ITP’s Youth Career Initiative (YCI) offers young people who are particularly vulnerable the opportunity to gain the skills and experience they need to take the first step in their career.

The three-month programme starts with classroom training in basic hospitality and English language skills. Then, through our unique partnership with world-leading hotel companies, we offer hands-on experience within the hotel industry.

We support young people, aged 18-24, who have faced a wide range of barriers, including people from low income families, those living without parental care, survivors of human trafficking, refugees and people with disabilities.

YCI creates an opportunity for both professional and personal development, equipping our graduates with the practical skills and self-belief to reach for greater goals.
