Novus creates Premier Inn training facilities for Derwen College

Derwen College works with young people with learning difficulties and disabilities. In partnership with Whitbread, the college has provided students with opportunities for practical work in Premier Inns since 2013.

As part of Novus’ Changing Lives programme, a Training Centre – an exact replica of a suite of Premier Inn rooms – was created at the college to provide students with the opportunity to complete practical housekeeping skills and ultimately help them improve their chances of gaining employment.

A social media boost

Incorporated into Novus’ social media channels to promote the initiative, views have exceeded 10,000 in just a few weeks.
