MYANMAR - Yangon students flying high
On 1 November 2019, Yangon Aerodrome Company Limited (YACL) signed a partnership agreement with the Human Resources Development in the Hospitality and Tourism Sector Project - MYA/001 to provide internship opportunities at Yangon International Airport and to offer select staff of senior operations to teach relevant travel and tourism modules at the Centre for Tourism Development (CTD) in Yangon.
YACL will also collaborate with the project in order to help develop the curriculum to train local tourism and travel students who are interested in aviation and airport operations. The students will be able to draw upon YACL’s industry knowledge to develop their skills and experience in the field.
As part of the MoU, CTD will put forward eligible student interns, while YACL will supervise and assess them onsite, provide trainers, training venues, and working arrangements, among other tasks. Upon completion of the internship program, YACL hopes to create a pool of aviation professionals capable of supporting the growing demand for qualified aviation staff.
The MoU was signed by Mr. Pedro Cavem, Operations and Safety Director of YACL, and Mr. Geert De Bruycker, Chief Technical Coordinator, who stated that “the MoU commemorates the joint efforts between the project and YACL in building cooperation to develop local human resource capacity and to improve service”.
