Turing Scheme

Following the success of our first project, we are proud to announce that for the 2nd time, our project ‘Global Hospitality Exchange‘ has been approved under the UK government’s Turing Scheme.

The 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. Last year, we partnered with 5 Star hotels in Portugal, Italy, Turkey, South Africa and the UAE. This year, we have widened our list of countries to include the USA, New Zealand, Thailand, The Netherlands, The Bahamas, Turkey, Italy and Portugal where participants can work for between 4 and 12 weeks, fully funded through the scheme.

This 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
Am I Eligible?

The Turing Scheme will provide funding if you fit the following criteria:

  • A learners on recognised UK FE or VET courses and apprentices
