Ascot Academy students offered hospitality jobs on graduation

16th January, 2019


KOTA KINABALU: With the increasing demand for hospitality staff, the Ascot Academy has taken the lead role in producing more of such graduates.

Yesterday, 25 youths completed the Executive Certificate in Front Office Operations programme at the academy and are just a step away to start their hospitality career.

The freshies, aged between 18 and 23, come from diverse underprivileged families from across Sabah, namely Tambunan, Keningau, Ranau, Telupid, Kota Belud as well as Kota Kinabalu.

They received their certificates from General Manager of UMS Investment Sdn Bhd, Yusak Yumboris, accompanied by CEO of Ascot Academy, Abdul Razak Egoh.

Deputy Chief of Hospitality Department, Johan Ramliee said the students received six months’ training, where they underwent four months of theory and two months of industry training.

This batch was funded under the Academy programme partner, Yayasan Peneraju Pendidikan Bumiputera (YPPB). Practical training was arranged with industry partners, such as Hilton Kota Kinabalu, Ming Garden Hotel & Residences, Sabah Oriental Hotel, Hyatt Regency Kinabalu and Dreamtel Hotel.

In his speech, Johan expressed his belief that through the six-month training, the batch learned a great deal and acquired priceless experience which will prepare them psychologically and physically for the working world.

“This is a high-impact programme where students receive job offers even before they graduate. It is my pleasure to announce that our students will be starting work in places such as The Light Hotel Penang, Hotel Pulse Grande Putrajaya, Armada Petaling Jaya, Amari Johor Bahru and Ibis Styles Fraser Business Park KL,” he said.

Johan also reminded the graduates that success in the hospitality industry relies on discipline, passion and effort, besides giving back to their families.

During the event, a student representative in her speech said that the experience at Ascot was bittersweet and thanked the teaching staff and their parents for their support in providing a wholesome and enriching education. She added that their welfare is always taken care of, and the trainers and lecturers cared deeply about their future.

Meanwhile, the best student award goes to Frances Avila Joseph, 21, from Tambunan.
