Signature of a partnership agreement between the EHTL and the Maison du Grand-Duc
The EHTL is very proud to be able to cooperate with the House of the Grand Duke,” explains Michel Lanners, director of the EHTL. The specific requirements of the Maison du Grand-Duc are to some extent in line with the school’s ambition to develop a culture of excellence among its students through numerous and varied educational activities based on the art of the table, gastronomic catering and hospitality skills.
The Grand Duke’s House is delighted to continue its collaboration with the EHTL,” said Yves Arend, Marshal of the Court. We are pleased to participate, through these work placements, in the training of students in a sector, tourism and gastronomy, that is so important for the Luxembourg economy.”
Among the events in which EHTL students will participate are institutional dinners and gala dinners during state visits, New Year’s receptions and garden parties. In October 2012, the students of the Diekirch school already officiated at the royal wedding of Crown Grand Duke Guillaume and Crown Grand Duchess Stephanie, which was an unforgettable experience for them. Being in the field and taking part in renowned events is indeed a great source of motivation for future hospitality professionals: Expogast, presentation of the Gault&Millau guide, Expo Dubai 2020 are some of the exceptional formative activities.
Finally, it is planned to offer particularly deserving EHTL students the opportunity to complete a training course at the Grand Duke’s House.
