We teach students at all levels and do not require any prior knowledge. However, a good command of the English language is essential.
The Butler Valet School provides unique special training as we are able to provide so much more being able to train all our students with a ”hands on” course. This is practical training working in the real environment for a working butler, us showing you the right way to do things and then you doing it, seeing, understanding and remembering. Sitting just in a classroom at a desk is not the best training to learn these skills one needs to be doing them.
Prospective students can come and visit us prior to courses if they wish (by arrangement). We can show them what previous classes have done and achieved and also some of our previous daily course programmes.
We are able to provide training for Yachts Interior crew, either here in the UK or onboard their particular yacht if required,we have found in the past these courses being very beneficial to owners and their guests. .
Please contact us to arrange this for you.
