Domestic and Caretaker Couple Training Course Description
Our training method is based on experience, interactivity, sharing and conviviality.
The Morgan Mallet School Domestic Couple Training is a study programme designed to help couples learn to effectively manage their future life as a caretaker couple within a prestigious property. It is a comprehensive programme that covers many aspects of managing a property, castle, villa, chalet, mansion or large luxury flat.
The training of domestic couples begins with an assessment of the couple's current situation with our training officer. This includes an assessment of the couple's strengths and weaknesses, as well as their communication and problem-solving skills.
During this assessment, the couple and the trainer will also discuss their goals and motivations. This is an important step in the process as it allows the couple and our trainers to identify areas of skill that need to be developed and to create a suitable training plan.
The next step in the caretaker/domestic couple's training process is to create the application form (training agreement) and funding for the training. The training officer will accompany you in this step. See details below.
The third step of the process is the course of the training. This consists of helping and accompanying the future domestic couple to develop skills during the 12 and a half days with two Morgan Mallet School trainers. See programme below.
Finally, the training process of the domestic couple ends with a review of the couple's progress. During this phase, the couple and the trainers will exchange successes and achievements since the beginning of the training.
