The ONLY Training Academy In The North West!!
Our Story begins now with your help, we hope this is the beginning of a great enterprise which we can give back to the community by providing an affordable and easier way of training if eligible which will allow different customers with different backgrounds and different circumstances the opportunity to join in the Gaming Industry and to provide a lifelong career either here or abroad.
The name 'Blue Chip' was decided because of the importance of prestigious and upper-market companies riding on the stock market with this significance and so with using 'chip' it seemed apt with the business we are in...and so 'Blue Chip' was born.
Our Vision is to see a Casino Industry which reflects the professionalism ,expertise ,skill and flair of the past.
Over the last decade we have seen these skills diminish and the Industry has now become diluted with inexperienced trainers and companies who have produced inadequate training and unprofessional croupiers all for the sake of extortionate monetary gain.
So, having discussed this at length and being work colleagues in the past, we decided to commit and do something about it by forming our own training academy to give back what the Industry has given to us throughout our careers.
Our philosophy is to provide an amazing service through our knowledge and expertise of the Industry by joining forces with our contacts to be able to make available a free training course for all UK residents ,so , we can now provide a service which blows our competition out of the water.
We also believe that information is paramount and a customer support service is key and so we will be at hand to answer any queries at any time, we serve you.
Meet the Team
Our Team below is relatively small for now with visions of expansion in the near future. But great things come in small packages at first, right?
Our philosophy is to deliver our own wealth of knowledge we have through excellence and professionalism giving everyone an equal opportunity to perform to the best of their abilities.
Internal Quality Assurer and Operations Manager
I have been working in the casino industry for 8 years around the Greater Manchester area, during this time I have learned many aspects of casino operation.
Before this I spent a year in the employment and skills sector with Corridor Manchester and have built up an extensive network of employment support services, recruitment agencies and casino industry professionals.
I am a CAVA certified vocational assessor and V1 certified IQA as well as a qualified TEFL (teaching english as a foreign language) teacher.
My main life goal is to use my experience to support people into rewarding careers and provide a quality recruitment option for casinos that may have been let down in the past.
Peter John Taylor
Lead Trainer and Vocational Assessor
At 46 years of age I have been in the Casino Industry for nearly thirty years having worked overseas in the Middle-East and SE Asia for several years as well as in the UK becoming well known for my training and professionalism.
My career began in the casino industry at the age of 18 in Manchester and then at first travelling to the south of England becoming a junior pit-boss at the age of 21.
I then headed to Israel to manage casino gaming ships at the age of 25 for 5 years so I have actually had quite a colourful career so far.
For almost the last 20 years i have been mentoring and training croupiers at my current position in casinos and i will continue to do so for as long as time allows.
To add to my knowledge I have recently gained NVQ Level certification to allow me to become a vocational assessor in the workplace further expanding my tutoring.
Vocational Assessor And Training Officer
I was 20 years of age when I started my journey as a croupier in the casino industry.
Before I had joined a training school I was broke and going nowhere in life.
Fast forward 21 years and now I can look back and reflect on the great friends I made not only from the UK but internationally, also the incredible destinations that I was fortunate to see whilst working on board the cruise ships.
These are memories I will cherish for the rest of my life. I would encourage anyone to become a Croupier because the possibilities are endless.
