The “School for Butlers & Hospitality,” the first school for butlers in Belgium, is set to open its doors this September in Brussels.
The school will offer a four-week training program, which offers traditional skills as well as a focus on more modern technologies like tablet computing. The cost of the four-week program is €6,980. The school also offers the possibility to hire a butler for one day and an exclusive concierge service.
Vincent Vermeulen graduated from the hotel school Ter Duinen in Koksijde and worked as a butler abroad. "Belgium has so much to offer on an international level. We have our top-notch gastronomy, and we also host several big organisations like NATO and the European Parliament,” he said. “This brings a lot of opportunities for our students. We can offer a traditional butlering course, but also courses for embassy staff. We have been officially recognised by the London's British Butler Institute.”
