“About two decades ago, I dreamed of a modern skill acquisition centre, free from the primitive boss- apprenticeship practice which was the common practice then. A practice that subjects apprentice to all forms of punishment, undignified errands and long years of learning. This practice discouraged educated people from acquiring skills and creating employment, they all became white collar job seekers.
Exactly 15 years ago, the dream came to reality! PrettyDreams School of Catering & Events Management was founded, a modern approach to skill acquisition. Approved by the Lagos State Ministry of Education to provide vocational skills and crafts; and raise entrepreneurs who are distinguished based on their expertise in the hospitality industry.
Today, the school has graduated thousands of students practicing all over the world. Over 70% of our students are degree holders who voluntarily opt for skill acquisition as a dignifying career. Ladies and gentlemen, this is my PrettyDream
