Four Seasons Maldives Concludes Apprenticeship Program 2012

Maldives Promotion House – Four Seasons Resorts Maldives has concluded their Apprenticeship Program for 2012. The largest class to graduate since the programme began in 2001 the graduation ceremony awarded 34 apprentices at Nasandhura Palace Hotel, Malé, in the presence of Dr Asim Ahmed, Minister of Education.

In addition to celebrating the achievements of the Class of 2012 – which comprises 19 apprentices from Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru and 15 from Four Seasons Resort Kuda Huraa – the event also marked the inauguration of 60 new apprentices into the Class of 2013, paving the way for another record-breaking year ahead.

General Manager of Four Seasons Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru and company appointed Regional Vice President Armando Kraenzlin also participated in the graduation ceremony. During his speech he highlighted that the most recent international cash flow trends can be best observed in the Maldives.

“To observe change over time the Maldives is the best place on the map. I am not talking about political changes but the changes that occur in the aviation and resorts markets,” he said. “Then we saw a majority of Russian tourists arrive in 2003, since then several flights from Russia are scheduled to the Maldives. Thus we see the most recent global cash flow trends from observing these markets in the Maldives,”

Kraenzkin said that the Maldivian tourist market has changed considerably in the past 10 years as more tourists arrive from new destinations. He observed that compared to the past 10 years the average job seekers age has also changed with previously those above 20 years sought out employment but now 16 to 18-year-olds increasingly apply for job training.

He also said that the increase in the number of youth seeking employment is a sign that the local perspective on employment is changing and that it would create more innovative and enthusiastic workers.
