Dear Valued Member and Customer,

With the COVID-19 situation, small businesses across the country are navigating a suddenly complicated and uncertain reality. Hospitality Training is thinking first and foremost about the safety and well-being of you, our valued members, customers, and apprentices during this unprecedented global event.

Service Continuity

For the our team's safety all face to face meetings with our members, customers, and apprentices have ceased. The Government's "lockdown" criteria has meant the closure of our office, however we are still able to access emails and deal with enquiries please use the info@hospitality-training.org.uk or kblack@hospitality-training.org.uk to make contact. Our voicemail will be checked on a regular basis and if the matter is urgent you can contact Karen Black, General Manager, on 07834151357

Business Support from the UK Government

We want to make sure you’re aware that the UK Government announced a number of relief packages to support the British economy and provide support for businesses. These include a £330 billion package to support businesses that need urgent access to cash, reimbursement of 80% of furloughed workers wage costs, up to a cap of £2,500 per month, and a reduction of certain taxes.

For more information about how the UK government may be able to support your business, please read here.

We’re in it Together

We'll continue to assess the situation as it evolves and keep you up to date with additional resources and information to help you and other members of our association.

Please stay safe, and look after yourselves, your loved ones, employees, customers, and communities.

Karen Black

General Manager

Hospitality Training Aberdeen


The Grampian Hotel and Catering Training Association was formed in November 1990, and is the natural development of a local project between 14 hoteliers from Grampian and the Economic Development and Planning Department of Grampian Regional Council.

We were formed in response to skills shortages, and our aim is to develop and train personnel in the industry, raising standards and the take up of qualifications.

Based in Aberdeen, in the North East of Scotland, the Association now trades as Hospitality Training, and is a not-for-profit making organisation with a fee paying membership.

By supporting Hospitality Training, you are assisting us in the development of people within the sector, and the attraction of future candidates to the industry. You give us a voice to be able to communicate your needs and work in partnership with funding bodies to ensure the sustained development of the industry and the skills required to deliver an excellent product to the customer.

We hope you will enjoy the benefits of becoming part of the Association and look forward to working with you.

Commited to the development
and improvement of skills
