Hotel Future will provide new training academy in the North-west

A new hospitality academy which intends to provide professional and vocational training within the real-world of a four-star hotel is set to open in Oldham in 2015.

The 120-bedroom Hotel Future, which will be officially launched at a reception attended by leading members of the hospitality industry and government in London on Wednesday 17 October, will operate as a charitable trust and provide opportunities for 300 new apprentices every year.

The initiative is being led by the Manchester Hoteliers Association with the support of Oldham Council and major hotel groups, including Radisson Edwardian Hotels, Hilton Worldwide and the Rezidor Hotel Group.

Costing £40m to develop, the hotel will be located in a new civic square in Oldham, adjacent to the refurbished Queen Elizabeth Hall conference and meeting centre.
