Jari Jari Academy graduates guaranteed jobs in well-renowned spas

6th June, 2018

By JASON JACK EBIT

KOTA KINABALU: More than 30 trainees from Jari Jari Academy have recently graduated from their Spa Therapy Training Programme.

Jari Jari Academy chief executive director, Datin Jeanette Tambakau said all the trainees who graduated from the academy have already secured a job in various spas throughout Malaysia.

“All of them have undergone an extensive three months’ training and are guaranteed a job in some well renowned spas throughout Malaysia.

“90 per cent of the trainees will be working in 5-star spas in the peninsula,” she said when met by reporters during the graduation ceremony at the University Sabah College Foundation Hall, on Tuesday.

She also explained that the demand for spa specialists at this moment is high but it is still a challenge for the industry to recruit local people due to the lack of human resources.

Jeanette also added that the programme is a government sponsored programme under Yayasan Peneraju Bumiputera.

“Most of the students are from all over Sabah such as Kudat, Kota Marudu, and Ranau,” she stated. She explained that the requirements for joining the programme are the person must be 18-23 years old and their parents must earn below RM3,000.

“One of the objectives of our academy is that we want to reduce our dependence on foreign workers and to provide more opportunities to our locals especially in spa training programmes.

“Besides that, this is also one of our efforts to help the government to reduce the unemployment rate in our nation.”
