SITA partners with Singapore’s Institute of Technical Education to deliver training program

Air transport IT specialist SITA has signed an agreement with Singapore’s Institute of Technical Education (ITE) to enhance the training of students in airport passenger services.

SITA will supply ITE with its departure control software used in airports across the world, to train the 100 Passenger Service students taking the course annually. In addition to the technology, SITA will provide extensive training and support services to ITE staff and lecturers.

Ilya Gutlin, SITA president Asia-Pacific, said, "This is a great program – SITA is bringing the airport to ITE to support this leader in technical education. Our collaboration with ITE is part of SITA’s global initiative to support the development of the next generation of aviation workers through a strong focus on education.

"People are the most important resource in determining the competitiveness of an organization. It is one of SITA’s goals to support the training of young people who aspire to develop a career in the air transport industry. Given the Singapore Government's aim to improve opportunities for ITE and polytechnic graduates, this is a timely announcement and represents another important milestone in SITA’s commitment to the air transport community here in Singapore.”

Dr Ang Kiam Wee, principal of ITE College Central, said, "SITA’s Maestro Local Departure Control System (LDCS) software is used in many international airports around the world. Under this collaboration, the Maestro LDCS Software will be deployed at ITE College Central’s Aviation Gallery, enabling us to provide a truly relevant, authentic and engaging experience for students. It will allow hands-on learning in passenger handling and operations, enhance students’ knowledge and broaden their perspectives about the aviation industry. SITA’s commitment to provide train-the-trainer (TTT) opportunities for ITE staff will further increase our capacity to help our students graduate with the right skills and knowledge for the right job."
