A recent press release from the Worshipful Company of Innholders shares details of their 2023 scholarship. I mentioned them back in July when they announced they were open for applications. The funding will be available to the UK hotel industry, general managers and heads of department in the UK hospitality industry. Ranging from boutique B&Bs to large 5-star city hotels.
From the press release…
“Up to 14 Innholder Scholarships, each worth up to £13,000, are open to all general managers and heads of department in the UK hospitality industry, from boutique B&Bs to large 5-star city hotels. Over 300 scholarships have been awarded to hoteliers across the UK so far, creating strong, resilient leadership within a severely challenged sector beleaguered by closures.”
One of the problems that the scholarship addresses is unfilled jobs despite wage increases…
“Despite 77% of hospitality employers increasing wages, one in seven hospitality jobs remain unfilled, according to the Future Shock – Leaving Covid Behind report by UKHospitality and insight specialists CGA. With employees citing increased learning opportunities as one of the key areas where employers could improve and challenges remaining for the industry, there has never been a more important time to support its future through such an initiative.”
You can still apply to the scholarship being offered by The Master Innholders but the application process will close on Sunday 21 August 2022.
