★☆★ VTC Pokfulam Complex Training Restaurants Operation Resumption on 17 May 2021 ☆★☆
Due to the current pandemic situation, programme delivery is being conducted in a mixed mode which includes face-to-face classes, online and/or other modes of teaching and learning. Making reference to the prevailing Government guidelines on class arrangements, students are being scheduled to return to campus for face-to-face classes on a half-day basis, with a cap on student numbers.
Nevertheless, with the gradual completion of student projects and assessments, we will progressively resume TDS lunch operations at the VTC Pokfulam Complex from 17 May 2021 with a limited seating capacity based on the prevailing government guidelines.
For more details, please refer to our newsletter. Should you require any further clarification, please contact TDS reservations at 3717 7388 at 9:00-18:00.
We appreciate your understanding and support during this period when our student training activities have been severely impacted. Thank you.
★☆★ IMPORTANT DECLARATION ☆★☆
Student interests are our utmost priority and individual safety and campus security are of primary concern at the Institutes. For protection against contracting and spreading the COVID-19 in the workplace and the community, all students, staff and visitors are to complete individual Health Declaration upon entry to the VTC campuses/premises.
To avoid delay in the process, TDS members and guests are advised to complete the Electronic Visitors Health Declaration in advance and present the e-confirmation at the security check point when entering the campus. The declaration is valid for a specific date at a specific campus location. Alternatively, members/guests may complete a printed form at the campus entrance.
VTC Visitor Health Declaration Form for Access to
Training Restaurants / Hotel Lounge
The personal data provided in the health declaration form will be treated as confidential and used for the sole purpose of health declaration at VTC campuses/premises. Information collected will normally be destroyed 1 month after the completion of the record-processing.
To better allocate manpower and resources, TDS encourages advance reservations and appreciates cancellation notices of at least two business days in advance.
The seemingly ordinary dining operation at our training restaurants indeed involves intricate planning behind the scenes. Our trainees constantly look forward to every serving opportunity whether it is preparing food items in the kitchen or helping our guests with their dining needs in the restaurant.
Advance reservation not only allows us to assign meaningful tasks to trainees based on predicted figures, it also helps us reduce significant amount of food waste. We are proud of our freshly-made gourmet food policy, but it would be difficult to sustain this good practice if we consistently welcome walk-in guests or accept on-the-day cancellation orders. Operating a club with an institute background gives us tremendous privileges to network with industry and pave ways for our trainees, yet it excludes us from advantages and flexibility that commercial restaurants are experiencing.
Although on-line bookings with instant confirmations are completely technologically feasible nowadays, traditional ‘reservation requests’ give our front desk trainees opportunities to practice confirming bookings with members over the phone, thereby strengthening their language and communication skills and boosting their confidence.
