Minor Hotel Group opens application for Explorer School Leavers Programme for Maldives
Minor Hotel Group has invited applications from the Maldives for a new round of its Explorer vocational hotel training programme.
In an announcement, Minor Hotel Group invited school leavers aged 18-21 from the Maldives to apply before May 6. The year long programme will focus on Food and Beverage Service, Kitchen, Front Office and Housekeeping, it added.
Interested Maldivian school leavers are asked to contact Minor Hotel Group’s Training Coordinator Karen Gonzaga at +960 664 4100 (ext: 1074) or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Launched in Maldives in 2014, Explorer is accredited with international certification from Australia, a leader in the field of vocational education. Successful completion is awarded with a hospitality Certificate III qualification that provides the foundation for continued learning to progress towards a Certificate IV, and ultimately a Diploma in Hospitality.
The opportunity has been extended to both young internal hotel candidates and external school leaver participants who combine training with real-time remunerated work experience. The year long programme, which has since been expanded to Thailand as well, has a 70/20/10 format; 70 percent on the job learning, 20 percent social learning and 10 percent online formal classroom group training.
Each Explorer trainee is provided with a tablet allowing them access to the online learning platform that complements classroom training, ensuring a fully integrated learning experience. Upon completion they will have learnt new skills and gained experience and confidence in themselves and in an industry that contributes significantly to the well-being of the Maldivian economy.
The Thailand-based Minor Hotel Group currently operates five properties in the Maldives, including three resorts under the Anantara brand — Anantara Dhigu Resort and Spa, Anantara Veli Resort and Spa and Anantara Kihavah Villas — Naladhu Maldives, and a Per AQUUM branded property Per AQUUM NIYAMA.
