Apprenticeship Program

Tourism Diversity Matters (TDM), founded by SearchWide Global, facilitates an apprenticeship program to give diverse young professionals opportunities with participating partners to gain hands-on experience for careers in the tourism and hospitality industry.

Through the program, apprentices complete 600 hours (not to exceed six months) of well-rounded work experience that aligns with their career goals in tourism, hospitality, events, venue or sports. They will also gain exposure to other local stakeholders and community partners such as the Airport, Government Agencies, Meeting and Event Organizations, Restaurants and Attractions etc. Upon successful completion of the program, a full-time position will be secured.
