Grass Roots Social Responsibility: Four Seasons Resorts Maldives Apprenticeship Program Creates Future Hospitality Stars
Republic of Maldives - For nearly two decades, Four Seasons Resorts Maldives has been running one of the Indian Ocean's most successful apprenticeship programs - teaching and training the future stars of the hospitality world.
Alongside the Class of 2019 graduates, 66 new first year apprentices and 6 second year apprentices will be inaugurated into the new Class of 2020.
"Since the very beginning, we have taken every step to ensure our presence in the Maldives is positive, from training and developing local talent to protecting and preserving the beautiful natural environment," shares Four Seasons Resorts Maldives Regional Vice President Armando Kraenzlin. "Our Apprenticeship Program is testament to our commitment to the island communities of the Maldives, providing the skills, certification and platform for aspiring hoteliers to secure their futures."
Aimed at 17-20 year olds, the government accredited Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Apprenticeship Program equips enthusiastic Maldivian youngsters with the expertise required to excel in the industry.
While living, studying and working onsite, apprentices gain hands-on experience in their chosen discipline: Food & Beverage Preparation or Service, Safe Maritime Transport, Housekeeping & Guest Services, PADI Dive Master, Water Sports Attendant, Marine Biology, Engineering (2nd year) and Front Office (2nd year).
