For the first time ever, aspiring and junior hospitality managers can study for an Institute of Hospitality Level 3 Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management at the Institute’s very own Greater London offices in Sutton, Surrey.
Award-winning businesses such as BaxterStorey, Sodexo, Compass, Red Carnation Hotels, Exclusive Hotels, Chewton Glen and Grosvenor House Park Lane already make good use of the Institute’s internationally-recognised qualifications as part of their training and development programmes.
Peter Ducker FIH, chief executive, Institute of Hospitality, said: “It makes absolute sense that our head office should incorporate a seat of learning for the industry’s aspiring management talent. Not only will candidates leave with an industry-leading qualification and structured pathway to career progression - they will also be able to network with our team and learn more about the work of the Institute.”
The Institute of Hospitality has a number of Approved Centres throughout the UK and abroad that offer its management qualifications. The Diploma at the Institute of Hospitality’s offices will be delivered by Merlin Consultancy, a London-based Approved Centre with extensive knowledge and experience of the hospitality industry and the requirements of management within it.
The Institute of Hospitality’s goal is to promote professionalism, best practice and reputation through developing and retaining management talent, benefitting individuals, companies and the industry at large.
The Level 3 Diploma covers seven vital business areas each delivered in two-day workshops:
- Professional Development
- Business Management
- Finance and Business Planning
- Business Marketing and Sales
- Consumer Management
- Legislative Management
- Human Resources Management
In order to suit most operations, all workshops will take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday, approximately six weeks apart, starting in August 2013 and finishing in May 2014. All units are assessed using a simple on-line test that eliminates any requirement for reports and written work making the course ideal for busy operations managers.
