Debrett's Modern Finishing School

Modern finishing school - Girl recording a video CV

Students are equipped with the skills, poise and confidence to make the most of professional and social environments in the modern world.

Being invited back to a second interview, to the next party, to a private dinner or even being asked sincerely to keep in touch are the fruits of social skills not always mastered in formal education.

Employers want recruits to have the polish, professionalism and people skills to match their impressive academic achievements - all key components in your early steps on the career ladder and in wider society.

Format

Debrett's Modern Finishing School offers three levels of qualification: Foundation, Intermediate and Diploma.

Each level involves five days of study at Debrett's, with additional preparation and tasks to be completed in the students' own time, prior to progression to the next level.

Up to ten students per programme

Delivered over five days at Debrett's in Mayfair or five days and four nights as a residential programme
