Four Seasons Maldives has concluded another round of its apprenticeship programme, certifying 47 school graduates for jobs in the tourism industry.
At a ceremony held at the Art Gallery in capital Male on Sunday, environment minister Toriq Ibrahim handed over certificates to the 47 participants; 27 who had trained in Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru and 20 who had trained in Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa.

Launched in 2003, Four Seasons Resorts Maldives Hospitality Apprenticeship Programme is one of the most prestigious training programmes in the country dedicated to the tourism industry. The programme, which is open for O-Level graduates aged 17-20, offers the best possible start in the hospitality industry for young Maldivians.
Since its introduction, the programme has trained more than 500 Maldivians in different areas of hospitality and tourism, including water sports, housekeeping and F&B.
Four Seasons manages two resorts in the Maldives — Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru and Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa — and has recently opened a private island retreat called Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah. The world-renowned Canadian hospitality group also operates a luxury yacht, Four Seasons Explorer, to complement its properties in the Maldives.
