On Monday 28th January, we are running a one-week Hospitality course aimed at people who have little or no experience in the sector.

Learners in Hull will receive two work-related qualifications and a free Food Hygiene certificate which will help them understand the importance of food hygiene in the workplace.

Why work in the Hospitality sector?
Hospitality is a growing industry and is currently the fourth largest employer in the UK, it is believed that a job is advertised within the sector every 2.5 seconds. In Hull last year,  5,780 jobs were advertised in the Hospitality sector alone. 

The sector is ideal for those wanting a job with flexibility and the opportunity to earn tips. The top roles associated with the sector are;

  • Travel and tourism 
  • Hotel roles

What can you expect from our training?
Our new training package is designed to cover the basics and kick-start a person’s career in hospitality and catering. It features the following two qualifications;

Level 1 Award in Introduction to Employment in Hospitality
Employment in hospitality is all about exploring the industry and its career opportunities. You will learn what good customer service in hospitality is, including the benefits to the company. It will teach you the basics of serving food and drinks to customers and working as part of a food and drink team.

Level 1 in Equality and Diversity
This qualification looks at British Values and helps people understand the differences between equality and diversity. Learners will explore stereotypes, discrimination and prejudice and be able to identify the bodies who work on these equality issues.

Basic Food Hygiene
Food safety law requires businesses to provide food handlers with food hygiene training, which teaches them how to apply proper handling, storage, and cleaning techniques. These good practices prevent customers from suffering food poisoning and allergic reactions, help minimise food waste, and boost workplace efficiency.

Are you eligible?
To apply for this course you need to be over 19 and have lived in the UK or EU for the last three consecutive years (since April 2015).

You either need to be unemployed looking for work and on benefit, or be employment earning less than £15,760. Eligibility will be determined at our Information Advice and Guidance appointment.
