« Striving for excellence », is the motto adopted in 2017 by the École d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Luxembourg (EHTL). Founded in Diekirch in 1949, the school now has around 300 students learning not only skills that are particular to catering, hospitality and tourism but also soft skills such as punctuality, communication and flexibility. One of the school’s key strengths is its family feel. Class sizes are small and there is plenty of support to go around. ‘Our school is not a production line. We look after our young people and help and support them on their journey.’
However, there are some things we cannot teach, and the students have to bring with them, such as ambition, a strong work ethic, plenty of energy and a healthy curiosity about foreign cultures. Our doors are open to motivated young people who have just completed any kind of secondary education and will pursue excellence as they train in catering, hospitality or tourism professions.
Once their training is complete, our graduates will act as ambassadors for the school as they embark on a career in Luxembourg or use their qualification as a springboard to find work abroad given that the EHTL is the headquarters of the European Association of Hotel and Tourism Schools (AEHT)
