We believe people make IKEA unique and the possibility for people to grow, both as individuals and in their professional roles, is important to us. Through working with apprenticeship offer, our apprentices have increased in confidence, taken responsibility for their own development, stepped out of their comfort zones and are embracing a growth mindset. Collaborating and co-creating with Lifetime has been key in building a relevant and meaningful apprenticeship programme.

I am delighted with our apprenticeship partnership with Lifetime Training and what it’s done for Mitchells & Butlers. By investing into a tailored and comprehensive approach to apprenticeship learning and development, we have enabled the business to thrive and dramatically reduce turnover in that specific population; which we are confident will have a sustainable effect across the business over time. Not only that, but we have managed to gain a brand new pipeline of young talent that will become the lifeblood of the business.

Apprentices are better because they learn how to do their job really well, and our businesses are better because our apprentices are bringing new ideas and great ways of working into their workplaces! We couldn’t do it without our great partnership with Lifetime Training who provide the expertise to train our apprentices to be the best they can be.

Apprenticeships help to reduce team turnover, increase employee engagement and provide us with the opportunity to grow our own talent by investing in our people and supporting their ambitions. Apprenticeships should be considered as a real option as they provide valuable skills to help build a career in hospitality

Apprenticeships help the company build the skills and experience of our team members, which in turn ensures we can find our future managers and leaders from within. They encourage our team members to think of their position not as a job but as a genuine opportunity for a career in hospitality. Apprenticeships also demonstrate to our employees that we believe in them and that we want to invest in their future.

The difference between Lifetime and other training providers is that they are very good at being able to tailor specifically to our needs. They have worked with us to understand our values, to understand our proposition, to know our products and services and build that into all of our training programmes.

The Aldi apprenticeship programme delivered in partnership with Lifetime has added great value to Aldi as an employer. I first-hand have seen the significantly positive impact it has had to our business and stores. Over the past 3 years, I have overseen 14 apprentices that have flourished into competent, qualified and extremely driven managers. We’ve had managers graduate to both Deputy and Assistant Manager, so with up to 40 stores being built in Bathgate region alone over the next years, this programme has provided us with our leaders of tomorrow.
