Ascott launches new hospitality centre

 

The Ascott Group today officially opened its new global hospitality training centre in Singapore called Ascott Centre for Excellence.

 

The centre will train Ascott’s 5,000 employees located in the Asia Pacific, Europe and the Gulf region to support its global expansion.

 

Besides Ascott’s proprietary programmes, the training centre is the first in Singapore to offer the Workforce Development Agency’s full range of Hotel and Accommodation Services programmes.

 

This full range of hospitality programmes will be opened to the Singapore public from October this year.

 

They range from Certificate and Advance Certificate to Diploma level.

 

In addition, Ascott has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Nanyang Business School to offer management trainee programmes and internships to its Tourism & Hospitality Management students.

 

Ascott’s President and CEO Jennie Chua said by providing students with real work experience and learning opportunities, the centre hopes to raise awareness of hospitality as an attractive career among the younger generation.
