Growing in 2012 from Uniskills Africa, to International Hotel School Training. We have since evolved to a new brand, SUMMIT which launched in 2019. We are planning to introduce new and innovative products and services in the skills and development environment.

Why was the brand change necessary? Summit evolved from servicing a single industry, to training and developing across various other sectors, and it therefore made business sense to adapt to this evolution. We have been able to do this via pioneering delivery mechanisms and we strive to continue delivering gargantuan returns for our customers and learners. As an exclusive training provider to Sun International, Summit has trained over 12 000 people across hospitality, gaming, management and food services programmes. With more than 1000 learnerships running each year, Summit is making a significant contribution to skills development in our country. Today, both employed and unemployed individuals in various industries are actively contributing to our economy because of training we have designed and implemented in various businesses. We are passionate about training, quality and customer experience. We work with clients throughout South Africa and other African countries, and we are confident in our training programmes. We guarantee the success of our training, and thereby support your business and your staff to succeed and improve through our innovative learning interventions and bespoke solutions.
