Maisarah 01

Nur Maisarah Bte Shaid

Diploma in Business Practice (Hospitality Management)
2016 Graduate
Currently a Lecturer at ITE College Central

For ITE lecturer Maisarah, topping her class and graduating with a Diploma in Business Practice (Hospitality Management) with Merit in 2016 was not only an academic achievement. It was also an important career milestone for her.

The former technical assistant at ITE College Central had always aspired to become a lecturer so that she could share her skills, knowledge and experiences with the next generation of F&B students. To achieve her goals, her employer sponsored her part-time studies at RP to upgrade her skills.

In addition to learning work-relevant modules like Customer Relationship Management and Hospitality Revenue Management, Maisarah also attended many industry on-site visits. For Maisarah, these educational trips were not just a useful “eye-opener” to the F&B and hospitality sectors. They also allowed her to pick up practical tips and solutions to the various challenges that she would encounter during her coursework or in a genuine work environment.

Maisarah 02

She also gleaned valuable industry insights from her lecturers’ experiences as trade professionals. According to Maisarah, their anecdotes and case studies helped to ground what she learned in the classroom in real life and to understand concepts better.

Maisarah also thought that the course helped to improve her self-confidence and refine her presentation skills through its various group assignments – both essential qualities for a lecturer. She currently teaches at ITE College Central and credits her successful career progression to RP’s diploma course.
