SINGAPORE - McDonald's opened on Monday a training cafe for Institute of Technical Education (ITE) students to give them more hands-on work experience.

The McCafe Training Academy at ITE College West is modelled after the fast-food chain's cafe outlets, and was opened officially by Senior Minister of State for Education and Law Indranee Rajah.

It will be used by students from the new Nitec in Food and Beverage Operations traineeship programme, a collaboration between McDonald's and ITE.

Both organisations signed an agreement in August last year to train staff and students in quick service restaurant operations and customer service.
