Hotel Calamity


We had a very enjoyable morning with Maddie Eisenstadt, Project Manager at ‘The Edge Hotel training school’ at the University of Essex, when she came to visit our Year 10 budding Food specialists to discuss future training opportunities, further education and potential careers in the hospitality sector.

To help illustrate the point, Maddie delivered a University standard challenge to our students who to their absolute credit, took the challenge to fix the failing hotel and made a healthy profit.

Working in teams, students had to tackle the staffing, the advertising, the facilities, menus and guest experience at the hotel by suggesting changes and improvements to the failing hotel scenario. The blue team, comprised of Daniel, Alex and Ionie were the ultimate champions, with a profit of over £50,000 by redesigning the conferencing section and making big changes to the staffing structure.

Awesome work!
