Hospitality Traineeship

St Camillus Care Group and La Tour Hotel are offering a traineeship in hospitality for young people aged 18 24 who have autism and/or learning difficulties. It is a full-time study programme. Most of the training is given in a real work place, learning to do the job. Our traineeship is in hospitality and our trainees work in our hotel facility. Trainees work in the hotel 3-4 days per week and complete Maths and English training as well as a Diploma in Skills for Employment, Training and Personal Development. Trainees can work in any area of the hotel including: behind the bar, in the kitchen, dining room, or housekeeping.

The Traineeship is not paid because it is an educational programme. However, all trainees get an interview at the end of the programme and are job matched to any vacancies in the hotel. 100% of our first group of Trainees got paid work in our Gateshead. 10 started working in our hotel and 5 others got jobs with companies which were a better job match. All our Trainees are Vocationally Profiled, which means a job coach will work with you to find out what your ideal job is and make a job match. If your ideal job is not with us, then our Transition Manager, will try to find you a paid job somewhere else. How to apply All applicants are given a short, informal interview.

To be eligible to apply, you must be between 18 and 24 have qualifications under level 3 be unemployed or employed part time have a learning disability or autism. Should you need taxis to attend your training then we will help you apply for Access to Work to cover this cost.
