Spirit Pub Company has continued its commitment to training and developing young people by announcing the launch of a new kitchen apprenticeship scheme.
The ApprentiChef programme is available for young and aspiring people that are looking to expand and develop their skillset and begin a career within hospitality, with the intention of progressing through to kitchen manager.
The 30-month programme will see candidates take on a number of training exercises from leadership development through to project management.
Lynne Kennedy, head of food quality training at Spirit, said: “This is a great opportunity to grow our own kitchen managers of the future. With the school leaving age increasing and more people looking at apprenticeships as an alternative to university, we believe the ApprentiChef programme offers an exciting career path for young people who are looking to get into the hospitality industry.
“The programme culminates in qualifications that are the equivalent to ten good-grade GCSEs and offers the prospect of moving into a management position in one of our pubs.”
The ApprentiChef programme joins Spirit’s suite of five apprenticeship programmes, with more than 1,000 candidates in learning, a number they are looking to almost double over the year.
