Learning resources developed with the hospitality industry
Inspiring Hospitality Careers provides a suite of learning resources which support GSCE, A level and BTEC students of hospitality and business management, together with a programme of teacher CPD. The resources have been developed with industry and reflect the knowledge and employability skills needed in real life. Resources include a series of interactive games where students have to manage a hotel – dealing with staffing, financial and marketing problems to ensure the hotel becomes profitable.
Experience the Edge Hotel School and the 4* Wivenhoe House Hotel
Students and teachers involved in the project have the opportunity to visit the Edge Hotel School and its partner the 4* Wivenhoe House Hotel. In the future, EHS hope that Inspiring Hospitality Careers events can be run by industry professionals at hospitality venues around the country.
The hospitality sector is crucial to the UK economy yet suffers from skills shortages and a poor perception of the skills and professionalism needed to operate in the sector. Inspiring Hospitality Careers can open young people’s eyes to the wealth of high skill, high pay opportunities in this global sector.
