Learning and development
Here at Bluestone we put our faith in our people - we want to see you succeed. We help you reach your goals by offering a range of learning and development opportunities, from gaining qualifications to mentoring programmes and more.
We inspire and educate the next generation to work in Pembrokeshire’s tourism sector. Our Outreach Programme is specially designed to showcase the diverse and exciting range of careers available at Bluestone to pupils at local schools and students in further education.
We invest time and money into our talented Bluestone Family and are proud when our employees achieve. We offer the opportunity to gain qualifications as you work in areas such as Sales, Customer Service, IT, Business, Childcare and more. Plus, the chance to complete external qualifications from Level 3 Education and Training to NEBOSH General Certificate and several maintenance courses. We also have a selection of innovative and engaging online training modules to help you learn and develop in your role.
Internal progression is important to us at Bluestone. Whether it’s a promotion in your current team or a sideways move into a new department you’d like to join, we encourage it all. We support you in doing so, too, through our leadership training and mentoring programmes where you learn from other members of staff, plus gaining new skills such as First Aid, Lifeguarding and Mixology.
“Since starting at Bluestone, I have completed my Professional Cookery qualifications and have progressed to a Sous Chef... It’s a great place to work with lots of training and progression opportunities.”
We aim to transform the perception of careers in the tourism industry by investing in people and providing professional work-based learning opportunities, designed and delivered by the businesses that need them.
The Academy will be a flag-bearer for quality standards for the industry, delivered through elevated training and skills development and sharing of best practices. We offer people in our community the opportunity to develop their skills and make positive changes in their lives, by either progressing in their existing careers or pursuing an alternative career path.
Most importantly, we promote the importance of sustainable tourism in the way that we operate; socially, economically, and environmentally.Learn more about The Academy
