Themed “Ready Employers, Ready Employees”, SOH Industry Day 2017 unveiled new initiatives and 14 new partnerships in a bid to drive innovation and develop a future-ready and sustainable talent pipeline for the hospitality sector.

As part of RP’s continual effort to equip students and staff with the latest knowledge and skills to cope with dynamic industry needs, the Diploma in Wellness, Lifestyle and Spa Management was renamed the Diploma in Wellness with Hospitality Business. This move accommodates the recent expansion of the wellness sector and the rising demand for skilled labour. The diploma has also been updated with new modules to equip students with relevant skills and up-to-date knowledge on wellness industry trends.

In commemoration of RP’s 15th anniversary, SOH’s coffee table cookbook entitled Great Food, Great Health: 25 Recipes for Happy Living was also launched at the SOH Industry Day. This cookbook is a collaboration between SOH and RP School of Sports, Health and Leisure. It features easy-to-prepare recipes with useful health tips, nutritional facts and analysis, and recommended exercises.
