During National Apprenticeship Week, Mitchells & Butlers, the company behind leading pub and restaurant brands All Bar One, Harvester,Toby Carvery, Browns and Sizzling Pubs, together with Lifetime Training unveiled an innovative and unique new apprentice scheme designed to recruit its managers of the future.
Leading the way in the hospitality industry, this career advancing apprenticeship scheme was launched by BBC Apprentice finalist Saira Khan, who recognises the importance of inspiring young people and unlocking their future potential.
Combining practical, on the job training with study, the new scheme is the first in the hospitality sector to offer apprenticeships from 16 years of age, across front and back of house roles. This pioneering framework gives young people the platform to learn valuable skills while building a career with M&B and one day could see them running a million pound business.
The new scheme is set to begin recruiting its first apprentices this March and will add to the 1,400 apprentices currently working across Mitchells & Butlers.
The scheme, known as the Hospitality Management Development Apprenticeship has been created in partnership with Lifetime Training. The programme is open to 16-19 year olds and will deliver all the underpinning knowledge, skills and behaviours that new recruits need for a successful career in the hospitality industry - in both front and back of house roles. It is a three year programme that will support team members throughout their development – from Intermediate (Level 2) through to Higher (Level 4) apprenticeship completion. There is also the potential to move on to degree level qualifications, offering young people a real alternative to university.
