Training Program

KOTO's award-winning, holistic training program has achieved a 100% success rate in placing our graduates in their first job in the hospitality industry. Our training program is the combination of hospitality expertise, English and personal development with skills acquisition.








Trainees become better educated through our hospitality training and English programs, acquire key skills with our life skills workshops, and grow in confidence by developing friendships and support networks. Especially, a unique aspect of our program is about life skills workshops, which include topics on healthy living, personal hygiene, anger management, personal financial budgeting, sex education, first aid, communication, and interpersonal skills. Trainees often start off as unskilled, insecure individuals with low self-esteem, and slowly transform as they train and live with us. Being more ‘well rounded’ (possessing both personal and professional skills), our trainees become responsible, employable, self-sustainable young people, who can realise their full potential.
