Singapore Airlines (SIA) is working closely with three polytechnics in Singapore to recruit and train cabin crew. This is part of the airline’s latest talent attraction strategy.

The airline has set up special programmes with Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic, covering recruitment activities.

It's also starting an internship-recruitment programme to hire and train selected students to become full-time cabin crew, according to a recent report on

These are provided under Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) that the carrier signed with the three polytechnics last week. Besides recruitment, the MOUs also cover areas of potential cooperation such as curriculum development in service, operations, safety and security.

The plan is for Singapore Airlines to also work with the polytechnics on continued education programmes for cabin crew.

Today SIA employs about 7,500 cabin crew. New crew undergo an extensive 15-week training programme in areas such as service delivery, customer relations, deportment, security and safety.
