It is set to be training grounds for students from Kompas International College (KIC) and Shen Jai TVET College (SJTC) to immerse in the work-based approach curriculum implemented.
Celebrating another milestone in the expansion of the group, the launch was held in Authentique Restaurant located at Ipoh Garden Square along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah in Ipoh Garden South.
Justin Yeoh Saik Chooi, the Group CEO for Shen Jai Education Group explained, “These outlets mark another milestone in our development, expanding into hospitality and tourism industries. These platforms are open to the public and at the same time, enable students to undergo practical training utilising a work-based approach with real-life industry expectations. We have a pool of experienced and passionate chefs from 5-star hotels among others.”
The restaurant, cafe and patisserie are situated in close proximity within the premises, providing easy access and convenience. The usage of these outlets will be multi-purpose as it provides training, services and commercial facilities for the students and public alike.
