Welcome to CHI

CHI (Classroom in the Heart of Industry) is an employment and education training programme for 16-19-year olds.

It is a unique opportunity to undertake on-the-job training whilst working towards recognised qualifications that will enhance future prospects.

The course acts as a gateway to employment by providing a blend of classroom based learning and practical supported real-life experiences in a range of workplace settings.

Who is CHI for?

In addition to this applicants will also ideally have:

Mission Statement: “An outward-facing, self-improving, centre of excellence.”

Business Links

The course is based over two main sites at present, the Marsham Court Hotel and the Tesco Extra in Bournemouth and students have the opportunity to experience working and learning over both sites.

The staff at Marsham Court & Tesco are fully behind the CHI Programme and work closely with the students to enable them to develop their employability skills and gain an overview of the hospitality industry.

We also have training placements with Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospitals and Honeybrook Farm among others.
