School Visits

Back in January we were delighted to welcome the students from North Chadderton School to Great National Hotels HQ. The students are part of the Young Enterprise Programme which enables them to experience what it’s like to set up and run a student company.

Students were given a show around the company; students visited each department and were given a snap shot of what happens behind the scenes. This gave students the opportunity to ask questions and see some of the software that we use daily.

Students and Teachers were then given some tips and advice by Management to help with setting up their company, Better Day.

Since, then we have been in touch with the students and they have won the Oldham Finals. They are now heading to the Manchester Finals! Best of Luck!

North Chadderton School Visits Great National Hotels HQ

In February, we welcomed Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology students studying BB in Hotel Management & BA in International Hotel Management to HQ for an overview on how we operate. Brian Morrissey, Lecturer, was delighted with the welcome his students received, he emailed us with this kind words.

“Honestly, I do not know where to begin to say thank you. Firstly, for the correspondence over the past number of weeks, leading up to our trip to you yesterday afternoon. I found it difficult to get to class today. Constantly stopped by lecturers and students alike expressing their gratitude for being part of yesterday. Students were blown away by the extent to which you both, and the team embraced their presence.

We were fortunate to meet many wonderful speakers during the day, who inspired the students, ignited their aspirations, enlightened their goals. In this ever-challenging industry we need to guide our youth to help drive the future, to love our industry, as we witnessed at Great National Hotels HQ. But moreover, to realise it is an orchard of opportunities, flexibility, and gratification. Your time today has fuelled this.

Moons ago the buzz words were location, location, location. Today thanks to you both and David's insightful speech they need to realise revenue, revenue, revenue.”
