Hotel manager training

Responsible for all areas of the site, Hotel managers deal with anything from food and refreshments to accommodation and amenities, entertainment to conference facilities. In larger facilities, there are usually individual department heads responsible for areas such as housekeeping, maintenance, and food and beverages.

There are various routes to becoming a hotel manager. These days most entrants have a degree, postgraduate qualification, or BTEC/SQA HNC/D in a relevant subject - this is usually a requirement for entry to management trainee schemes. However, academic qualifications are not essential - many people with just A levels work their way up from a basic supervisory position.

Potential hotel managers looking for the right academic qualification should consider courses such as a degree or HNC in Hospitality Management, International Hospitality Management, Hotel and Hospitality Management, or Hospitality and Licensed Retail Management.

There are also vocational foundation degrees available in subjects such as Hospitality Business Management. These two year courses can be taken either part-time, while working in the industry, or full-time with work placements. Whatever your background, there will be further training that takes place on the job, giving you the chance to experience a variety of roles in different areas of the business. All of the larger chains have their own training schemes for graduates which provide the challenge of taking on high levels of responsibility from the start of your career.
