Marketed as the land of Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and the Serengeti, Tanzania magnificent tourism product attracts close to 1 million visitors annually. However, while the sector continues to grow at a fast pace, employment by Tanzanians in the industry continues to remain at very low numbers. This is something that we at the NCT are commited to redressing, for our country can only reap the true benefits from tourism growth, if more of our people are employed in the sector, particularly at the middle and upper management levels. The government has given us a clear mandate to ensure that more Tanzanians are employed in tourism, and we are determined to deliver on this.

Considering space problem, the Institute which was known as Tanzania Hotel School was relocated from New Africa Hotel to Dar es Salaam club at Forodhani, Kivukoni Front / Ohio Street. It was during that time when it changed its name to Hotel and Tourism Training Institute. The institute was training students mainly from Parastatal Organizations e.g. TTC, Air Caterers and Railway hotels.
