How do I become a hospitality trainer and progress in my career?

The hospitality industry offers a significant number of jobs in the UK. Food, lodgings, entertainment, and other travel-related services make up the hospitality industry. 

Have you worked in the field and now want to upgrade your skills? ELN The e-Learning Network offers many Trainer and CPD courses for you to upskill yourself.

The post-pandemic hospitality industry is aiming to earn more than its 2019 revenues. To achieve this goal, it is vital to upskill the UK's hospitality workers. It can be an opportunity to create high-quality, high-skilled employment. The need for high-quality hospitality training has never been more pressing. 

Our Train the trainers qualifications help hospitality trainers and assessors to upgrade their career opportunities. For example, an apprentice becomes a chef following two paths of training. One way of learning skills is through courses or qualifications. Getting formal education for the skill and progressing in a career is the first path. Secondly, getting training directly from an expert. This career path includes practical work and experience in commercial kitchens in different positions.  After becoming a chef, they can choose to train learners. So a chef can become a trainer by getting relevant qualifications.

How to Become a Hospitality Trainer?

Are you working in the retail sector, or are you a housekeeper at a hotel? If you are considering upgrading your career, how about giving training in the classroom? As a hospitality trainer, you can give learners the training and skills they need in the sector. To be a certified hospitality instructor, you can opt for the Level 3 AET, Level 4 CET, or even the Level 5 DET qualifications. All three qualifications are trainer training qualifications. Selecting the right course depends on the level of the course you want to teach within your specialist area in hospitality.

Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET / PTLLS Course)

A basic teaching qualification is the first rule to becoming a hospitality trainer. ELN The e-Learning Network offers a Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) course, an introductory course for people getting into hospitality training. 

This trainer training course qualifies you to teach all level 2 and level 3 courses. Are you considering teaching the NVQ Level 2 in Hospitality and Catering or Level 2 in Cooking? You can be a trainer of level 2-3 qualifications related to your hospitality sector after completing this AET.

Our clients at Foxes Academy, a niche hospitality training centre and hotel for vulnerable adults, chose to train their trainers with us. Read more about their experience in our case study.

Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (CET / CTLLS Course)

Our Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (CET) will help you be a trainer for mid-level qualifications in the hospitality industry. If you have experience in global tourism, you could teach courses such as the Level 4 Diploma in Tourism Management after completing the CET qualification.

The Level 3 AET training is economical and faster than the Level 4 CET qualification; however, the CET will allow you to teach more courses.

Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET / DTLLS Course)

By completing the level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET/DTLLS) qualification, you qualify to train for the Level 5 NVQ/ RQF courses in the Hospitality sector. The DET allows you to be a trainer without any previous degree or qualification in teaching.

Countries like Dubai and Singapore thrive on tourism. They offer great opportunities for teaching careers in the hospitality industry.  We provide the L5 DET qualification to more than 35 nations, including Dubai and Singapore.  With DET qualification, you can enter as a trainer in these growing tourism industries. 

After becoming a hospitality trainer, you can choose to become an assessor.
