NATAS and Temasek Polytechnic forge partnership

THE NATIONAL Association of Travel Agents Singapore (NATAS) and Temasek Polytechnic School of Business have announced that they are teaming up to attract the younger generation of Singaporeans to the travel services sector.

The move is in response to recent changes to foreign workers’ levy and an increasing demand for new industry leaders.

Robert Khoo, NATAS CEO, said: “The travel services sector has long been dominated by a mature workforce and it is definitely an opportune period for new blood to be injected into the industry.

“In our quest, we will be partnering with Temasek Polytechnic to tap into its student pool. We are positive that this alliance will benefit the younger generation who are keen to join this exciting sector.”

Daniel Yeow, director, Temasek Polytechnic School of Business, added: “The objective of this collaboration is to harness the expertise of NATAS and its members, so as to equip our students from the Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management with the skills to perform effectively in an ever-changing, service-oriented industry.

“With their valuable experience, they will become valuable contributors to the tourism industry.”

A memorandum of understanding will be signed by NATAS and Temasek Polytechnic representatives on May 4.
