Since 2004, our IHG® Academy has been helping young people around the world gain valuable employment and life skills through work experience, internships and apprenticeships alongside some of the world’s best hoteliers. In the past eight years alone, partnering with local education providers and community organisations, more than 80,000 people have been trained and mentored through the IHG Academy.

Through our 2030 Journey to Tomorrow responsible business plan, we’ve set a clear focus on caring for communities and specifically to improve the lives of 30 million people through supporting economic and social change. 

To ensure our IHG Academy can make an even bigger difference in helping achieve our aims, we’re excited to have recently launched the IHG Skills Academy: a new best-in-class digital learning platform. Teaming up with hospitality schools, NGOs and other partners, the IHG Skills Academy offers those facing barriers to employment the opportunity to enjoy personalised, immersive experiences with access to self-serve educational resources.

The IHG Skills Academy portal is open-access and completely free. It was built with accessibility in mind, so anyone from anywhere globally can experience the educational benefits of the site from any device. To start your learning journey, complete the below form so we can verify your email address.
