Trigon Hotels Launches Trainee Management Development Programme

Trigon Hotels has launched its Trainee Management Development Programme (TMDP). The programme will run for 12 months and is accredited by the City & Guilds with a Level 3 Award in Hospitality Supervision and Leadership Principles.


The team members at Trigon taking part in the programme are Diana Bucko, Chloe Ryan, Rebecca Harrington, Kate O'Riordan, Priyanka Serrao and Mario Furlan.

The modules will include lectures on Leadership, Communication, Time Management, Finance, Human Resources, Sales and Marketing, Delegation and Complaint Handling and Presentation Skills.

The programme will be funded by Trigon Hotels and part funded by the CETB Bishopstown Campus.

Trigon Hotels, which includes The Metropole Hotel and The Cork International Hotel, was one of the first hotel companies in Ireland to offer an accredited City & Guilds programme for their team members.


Training and development of team members is key to the culture within the Trigon Group and programmes like these are proving to be a vital fit into staff growth and development across the hotels.

Statement By Managing Director Of Trigon Hotels

Managing director of Trigon Hotels Aaron Mansworth stated, "The programme which is offered to internal team members within Trigon Hotels exposes people working within the company to all hotels and to all departments. It is wonderful to see our team building on their careers in hospitality. There are so many opportunities available to people who chose a career in hospitality. There are so many facets to the hospitality sector which can lead to careers in operations, administration, HR and much more. Through this Trainee Management Programme we hope our team members will develop their skills and strengths."

Statement By Strategic Director Of HR

Kathleen Linehan, strategic director of HR, stated, "We are very excited to be launching our revised TMDP programme which includes mentorship sessions with our senior leadership team on several lectures. A very special thank you to Deirdre Staples, our learning and development specialists who worked with our heads Of departments and Karen Healy in developing the new modules. This programme will encourage our students to tap into skills and proactively craft their jobs for the future creating a culture where they can flourish, thrive and have a long-term future with the company."
