, most of who did not have the necessary qualifications to access Tertiary Education in Jamaica. Upon successful completion of the WHI programme they are guaranteed partial scholarships to attend post-secondary institutions in the USA and Canada. However, depending on performance, a full scholarship may be achieved.
Since then WHI have transcended certain academic barriers and have met the criteria of Registration & Accreditation with the University Council of Jamaica and today the institution is a registered tertiary institution offering some accredited programs.
WHI has grown and so has its programmes. The institute now has three campuses across the island; Montego Bay, Negril and Mandeville offering Accredited programmes
• The School of Hospitality & Tourism Management- Academic programmes 2008 - 2010
The Institute has started the development of a wide range of Certificates, Diplomas and Associate & Bachelors of Science Degrees. Some of these program are in collaboration with our International Affiliated Colleges and Universities.
This was done to meet the growing demand of the Tourism Industry, and to provide better access to Training and Education for persons working in the Tourism Industry.
