Apprenticeships in both hospitality and catering are to be showcased as part of the government’s Career Starter Apprenticeships campaign.
The sector joins the likes of construction, healthcare and education as part of the flagship campaign, which will see materials promoted to schools and colleges across the country. These will feature apprenticeship success stories provided by training providers, such as HIT Training and Umbrella Training, and businesses, including Compass Group, Hilton, Greene King, Mitchells & Butlers, Pizza Express and Whitbread.
Kate Nicholls, chief executive at UKHospitality, which pushed for hospitality and catering apprentices to be included in the government’s campaign, said: “Apprenticeships play a critical role in developing future generations of talent and offer an exciting way to learn practical skills on the job.
“Working with the Department for Education to promote these career opportunities is significant and I’m pleased we’re able to partner on this important initiative.”
