Browns Hotels & Resorts signed a MEMO with National Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Authority to upskill and reskill youth, allowing them to enter as well as prosper within the hospitality industry. The programmed themed “FutureKey” consists of a management trainee programme catering to graduates and an apprenticeship catering to school leavers. Upon completion of the former, graduates will be eligible for a management position within the organisation in addition to a NAITA internationally accredited NVQ Level 6 qualification. The FutureKey Apprentice programme is a 1 to 2-year programme where candidates can opt to specialise in either Front Office, Housekeeping, Food & Beverages, Culinary or Maintenance departments, and will be facilitated at three main locations; Club Hotel Dolphin in Waikkal, Avani Bentota Resort and The Calm Resort & Spa in Pasikuda. Upon completion, participants will receive a NAITA internationally accredited NVQ Level 3 - 4 qualifications, opening many doors within the hospitality sphere, both locally as well as internationally.
