Inspiring people to succeed.

Get Paid, Get Qualified

Just one of the great things about an Apprenticeship in housekeeping, is that you actually get to do the job right away. You get to:

  • Work in a hospitality/housekeeping environment
  • Learn from hospitality/housekeeping experts
  • Continually gain practical skills and experience
  • Earn while you learn

 

When you successfully complete your Housekeeping Intermediate Level Apprenticeship, you will qualify with a Level 2 Diploma in Housekeeping. You will also have valuable functional skills, solid references, some great colleagues and positive experiences behind you.

An Apprenticeship really is what you make it and at Paragon Skills we are here to ensure that you get the most from it.

What you can expect

An Apprenticeship is a valuable doorway of opportunity for learners and employees to progress in their industry.

The hospitality industry, and in particular housekeeping, covers hotels, bed and breakfasts, youth/backpacker hostels, holiday centres and self catering accommodation among others, and is part of the wider leisure, travel and tourism sector which needs to recruit 855,000 staff by the year 2017 to replace those who leave or retire.

A Housekeeping Intermediate Level Apprenticeship is an investment in the skills you need to succeed in the hospitality industry. These skills include:

  • good organisational skills
  • customer service and 'people' skills
  • a methodical approach
  • willingness to learn new techniques and methods
  • an awareness of health and safety issues

 

The exact details of your job depend on your specific employer, but typically you can expect to work around 37 hours a week on a shift or rota system, including bank holidays and particularly weekends, a busy time for the hospitality sector. As a housekeeping assistant, your role could include any of the following:

  • preparing shift rotas and allocating daily cleaning duties to room attendants
  • liaising closely with other department heads and the general manager
  • changing bed linen and towels
  • making beds
  • vacuuming floors
  • dusting and polishing furniture
  • cleaning bathrooms
  • replacing stocks of guest supplies such as shampoo and soap
  • re-stocking drinks in the mini-bar

 

In a small hotel you would work under the direction of the housekeeper or housekeeping manager. In larger hotels you would report to the floor housekeeper or assistant housekeeper. In the very smallest establishments you may be supervised by the hotel owner or manager, who may also do some of the work themselves.

I've just completed my NVQ Level 2 in Housekeeping. My assessor has been great. I thought I would never get through my maths and English but with her help I sure did!
