launching a partnership programme with SCTH to educate students
Under the guidance of His Royal Highness Prince Sultan bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, President and Chairman of the Board of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), Burj Rafal Hotel Kempinski has launched the partnership between the hotel and STCH, with cooperation from Ministry of Labor and Ministry of Education, to educate Saudi high school students about hospitality and the Kempinski brand.
The programme aims to raise awareness among young Saudis of the hospitality field, and to attract more Saudis to this promising field in Saudi Arabia.
With 15 students from Al-Sahafa private high school, and the presence of high officials from participated ministries, the first training course started with a tour of all hotel departments, with introduction from each department head. Then, the students met a number of Saudi employees to discuss working in the field.
As a part of our HR department strategy to raise the level of Saudization in the hotel, and to establish a good relationship with Tourism authorities and colleges, we established this programme as the first hotel in Saudi Arabia to establish such a programme with SCTH.
