What are our students saying about our foundation domestic worker training?

  • Sarah I have just left university and I am intrigued about the domestic staffing world. This course showed me what was possible for me to work towards
  • Philippe I am completing my final year of school and I wanted to start to think about summer work that I could take part in during university. This course was great!
  • Geraldine I have worked in a hotel for a number of years and I wanted to see if it was possible to move my career - this was a really helpful short course to do.
  • Savanna Although a short course, this gave me valuable insight into the domestic world.
  • Kiki As I'm on a different timezone to London, this online course was easy to access and I completed it with ease (despite my English not being perfect). I do recommend buying the handbook too.
  • Max I think this is a fun course to do, and I enjoyed the feedback from the trainers on my assignments.

About Our Foundation Domestic Worker Training

Our training outperforms traditional Foundation Domestic Worker training programs for two main reasons:

Personalised Training – Our trainers are the best in class. They are able to quickly assess where your skill levels are and provide you with the training you need to reach the level of service you want to be at.

Active Training – The focus of our training is giving a safe space to physically rehearse the skill set you desire. Building muscle memory in a technical service like this is more effective than simply studying the books. This is a foundational training course, aimed at giving students an insight into the domestic staffing world and industry.

We have trained hundreds of students and we know everyone is different. Our trainers know how to adjust our course to fit your needs so you are always engaged and you are learning at the highest level possible.

Course dates

We offer training in person, or online. We are not currently running group training, however we can offer private one-to-one training at a cost effective route for anyone wishing to learn with us. Please get in touch with us to discuss training options suitable for you.

About Our Trainers

We have strict requirements for our trainers because we want the absolute best for our students. Perfection comes with the territory – it is a core value for our students and thus must be a core value for our trainers. If you have special skill requests for your training, let us know and we’ll pair you with the best fit.
