Our training package is designed to cover the basics and kick-start a person’s career in hospitality and catering. All our pre-employment training lasts for one week, to give you a fast track route into employment with qualifications to improve your CV.

In addition to these qualifications, you will receive support with job applications, updating your CV and interview coaching during your time with us.

The qualifications taught in our training are:

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 Certificate

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.

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.
