On 3rd June 2021, Four Seasons Resorts welcomed 44 apprentices to their class of 2022 at a virtual ceremony held simultaneously at both Four Seasons Kuda Huraa and Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru. The guest of honor for the ceremony was the Ambassador to Belgium and Head of Mission to the European Union, His Excellency Hassan Sobir. He has been a supporter of the program since its inception 21 years ago, appearing as the first guest of honor as well.

Though the government accredited TVET program intake is smaller than usual, it still aims to develop technical skills; to impart professional and general knowledge, and to coach mindsets, attitudes, values and behaviors for the students.

Aimed at 17 to 20-year-olds, the Four Seasons Maldives Apprenticeship Program is dedicated to providing enthusiastic Maldivian youngsters with the expertise required to excel as professionals in the hospitality industry. To date, the total number of graduates stands at 651 since the program’s inception in 2001, making it one of the most successful and long-running apprenticeships of its kind in the Maldives.

The program is open to male and female Maldivians who meet a number of entry criteria including O-level certifications and fluency in both written and spoken English. No previous work experience is required and apprentices are recruited from throughout the country for the fully funded course, recognized in 2010 as the Maldives’ first TVET-certified Apprenticeship scheme.
