SINGAPORE: Students of Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) will get to run a restaurant on campus from April, as part of their final—year studies.
The exposure will give them an idea of what they can expect in the food and beverage industry.
The students, who are now honing their skills in the kitchen of the polytechnic, will take on bigger challenges when the restaurant is up and running.
They will be in charge of every aspect of the business — from designing the menu to managing the earnings.
The restaurant, which can seat 120, will serve fusion cuisine created by the students and their lecturers.
"I hope they treat the new training restaurant like it’s their first job. I’ll need to train them but they need to learn speed, they need to learn efficiency, they need to learn style. Those three things," said senior lecturer Andy Gibb.
"If they can treat it as their first job without getting any money in their back pockets, when they finish training in the restaurant, they will go a very very long way."
