|Introduction To Hospitality Apprenticeships|
|The beauty of Hospitality Apprenticeships is that whatever area you want to focus on - whether that be catering, hotels, beverages or customer service, to name just a few - many different types of hospitality apprenticeship have been designed so that you can really learn on the job, earning money, developing skills and gaining qualifications in your focus area.
The UK hospitality industry is made up of a variety of roles and responsibilities and it employs well over 1.5 million people in hospitality jobs - in fact, the industry is one of the United Kingdom’s top employers. As people leave the hospitality industry due to retirement and for other reasons, the constant recruitment of skilled young people into exciting jobs in the hospitality industry is essential.
Hospitality apprenticeships mean you will have the necessary skills to ensure the UK hospitality industry can continue to thrive. If you are looking to work in an industry where, whatever role you are employed in, you are ensuring a happy and memorable experience for customers and guests, then making the decision to do apprenticeships in hospitality will be a great step forward and you should find jobs in hospitality very rewarding.

What Is Involved In Hospitality Apprenticeship Jobs?
|By doing an Apprenticeship, not only will you receive on the job training and earn while you learn, you will also have a mentor who can guide and advise you, give you feedback and help you decide what are the best steps for advancing in hospitality jobs and careers.
Some apprenticeships might be completed exclusively on the job with assessments carried out in the workplace, whilst others might require you to undergo some ‘classroom’ learning in a training centre or online.
How long your hospitality apprenticeship takes to complete depends on your training centre and your employer - the type of role you are doing and the number of hours you are working per week. With some employers, it is possible to do part time apprenticeships in hospitality and these will take longer to complete than if you are working full time. Apprenticeships can take between 1-4 years to complete.
Obviously, hospitality jobs and careers are not your typical 9 to 5, Monday to Friday jobs. Hospitality Apprenticeship jobs will see you working day times, evenings, weekends and holidays. For many people, though, this is the beauty of jobs in the hospitality industry. They love the variety!
