It is amazing to see that more and more employers who bring the cleaning inhouse are ensuring that their staff are professionally trained with more than just a couple of hours handover.
This week, the Royal Household were inundated again with applications after advertising a Level 2 Housekeeping Apprenticeship opportunity.
The successful candidate will join the team of Housekeeping professionals; learning on-the-job while they work alongside them to upkeep, clean and care for interiors and items, ensuring they’re presented to their very best.
The apprenticeship will also involve off-the-job training, supported by a separate learning provider. Following a structured programme over 13 months, they’ll gain specialist technical skills that will form the foundations of a housekeeping career, as well as providing them with an understanding of the wider hospitality profession.
At the Domestic Cleaning Business Network, we also understand just how important training is and we insist that all of our members have taken basic training in order to join. That is why we worked with the Domestic Cleaning Academy to create and deliver free training covering COSHH, Health and Safety and Risk Assessments as well as how to work safely around Covid-19 and this is now available free to all of our subscription members on our website.
