North West a ‘key region’ in M&B apprenticeships drive

Apprentice chef Charlie CraddockPUB  and restaurant operator Mitchells & Butlers – the company behind All Bar One, Toby Carvery and Miller & Carter – has targeted the North West in its drive to create 5,000 apprenticeships over the next three years.

Plans to expand the programme were revealed in conjunction with the launch of its Sharing our Rising Stars campaign, which celebrates hard-working apprentices.

Jan Smallbone, director of learning and talent development at Mitchells & Butlers, said: “Our mixture of apprenticeships ensures that there’s something for everyone who is interested in a career in hospitality and supports those that want to improve on their academic results too.

“With over 22 apprenticeship opportunities available in the North West, we are definitely targeting it as a key region.”

There are currently four different apprenticeship programmes open to all school leavers – Bar & Waiting, Chef, Culinary, and Hospitality Management Development.

The Bar & Waiting Apprenticeship, Chef, and Culinary Apprenticeships see young people gain a Level 2 qualification in their chosen field within the first 12 months. They are also offered the opportunity to progress to higher level apprenticeships up to Level 5.

Mitchells & Butlers Hospitality Management Development Apprenticeship is a three-year programme designed to fast-track apprentices into supervisory and management roles.

It is also one of the first schemes in the industry to offer a combined programme that ensures apprentices gain experience working in customer facing roles alongside learning in the kitchen.

Apprentices can then decide which role best suits their career aspirations whilst being provided with the opportunity to take on new challenges.
