As an employer in the hospitality industry, offering an apprenticeship is a great way to train new staff and for your business to benefit from an employee with the latest sector skills and knowledge.
Whether you’re a small café or a largecatering organisation, an apprenticeship will enable your employee to work alongside existing staff and learn on-the-job from others who have experience in the industry.
With two apprenticeships on offer – commis chef and hospitality team member – the training will ensure that your business needs are met, whether your new member of staff is behind the scenes or in a front of house role
Apprentices will combine working for your business with studying at college – usually one day per week – and will train in the Academy restaurant, at the Metro One campus in the city centre – which has a professional training kitchen equipped with industry-standard catering kit and a 42-seater fully-licensed restaurant which is open to the public and serves a range of delicious lunches and evening meals to diners during term time.
What’s more, both you and the apprentice will be supported throughout the training by a college assessor who will visit the workplace to make sure your apprentice is meeting their targets and that you are both getting the most out of the training.
The college has a dedicated recruitment team to support employers in appointing an apprentice – including advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates for interview; and with a talent pool of enthusiastic young people waiting for a business apprenticeship you can be sure you’ll be employing the right person for the job!
And apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff! If you want to upskill and develop existing members of your team they can benefit from apprenticeship training too – email email@example.com and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your requirements further.
