Hospitality Management Development Scheme

Published 17th January, 2006

Enhanced business performance within hospitality is the focus of a brand new initiative funded by the European Social Fund (ESF).

The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) has chosen leading hospitality trainers Brenikov Associates to support 200 candidates through a unique management development programme.

As many as 70 candidates are already undertaking the Better Business Portfolio programme to achieve the British Institute of Innkeeping Diploma in Hospitality. They attend a series of workshops at Brenikov's Jesmond Training Centre where new approaches to management development are introduced to the hospitality arena. Networking with fellow professionals in the industry is an added bonus where ideas and trends can be shared.

Marjorie Brenikov, managing director at Brenikov Associates, said: "Until now there has been a distinct lack of management development opportunities for hospitality. The success of this programme is demonstrated in the benefits to participating businesses which have been more outstanding than we could ever have hoped for. Greatly improved gross profit is top of the list closely followed by staff motivation and retention."

Pauline Frankland, contracts manager at LSC, added: "Brenikov Associates is one of the most successful training providers in hospitality with an unrivalled reputation within the trade for delivering quality training programmes as well as an examination pass rate which is second to none.

"I am pleased with the way the initiative has started and have full confidence that their team will continue to successfully deliver the training programme to ensure that this unique opportunity will improve business performance in the hospitality sector."
