Why choose Source?
Source is the industry-leading online training course company of its kind. Our courses have been designed by experts who know what is needed to achieve a successful career in luxury housekeeping.
You could choose from a number of courses available, but many often only cover the basics for housekeeping in hotels and offices, usually with a focus on cost-cutting and speed-cleaning. We pride ourselves on offering unique courses, where you’ll learn the most up-to-date cleaning methods that work, proven by top luxury interior professionals that truly care about the finer details – you could be cleaning glassware and cutlery that’s worth more than a car, so extra care needs to be taken.
Our Source courses offer industry certified qualifications backed by professionals, so you know you’re in safe and experienced hands, perfect for setting you up for a successful and enjoyable career.
You might be thinking you don’t need to learn how to clean or do laundry
Maybe you think you already know how to do both or you’re expecting to learn on the job. Unfortunately, that’s what most think, but the reality is quite different. From day one, your job will include long hours and some pretty unglamorous situations. The job is fast-paced, leaving little time to learn and zero room for costly errors.
Expectations within the luxury industry are also incredibly high. This is an industry where cleaning and laundry are a refined and particular skill, and something you will be doing 85% of your time, so you must know what you’re doing and do it right.
