House Keeping Training

House Keeping

We tailor all our courses to reflect the needs of the delegates on the course and their establishment. Delegates will gain thorough knowledge and understanding of the essentials of good housekeeping practices. We can organise a ‘mystery shopper’ style visit by our expert trainer, who will then write a detailed report of the areas where training may be beneficial.

A housekeeper, sometimes known as a housekeeping manager, is responsible for organising the staff in a hotel to make sure that all the rooms are kept clean, tidy and welcoming. They supervise staff in the department and encourage effective teamwork.

A big part of the role is to draw up shift rotas and allocate daily cleaning duties for the room attendants. Housekeepers inspect the rooms and make sure that standards have been met. They record any faults or damages and make arrangements for repairs to be carried out.

Recruiting and training staff would also be part of the job. A housekeeper will demonstrate how to do a task to the set standard and expect new and existing employees to achieve the same level of competence.

Housekeepers work in all kinds of hotels and residential establishments, from small hotels to holiday centres, luxury health spas and private clubs.
