How Do Hospitality Apprenticeships Vary?
|What Types Of Hospitality Apprenticeship Jobs Are There? So, we have said that jobs in the hospitality industry cover a variety of roles. Let’s now take a look at the types of jobs you could be doing when you decide to take on apprenticeships in hospitality.
The whole industry is centred around providing excellent customer service - from making sure a hotel room is clean and tidy, to serving up the best cakes and pastries to hungry customers. Hospitality Apprenticeships are often called Catering and Hospitality Apprenticeships because, whatever pathway you choose to take your apprenticeship in, you could be working directly with food and beverages. You might also be dealing with people enjoying short hotel breaks or you could even be doing corporate hospitality jobs. It really is down to your preference and where you think you could really develop your skills and put them to best use.

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!
