Short Trainings Courses

Why do I need to do this kind of courses / training?

Different certifications are pre requisites to be able to work in bars, pubs, restaurants and building sites. For many of these courses we can offer you, our clients, an exclusive discounted price.

 
Are hospitality jobs different from other jobs?

Most of the students find their job in hospitality industry which is in some ways specific:

In the hospitality industry you can find jobs that pay the most out of all the unskilled labour sectors; you can even increase your wage with tips.

If you would like to work in this sector, your previous working experiences and all written recommendations from similar jobs will be highly valuable.

To work in hospitality, you must attend some of the following short trainings (see next tabs).

 

What are other jobs where students often work?
  • Cleaning - many students find their first job in the cleaning industry. Because the knowledge of English is not so important in these jobs, the timetable is often suitable for students (very early hours in the morning or late in the afternoon), so they can attend their school at the same time.
  • Jobs in shops and supermarkets - you can usually choose different work shifts (only afternoon, or mornings, only some days, etc.)
