The Hospitality and Catering sector is a fast-moving, vibrant, energetic and exciting place to learn. The industry can be segmented into 4 main sectors: Food and Beverage, Accommodation, Travel and Tourism and Entertainment and Recreation. Although within these sectors there is significant overlap to provide seamless customer experiences. It is an extensive and diverse industry with outlets ranging from large national and international hotels to small boutique hotels; high-end restaurants to pubs and nightclubs, coffee shops to cafes; school catering to contract catering; events and entertainment venues, to mention just a few.
Why look for Apprentices now?
Arguably, the Hospitality and Catering Industry was one of the hardest sectors hit due to the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic. Many businesses and outlets were forced to close temporarily, change their business strategy and become innovative to change the focus of their business in order to strive and ultimately survive. Despite the last few years though we have seen growth within the sector, and now more than ever businesses are continuing to invest in recruiting apprentices and developing the skills of their current teams to ensure the industry is strong and competitive.
We support the full range of careers within hospitality with the relevant apprenticeships. We currently support apprenticeships in Food and Beverage, Front Office, Housekeeping, Kitchen roles both junior and supervisory, Hospitality Team Members, Leaders and Managers.
Apprentices learn technical skills as well as softer skills, both of which will support their career development.
