STA management students start degree at Shannon College


19-November-2011

 The future hotel managers of Seychelles

The students will be at the college, which has just celebrated 60 successful years in the industry and of which the STA is proud to be working with, to undertake their Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management.

The ADHM course was introduced in Seychelles three years ago by the STA with the help of the Shannon College of Hotel Management – a leading institution in the Republic of Ireland.

The STA launched the hospitality management course by way of an advanced diploma in hospitality management in order to provide students with a firm academic and practical foundation and the confidence required for a career in the industry.

It has been selective in its recruitment process and has received the help of trade in choosing promising students from the outset and in particular those it believes are likely to stay the course and follow a career in the industry.

Already commended for their performance, the 13 students carry the hopes of Seychelles with them as they start out on their respective career paths towards becoming the general managers of tomorrow, STA principal Flavien Joubert has said.

“Upon their return to Seychelles, they will take up positions with a number of leading hotels where they have already signed contracts,” he said.

The STA will shortly undergo a multimillion dollar development plan after which the academy will operate a Hotel D’Application, teaching students theory while at the same time engaging in the practical necessary to provide on-the-job training and echoing the academy’s motto ‘Learning through experience’.
