The Red Carnation Hotel Collection launches degree apprenticeship scheme

Multi award-winning family run global hotel company partners with Pearson Business School, to launch their first Degree Apprenticeship programme.  

This unique opportunity offers five enthusiastic and ambitious students the chance to learn and earn at a family-run, award-winning boutique global hotel chain.  The Red Carnation Hotel Group spans across 3 continents, in 7 countries and its 17 hotels include Hotel d’Angleterre in Geneva and The Milestone Hotel near Kensington Palace. This three-year Degree Apprenticeship is designed to give student-apprentices the experience of working for a leader in the hospitality sector, whilst studying for an Honours Degree at the same time.  

Student-apprentices will be paid a salary of at least £18,000 per annum (increasing to £20,000 after 18 months), with time off for study.  They’ll also graduate debt-free, as their tuition fees will be paid for by The Red Carnation Hotel Group.

Based at one of the Group’s London hotels, participants will complete a three year Business Management Degree and build up their network of professional contacts at the same time.  Over 50% of study time will be dedicated to focusing on The Red Carnation Hotel Group, demonstrating how the degree apprenticeship route is beneficial for both the apprentice and the employer.

Degree Apprenticeships are a growing and developing part of Higher Education and part of the future at Pearson Business School. The Red Carnation Hotel Degree Apprenticeship expands on the hugely successful portfolio of Degree Apprenticeships delivered by Pearson Business

School, including the Rotational Degree Apprenticeship, L’Oreal Degree Apprenticeship, Mondelez Degree Apprenticeship, Moorfields Eye Hospital Degree Apprenticeship, BBC Degree Apprenticeship and the Pearson Degree Apprenticeship.

Will Holt, Dean of Pearson Business School, said: “Tourism is the fastest growing sector of the UK economy, with 9.6% of working people employed in the industry. As the sector continues to grow we are thrilled to be partnering with The Red Carnation Hotel group to help them deliver unique degree apprenticeships that are designed with the needs of both the employer and the student in mind.”

Claire Golden, Director of Human Resources, The Red Carnation Hotel Group said: “This is an exciting opportunity to attract people into the hospitality industry; to showcase the investment, training and career opportunities available within Red Carnation Hotels and make hospitality a career of choice.”
