Top News SIH partners with Swiss group to train hospitality professionals in Singapore By TTG Asia / Posted on 31 December, 2021 14:14 Singapore Institute of Hospitality (SIH) has become the first education and training organisation in Singapore to offer Vocational Education and Training (VET by EHL), a learning programme by Switzerland’s Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL). VET by EHL is one of Switzerland’s most popular forms of education that uses proven methods to ensure a high quality of training and employability for hospitality graduates. Due to its tiered structure and flexible schedule, VET by EHL is well suited for early and mid-career hospitality professionals looking to enhance and widen their skillsets, embark on career development or looking to switch to hospitality-related careers. First professional F&B Service and Rooms courses commence in mid-February 2022 SIH will offer the foundation and intermediate levels for both disciplines in F&B Service and Rooms, starting mid-February 2022. The institution will also offer Hotel Administration and Culinary programmes in 3Q2022. Under VET by EHL, trainees can obtain professional diploma certificates in each discipline at their own pace. Three qualification levels – foundation, intermediate and advanced – are available, with each level lasting six months. Classes will be conducted two days a week with a class intake of not more than 20 trainees. The F&B Service programme gives trainees a comprehensive understanding of how the management of a F&B establishment is conducted and provides them the tools to be successful. Topics covered will include serving techniques, event management and culinary basics, food and beverage knowledge, as well as dining etiquette and protocols. Trainees from the Rooms programme will be schooled in different functions of the rooms division including housekeeping, front office, laundry, and stewarding departments, as well as rooms administration principles and skills.
