The International Hotel & Tourism School Singapore (SHATEC)

The International Hotel & Tourism School Singapore (SHATEC) was established on 2 July 1983, a milestone was set in the history of the Singapore hotel industry when the Singapore Hotel Association* (SHA) launched its very own industry school, SHATEC.

SHA which is the apex body for hotels in Singapore since 1961 established SHATEC, a not-for-profit hospitality school with the following objectives:

•To provide training and education to fresh school leavers and career switchers for the hotel and F&B sectors – this is to ensure a continuous pipeline of talents for its hotel members and the hospitality industry
•Up-skill and upgrade the existing talents in the hospitality industry

In an era which preceded structured education in hotel management in Singapore, SHATEC collaborated with the world-renowned Swiss École hôtelière de Lausanne to develop its courses when it first started. It became the region’s first dedicated hotel school, training new entrants for the hospitality industry and conducting development programmes for industry professionals.

SHATEC defines a distinctive vision of hospitality training under the founding Chief Executive, Mr Pakir Singh, who was hailed “The Father of Singapore’s hospitality training” and a strong proponent of ASEAN regional tourism human resource development cooperation in his time.

After more than three decades and over 30,000 alumni in strength, our raison d’être continues to apply in all our programmes – technical competencies, development of leadership potential, character building and personal betterment. Many achievements and recognitions were received over this period as well.

A school for the industry by the industry, SHATEC believes that every individual can succeed given the right stimuli, and provides a caring environment where budding professionals can thrive and discover their talents.

SHATECs’ standing in the hospitality education is so entrenched that SHATEC has delivered formal training programmes across numerous countries in the Asia Pacific region. Its expertise is recognised internationally and SHATEC has delivered consultancy and advisory services for projects under the auspices of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and European Community in human resource development for ASEAN tourism.
