Anglesey Pub Celebrates Vocational Learning for National Apprenticeship Week

31st Mar 2016

The White Eagle in Rhoscolyn has been celebrating the value of vocational learners following National Apprenticeship Week (14th- 18th March).

The site, operated by 16 Hospitality, offers both young people and mature learners the opportunity to undertake a hospitality training programme, known as The Hub. Offering some of the most varied and ‘hands on’ hospitality training in the UK, The Hub is designed to help combat the lack of skilled chefs and service staff in the region, as well as the hospitality industry as a whole. This follows a recent report from the Recruitment and Employee Confederation (REC) and KPMG.

Edward Barlow, Managing Director of 16 Hospitality, said:

“We are pleased to be able to offer such a strong hospitality training programme in each of our sites. In light of recent reports which suggest that apprenticeships are generally ‘failing’, particularly for young people, we pride ourselves on delivering not only clear and structured learning day-to-day, but also unique external opportunities with selected partners, offering our ‘Rookies’ a well-rounded learning experience.

“The vision that underpins everything that we do as a company is all about providing a superior customer service and a unique experience for each of our customers, so growing a strong service team at each of our sites which share that vision means that we can continuously provide a unique and memorable experience to each person that comes through our doors.”

National Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and is designed to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy. During the annual awareness week, events are held across the country to promote both the value of apprenticeships and to encourage more people to undertake vocational learning.
