Global Hospitality Qualifications (8064)

  • Coming Soon (Feb 2020 - Apr 2020)
Last Updated: 11 Feb 2020

Based on feedback from the industry, we have updated our global hospitality qualifications to reflect the skills and competencies required by employers.

Excitingly, we have aligned these qualifications to the Global Hospitality Certification, our brand new global certification for the hospitality industry, developed in partnership with Worldchefs and employers around the world. This unique combination brings these new qualifications in line with current industry practices.

These qualifications cover transferable as well as job role specific skills, set out by employers, offering a holistic approach to training learners to be work ready. Sustainability awareness is now a key part of the offer, addressing a critical challenge for the hospitality industry globally.

As part of our innovative approach we have included digital badges as a key feature of the new qualifications. Learners who complete their qualifications will receive a digital badge in addition to their City & Guilds certificate. They can share their digital badge online via social media showcasing their qualification achievement and the skills they can offer.

By incorporating the latest industry trends and technology, our new global qualifications will make City & Guilds graduates ready for the world of work, wherever they are in the world, taking their first step towards a successful career in hospitality.

These qualifications are ideal for those looking to start or develop their careers in hospitality. They cover both transferable and job role specific skills, set out by employers, ensuring candidates become work ready not only for a specific role but for a career in the hospitality industry.
Available to deliver in the following:
  • Ireland
