Industry bodies join forces for National Apprenticeship Week events

The Hospitality Guild is working with People 1st, PACE, the Academy of Culinary Arts and the Institute of Hospitality to develop events for next week's National Apprenticeship Week.

The bodies are to deliver a range of complimentary events throughout the country, including interactive workshops, seminars, employer surgeries, and online activities.

Suzy Jackson, executive director of the Hospitality Guild, said the events would have a broad appeal.

"We know apprenticeships make a fantastic contribution to businesses in our sector, and research has shown that four in ten employers find apprentices far more productive than hiring new staff, while 49% say they made them more competitive," she added.

"Learners stand to gain too with amazing career development opportunity and a chance to earn while they are getting trained to the standard the employer needs.

The Hospitality Guild is working with the Institute of Hospitality's Passion 4 Hospitality event in London on Monday 11 March, where it will officially launch the new Higher Apprenticeship in Hospitality Management.

Meanwhile, People 1st and PACE will hold a learning and development forum in Nottingham on 12-13 March. It will cover issues such as apprenticeships, promoting career pathways through centres of excellence, and sustainability.
