By joining Dorchester Collection you can look forward to attending many innovative classroom and work-based learning events within our very own Academy. Here’s an overview of some of the learning opportunities you could attend:


Engage is our unique induction programme. The first days of your journey with Dorchester Collection will be hosted by your learning & development team. You will meet your general manager and lots of other team members, and will learn about the history of your hotel with a detailed tour of all the rooms, public areas and the all-important back-of-house areas. Engage is the very start of our employee engagement journey, where you will learn our mission and values and all about our iconic collection of hotels, as well as completing any necessary admin to make sure you are comfortable and prepared to begin in your department.
