IBTE School of Hospitality and Tourism
It is one of the oldest authentic learning centres of IBTE, called The Longhouse Training Restaurant. Situated at the IBTE Sultan Saiful Rijal Campus in Jalan Muara, students gain experience by preparing food in the industry standard kitchen and learning to interact with restaurant customers. Students also learn the management and operations of running a food establishment including what to put on the menu with a supervising instructor. The training restaurant is operational five days a week for lunch time and is open to the public. Reservation is encouraged as seats are limited. During events and functions for IBTE and the Ministry of Education, the hospitality students will be the first in line in preparing the meals, setting the tables and serving the VIPs. During state functions our students get the opportunity to work in the Royal Palace and serve overseas dignitaries. You can find our students working in the kitchens and running the floor of the likes of the Empire Hotel and other major hotels and restaurants in the country; all serving you with a smile. If you miss the scheduled lunches, pop by the Longhouse Café for some light refreshments.

The mini-plant located at IBTE Jefri Bolkiah Campus, Kuala Belait is a collaboration between the Institute of Brunei Technical Education (IBTE), Energy and Industry Department, Prime Minister’s Office (EIDPMO) with the operator and service companies in the oil and gas industry. The discussions about the mini plant project first started in the second quarter of 2015 and the first engagement with local service companies took place on 9th September 2016. The project was expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2017.
The objectives of acquiring the mini plant are as follows:
To support the vision and mission of the IBTE by having first-class training equipment that is up-to-date and relevant to the industry and in turn be able to produce graduates that are highly skilled and job-ready aligned with the industry requirements and standards
To supplement the theoretical lessons imparted in the classrooms by having practical lessons using the mini plant as well as assessments of competency via the real-world environment and scenarios that are relevant to industry and standards
To provide the opportunity and platform to instructors and practitioners from the industry to train and develop their skills further through the use of the mini-plant (i.e. continuous professional development, up-skilling, upgrading etc.)
