By creating a TMR, our mission is to ensure all staff from casual to full time, develop and acquire the correct skill sets aligned to the AA standards of hospitality in order to deliver first class service. To achieve this, Celtic College will become a brand of its own with recognised qualifications that employees can use to aid them in advancement within the resort, or elsewhere within the hospitality sector. By focusing on our people we aim to:
