Scotland’s biggest managed operator G1 Group has launched its own modern apprenticeship (MA) programme,
which will give young adults a chance todevelop their skills and gain a recognised qualification. The programme can be completed in any of the company’s 50-plus bars, restaurants, casinos and hotels across Scotland. Courses range from five to 12 months, with all those who complete the qualification gaining an SVQ. G1 Group head of talent and development Rachel James said: “We believe it is extremely important we provide all employees with as many opportunities as possible to achieve their potential – access to additional qualifications and training play a vital role in this. Our MA programme will enable us to develop and direct those young people with an interest in a career in the food and drinks industry. We employ more than 1,800 individuals across Scotland. Through this programme we are giving young people a chance to harness their potential.” Last week, G1 Group gave pupils at two Glasgow schools a taste of working in hospitality, with candidates coached by G1’s HR team in preparation for interviews and successful applicants going on to train at the company’s Corinthian Club.
