Cork College of FET- Bishopstown Campus is delighted to partner with The Montenotte to create two courses to develop their leadership team.

The Supervisory Development Programme (SDP) and Management Development Programme (MDP) have been co- designed by the Skills to Advance Team in Bishopstown Campus with the Learning and Development team in the Montenotte Hotel.

The SDP and MDP are both funded under Skills to Advance. Skills to Advance is SOLAS funding which aims to help business to upskill and reskill their staff by providing highly subsidised training.

Frits Potgieter, General Manager at The Montenotte notes,

“At The Montenotte, we believe in lifelong learning. Our core values – ambition, courage, passion, and integrity – are fuelled by a constant pursuit of knowledge and growth.  This partnership with Cork College of FET- Bishopstown Campus exemplifies this philosophy.  By investing in the educational development of our team, we are not only empowering their individual journeys, but ensuring we can continue to offer exceptional experiences for our guests. We are excited to embark on this educational journey and believe this initiative will benefit both our team and the entire Cork hospitality industry.”

Valerie Cowman, Manager, Bishopstown Campus, congratulated the  learners for taking the step to enrol in the programme

Well done on taking the leap and signing up for this programme. It will be of immense benefit to you as you develop in your leadership career. Best of luck on the road ahead and I wish you every success.”

She went on to praise The Montenotte for investing in their staff learning and development.

I commend The Montenotte for supporting their staff to develop and upskill for their role. We in Cork College of FET are immensely proud to be working with you on these programmes. Cork College of FET is committed to working with business in Cork to support staff learning and development needs.
