SHATEC was set up in 1983 by the Singapore Hotel Association to equip Singapore’s hospitality industry with a skilled workforce. Since then, SHATEC has distinguished itself as arguably Singapore’s most recognised hospitality school with many of its 30,000 strong alumni from more than 20 countries helming key positions in the hospitality and tourism industry.
It is a strong advocate of creative teaching methods. Lessons and programmes at SHATEC are further enhanced by exposing pupils to experiential learning experiences that are as close to a working environment as possible. Students also reap the benefit of interacting with local and international instructors and guest speakers who eagerly share a wealth of knowledge in their respective fields and impart important people-to-people skills gleaned from experience.
Besides nurturing young minds and talents, SHATEC is also a key player in preparing career switchers and mature workers to join the hospitality industry. As the industry school, it also offers a myriad of programmes and workshops to upskill practitioners in the hospitality industry.
