Turing Scheme

Following the success of our first and second project, we are proud to announce that for the 3rd time, our 'Global Hospitality Exchange' Turing Scheme project has been approved.

The UK government's Turing Scheme provides funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. It supports Global Britain by providing an opportunity for UK organisations from the higher education, further education, vocational education and training and schools sectors to offer their students, learners and pupils life-changing experiences to study or work abroad.

Our Project

Global Hospitality Exchange is a Turing Scheme funded project designed to give opportunities for students studying Hospitality or Travel and Tourism to carryout work experience abroad. Over the last two years we partnered with 5 Star hotels around the world, including Portugal, Italy, Türkiye, The USA, New Zealand, Thailand and The Netherlands. This year, we are pleased to be able to offer more life-changing opportunities for individuals to carry 4 - 12 week internships, fully funded through the scheme.

The Turing Scheme funding includes:

  1. Travel
  2. Sustenance (accommodation, food etc)
  3. Language lessons
  4. Exceptional cost (visa, passports, insurance, clothing etc)

There is also additional funding for students with SEND (special educational needs) or those from a disadvantaged background.

The available roles include:

  • Management
  • Front office
  • Food and beverage
  • Accounts
  • Human resources (HR)
  • Sales and marketing
