About the Organization

Brief History The Institute itself was formed out of the need to make available 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 part/ reduced scholarships to attend post-secondary institutions in the USA and Canada. However, depending on performance, a full scholarship can 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 grew and so did its programmes. The institute now has three schools, they are:

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.
