Crown is committed to providing its employees with meaningful learning and development opportunities, allowing staff to develop tangible career pathways.
Crown’s dedicated training facility, Crown College, is a Registered Training Organisation which specialises in hospitality, tourism, commercial cookery and management. Crown College enables employees to receive on-site access to world-class training and development programs. The training that employees undertake at Crown College is relevant to their roles and is nationally recognised through its alignment with the Australian Qualification Framework across four levels: Certificate III, Certificate IV, and Diploma and Advanced Diploma qualifications.
Crown College has an impressive 23-year award-winning history in the training sector. In 2018, Crown College Perth was named by the Tourism Council of WA as the Gold winner for Tourism Education and Training for the third year in a row. This is the sixth consecutive year that Crown has won this category across the combined state tourism awards, with Crown College Melbourne winning in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and receiving Hall of Fame status in 2015.
In the 2019 financial year, over 870 employees were enrolled in Certificates III and IV, and Diploma level qualifications, with over 8,500 apprentices and trainees graduating since the inception of Crown College.
In 2015, Crown established a program to provide 500 training places in Certificates II and III through Crown College for retrenched Victorian workers affected by industry restructuring, in partnership with the Victorian Department of Education. The program has since been expanded to Indigenous Australians, people who have been affected by family violence and those who are disadvantaged in the workforce. The initiative continues to progress and has received over 1,000 enquiries since its inception. To date, there are 263 active enrolments in the program and 101 program graduates have gained employment within the hospitality and security industries.
