HOSPA secures Savoy Educational Trust grant for new course development

HOSPA is delighted to announce that it has successfully secured a grant from the Savoy Educational Trust, with additional investment from HOSPA, to develop a course for the sector in Asset Management.

The course, which will be delivered online in partnership with HOSPA’s professional development partner arena4finance, will provide an opportunity for all those working in the hospitality and related sectors seeking to develop their knowledge in an increasingly important area.

The course content will be designed to enable learners to develop outstanding analytical, numerical and interpretation skills. Participants will engage with theory, examples and case studies to develop their knowledge of the sector and to be able to interpret complex financial information based on hotel financial statements and data as well as to understand the underlying principles of operating structures.

Commenting on the Savoy Educational Trust award, HOSPA Head of Professional Development Debra Adams said:

“We are greatly indebted to the Savoy Educational Trust for their generosity in supporting HOSPA over the years enabling us to continue to offer leading edge resources and professional development activities. This latest addition to our course offerings, which currently include hospitality finance and accounting and more recently revenue management, ensures that HOSPA maintains its position as the leading Association for all those pursing careers in the commercial support functions in the hospitality industry.”


David Bridge, Chair of the newly formed HOSPA Asset Management Advisory Group added

“This is a very exciting time for HOSPA, we know that good asset managers are much in demand in the hotel and related operational real estate sectors , and we are delighted to be able to work with the industry, who have already supported HOSPA , to help the Association  grow talent for the future for this sector and other operational real estate sectors.”

The Asset Management course will be available for enrolment from September 2020.
