Malaysian students get a taste of Cheshire life

April 28, 2015

Nigel Davies, Principal and Chief Executive of West Cheshire College, had the pleasure to welcome visitors to the College to attend the first prestigious International Awards Ceremony between West Cheshire College and Yayasan Felda.  

Nigel had previously welcomed five students from Malaysia to the College at the start of their comprehensive training programme in January. Each student experienced a thorough introduction to the catering and hospitality industry and learnt many new techniques and skills.  Their experiences were complemented by the placements at luxury hotels: ABode Chester and Grosvenor Pulford, Hotel and Spa.

Nigel Davies said: “The experience they gained, especially with local catering and hospitality employers will certainly enhance their individual ability and allow them to share their experience when they return to Malaysia.  

"I am delighted that the training and skills collaboration and partnership between YAYASAN FELDA and the College has started with such great success. I feel this partnership not only brings benefits to West Cheshire College but also highlights international global relations and can only increase the awareness and positioning of the locality and the outstanding work of all businesses and organisations. 

"I am confident that this is the start of a long successful and sustainable partnership and look forward to welcoming the next group of students to West Cheshire College”.   

Dato Sri Dr Emel Faizal Dato Mohd Mokhtar, CEO of Yayasan Felda, said: “I am confident that this is the first stage of a sustainable working environment with West Cheshire College and I would personally like to thank the College for giving us the opportunity for our students to learn here. 

"It is our mission to inspire other students and graduates from Malaysia to further their studies abroad. This is because we would like our students to have the exposure on international work ethics and culture that will enhance their skills and adaptability to different working environments.”
