HIT Training partners with BII to provide hospitality apprenticeships

Hospitality industry training group HIT Training has partnered with the British Institute of Innkeeping (BII) to become an accredited provider of two apprenticeships.

Designed for pub, bar, club, hotel and restaurant staff, the training company courses are open to anyone over the age of 16 and not in full-time education, and will help those looking to enter the industry by equipping them with key skills such as how to prepare, serve and clear.

There are also courses open to people already working in hospitality who are looking to improve their abilities, while the provider also offers a BII Licensed Hospitality Management Advanced Apprenticeship to anyone looking to progress into a management or supervisory role.

Commenting on the new partnership, managing director of HIT Training Jill Whittaker praised the role apprenticeships play in allowing people to train while they work and improve their skills.

She said: "Joining forces to offer this training will make undertaking an apprenticeship even more accessible to those who are interested in a professional career in the hospitality industry."

HIT Training offers many food and beverage-themed apprenticeships, including work-based learning schemes and staff development programmes for people at all levels of the industry.

The news comes amid recent calls in the industry and government for increased apprenticeships and improved access to hospitality training schemes for young people.
