SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) is working closely with three polytechnics to recruit and train cabin crew, as part of efforts to attract the best talent.
It has special programmes with Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic, covering recruitment activities.
It’s also starting an internship—recruitment programme to hire and train selected students to become full—time cabin crew.
These are provided under Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) that the carrier signed with the three polytechnics on Thursday.
Besides recruitment, the MOUs also cover areas of potential cooperation such as curriculum development in service, operations, safety and security.
