Hospitality & Catering Apprenticeships

If you want to work in one of the largest industries in the country, a hospitality and catering apprenticeship will teach you the skills you need to work in the sector. 

Whether you want to be front of house or behind the scenes, work in a small café or a large venue with hundreds of diners, an apprenticeship will give you the foundation for a great future career. 

For budding chefs, we offer a commis chef apprenticeship where you will learn how to carry out basic functions in every area of the kitchen which will give you a good grounding in the role and enable you to decide which area you want to specialise in and undertake further training in in the future. 

And, for those wanting a more public-facing role, the hospitality team member apprenticeship covers a range of roles including food and beverage service, reception, reservations and working at conferences and banquets, as well as housekeeping, concierge and guest services. 

During your apprenticeship you’ll combine working with studying towards a set of occupational standards set by employers, learning-on-the-job alongside experienced colleagues in the workplace rather than sitting in a classroom all day – and because you’ll be doing a real job you’ll get paid too!   

What’s more, throughout your training you will be supported by college staff who will work closely with your employer to ensure that the skills you are learning are what is required by their business and that you will achieve your full potential and career aspirations. 

We have excellent relationships with local employers and develop training to meet the needs of their businesses, so you can be assured you’ll gain the skills that they are looking for in their employees – and, if you impress them during your training, you may even be offered a job when you’ve completed apprenticeship. 

And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? if you’re already employed in the hospitality industry and want to improve your skills and boost your promotion prospects you can benefit from apprenticeship training too – just ask your employer to email and a member of the team will contact them to discuss your training further. 

Apprenticeship vacancies are being added to our website all the time – take a look at the latest opportunities here
