Kota Kinabalu: School leavers from Sabah will have the chance to undergo hospitality-related training in Singapore. 

The programme dubbed Sabah Youth Hospitality Academy is made possible with the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding between DHS Hospitality Academy with North Borneo University College.

As Sabah offers destinations that could attract international tourists, there is a need for local talents to fulfill the needs of good hospitality services

The collaboration will give opportunities for those age 18 and above to enrol in the 7 months programme. 

Prior to enrolment, interview sessions would be conducted in Sabah to allow parents to understand the concept of the course. 

Successful candidates would have a month’s training in the country and the remaining months in Singapore. 

During the six months industrial attachment in the food service industry in Singapore, students will be provided with accommodation, duty meals, and insurance.

Besides a one-way airfare to Singapore from here, they will also be provided with a monthly allowance of between SGD 500 (RM1,513) to SGD 700 (RM2,119).

Since the inception of the programme in 2016 in Peninsular Malaysia, DHS has successfully placed around 900 students. 

Five Sabahans students were sent to Singapore last year in a pilot project for the same programme.
