Shatec Institutes has officially launched ‘The Art of Being a Butler’, a butler training programme. The three-month intensive programme, offered exclusively to a select group of students, will see the classroom being brought to The St. Regis Singapore. There, students will participate in active learning within an off-campus environment that offers valuable experience and insight into a day in the life of a professional butler.

To maintain the highly experiential and interactive quality of the programme, the first cohort will consist of just nine hotel management students who will be exposed to a myriad of specialist skill sets – from orchestrating a private meal, proper treatment of clothing and jewellery, organising events, understanding spa arrangements, and providing efficient administrative support to modern travellers.

“By training students who have showed a keen interest in this subject area, as well as displayed the fundamental characteristics required of a good butler, we are confident that this programme will be the first step in a fulfilling and successful career in the hospitality industry and it will go a long way to elevate service standards to greater heights,” said Vice Principal & Chef Butler Anthea Tan from the Institute of Lodging at Shatec Institutes.

Butler service today has reinvented itself from being a stiff upper-lip traditional indulgence to being widely appreciated by increasingly discerning high net worth individuals.

By partnering with The St. Regis Singapore, Shatec Institutes believes that its students will learn this traditional art of service from one of the best in the industry. “The St. Regis Singapore is an establishment that represents an iconic symbol of a refined lifestyle and is famous for its excellent butler service. This provides a wonderful learning environment for our students to garner valuable experience in guest interaction and personalised service that is in keeping with The St. Regis philosophy of creating a welcoming environment and making guests feel like they have arrived home,” added Ms Tan.

The 100-hour butler programme was developed by Shatec Institutes in conjunction with the rising appreciation of exclusive personalised service among the growing number of affluent individuals, luxury residences, VIP suites, elite hotels and spas in both Singapore and abroad.

 Upon successful completion of ‘The Art of Being a Butler’, students will be awarded a special certificate, in addition to their diploma qualification, at the end of their programme.
