Students have progression opportunity towards a bachelor degree within the institution.


Craft-Based Learning

Managers who have done their subordinates’ jobs, know exactly what it involves and therefore have a real advantage.

At Les Roches Marbella we ensure that our students are well-trained in Kitchen, Service and Rooms Division.

These three areas are taught outside a traditional class environment as students learn by doing. This learning style is called hands-on or craft-based learning. Hands-on learning is critical to gain the knowledge and skills you need to lead a hospitality organization in the future. This is the part of the program that many students enjoy most, where they learn leadership skills and build confidence.

The kitchens, dining rooms and rooms division areas are equipped exactly as they would be in a top hotel or restaurant. This is the perfect opportunity to learn how to work effectively in a team and learn to communicate between your fellow students and faculty before going on your first internship.
