News / RBH launches their Bloom Academy
Hospitality based Management Company RBH leads the market in delivering nationally and internationally recognised hotel and hospitality brands. For RBH, driving operational excellence across its portfolio is paramount, and one of the key reasons the business partnered with Babcock.
As part of its people development strategy, one of RBH’s priorities is to create a hospitality career pathway for employees. To bring to life this ambition, Babcock and RBH worked together to create Bloom; a unique training programme personalised to RBH’s business.
Launching on 3rd and 4th February, during National Apprenticeship Week, the first cohort of 15 internal applicants will begin a journey of learning and development on the RBH Bloom programme.
The bespoke development programme offers an exciting and innovative route into the hospitality industry by developing the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed by some of the UK’s best recognised hotels.
Bloom adds real value to RBH’s training as it is mapped alongside apprenticeship standards; giving participants a solid platform for progression across the industry. For example, three modules of Bloom have been mapped to the L3 Team Leader/Supervisor apprenticeship standard, including: working smarter, great conversations, managing people & driving performance.
Opening to new recruits and existing staff, the programme offers a fantastic opportunity for employees across the portfolio to move into exciting parts of the modern hospitality industry – all of which offer a variety of job-specific pathways ensuring RBH employees benefit from a tailored approach to learning that reflects their department and job role.
The training is delivered through Babcock’s team of occupational experts, on a 1-2-1 basis, together with best practice apprenticeship teaching methodologies to provide RBH and learners with the optimum apprenticeship delivery model.
