Jinan in the northern Shandong Province and Shunde in southern Guangdong Province are the two new locations of the IHG Academy which rapidly expands in China. First launched in Shanghai in June 2006, and expanded to include the Chongqing Campus in February 2007, the IHG Academy offers a series of specially-developed learning programmes aimed at addressing the demand for trained talent in the fast-growing hotel industry.

Edmond Ip, chief operating officer for IHG Greater China, said: “The expansion of the IHG Academy across China helps us to build a continuing pool of skilled, well-trained talent. It also creates opportunities and bright career paths for talented students from across the country. And because of the IHG Academy superior skills development, we are pleased to say that IHG is helping China’s future hoteliers enter the ranks of the world’s best.”

According to the hotel operator, the students will get their best possible start in the industry from the IHG Academy’s three-year Advanced Certification programme, which covers various tourism and hotel industry subjects. All programmes combine theoretical sessions by university lecturers, industry lectures given by executives from IHG, and internship exposure at hotels under the IHG portfolio.

Along with the two-year Advanced Certification program, the IHG Academy will also offer a series of shorter, four to eight-week certification programmes designed to enhance skills in the front office, housekeeping or food and beverage functions.

The centres are affiliated with the top hospitality institutions in their respective regions – Shandong College of Tourism and Hospitality in Jinan and Shunde Polytechnic in Guangzhou.
