Apprenticeships are the smart way to gain a qualification and to earn while you learn, offering a paid job along with promotion possibilities from day one


Umbrella Training’s Sam Coulstock


provides the low-down on apprentices What is an apprenticeship?


Apprenticeships are a great way to earn


and learn. You can be fully employed and study towards a work-based qualification at the same time. They range in levels and are reflective of your job role. Along with your apprenticeship, you will also complete mathematics and English qualifications.


Is it a ‘real’ qualification? Yes, and you will receive a certificate


from the Institute of Apprenticeships when you complete the course. You can achieve a distinction in your apprenticeship, which


shows future employers your advanced level of skill and knowledge in your area of expertise.


What type of business offers them?


All businesses can offer apprenticeships, no matter how small or large they are. All apprentices have to reach a certain standard, and employers and training


providers work together to help reach that. How long do they last?


It depends on the level, but most last from 12 to 18 months.


Why should someone become an apprentice? Why not become an apprentice? You can earn a good salary, learn from the experts already in the role, get a gold standard of education and be debit-free. It’s a no-brainer.


Y


ou are most definitely in demand. The industry needs hundreds of thousands of new recruits and is being incentivised to invest in people like you through the apprenticeship levy. Operators pay into a central fund and then use those funds to invest in your training. There really has never been a better time


to forge a career in hospitality. Hotel and catering apprenticeships are available across many departments – for chefs, food and drink service, housekeepers, and in sales and marketing roles, banqueting and conferencing, events, functions and outside catering. Because the apprenticeship standards have been designed with the help of employers, apprentices fit into their job role effectively and can develop the appropriate skills and secure ongoing employment. All learning and assessment is conducted on the job, allowing you to remain focused on your work without the interruption of off-site study. This pleases employers, too. Apprenticeships are available to all current


employees or new entrants into the hospitality and catering sector, aged between 16 and 70, with a range of entry levels to help suit your interests and build on your current skills. To start an apprenticeship you have to be


aged 16 or over, work full-time or part-time in the hospitality and catering sector, and have a contract of employment from your employer. You also need to be resident in England and not in full-time education. If you already have a degree or equivalent qualification in this country or abroad, you may not be eligible unless the skills conferred by the apprenticeship are different from your degree. Your employer will specify what their entry


requirements are for each specific job role and what qualifications, if any, or experience is required.

Apprenticeship standards New apprenticeship standards have been developed for all parts of the hospitality industry. They form progressive career pathways, incorporating the knowledge, skills and behaviour employers have defined for today’s industry. The standards apply across the sector, allowing


organisations to incorporate their own ways of working while ensuring the apprenticeship meets a national standard.
