The Hospitality and Catering sector is normally fast-moving, vibrant, energetic and exciting. It is extensive and diverse with outlets such as hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, school catering, contract catering, events and entertainment venues to mention a few. It comprises large national and international hotel groups, high-end restaurants and bars down to quirky coffee shops.
Arguably, the Hospitality and Catering Industry has been one of the hardest sectors hit, due to the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic. Many businesses and outlets have been forced to close temporarily. In such uncertain times, we have seen many of these business owners change their business strategy, become innovative to change the focus of their business to continue serving their customers; understanding their market, offering take away services, whilst ensuring the health and safety of their clients. Even in these difficult times, we have seen growth within the sector, where business owners are tenacious, energetic; continuing to invest in recruiting apprentices and developing the skills of their current teams.
We support the full range of careers within hospitality with the relevant apprenticeships. We currently support apprenticeships in all areas of the industry, i.e. Food and Beverage, Front Office, Housekeeping, Kitchen, Supervisory and Management supporting Commis Chefs, Hospitality Team Members, Leaders and Managers. Apprentices learn technical skills as well as softer skills, both of which will support their career development.
