The UK has a shortfall of employees in the hospitality sector, in particular chefs and other kitchen roles in the food industry. This has created a great opportunity for European workers who want to come to the UK to work, gain experience in a fast-paced environment and practise using everyday English with paid hospitality internships. Our training programme aims to prepare participants for a career in the hospitality industry, which requires workers to have accurate working knowledge of the language.
Not only will you benefit from our quality English tuition when you begin the course, you will continue to support your learning with Twin e-Learning, our online platform. Our e-Learning modules are the perfect accompaniment to work experience, so you can continue to improve your language capability and put your skills into practice while working. We work with hundreds of host businesses throughout the UK, so we are also able to arrange all participants on our Hospitality Training Programme an optional paid placement to take place after their English lessons.
Whether you have secured a job already or you want our help with finding a paid placement, there are a number of hospitality jobs available in the UK. Roles will vary depending on your experience and English level, but you are sure to find a variety of general roles and specific positions. Example of optional placements include:
By working in your chosen roles, you will be able to support your training while working on-the-job, some of this may include but is not limited to:
English tuition will take place at our school in London Greenwich where lessons will focus on improving your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills so that you have better fluency and accuracy. General English lessons can be combined perfectly with some of our part-time options including conversation classes and English for Work, which looks at enhancing the language that you will use everyday in the workplace. Topics include professional telephone conversations and how to construct emails.
Our optional paid hospitality placements are available throughout the UK, often in coastal and rural towns, so you could have the chance to see some of the UK's most beautiful locations. Host companies where we have recently placed students are in:
Many of these locations are often frequented by British tourists so you will have the chance to develop your language skills and hospitality experience naturally in a real-life environment. You will receive at least the minimum wage but in some instances, businesses in locations such as Devon and Cornwall have offered students a wage of up to £9.00 per hour.
