Firm launches apprenticeship scheme

Firm launches apprenticeship scheme

Young people looking for work have been given a boost with the start of a new apprenticeship scheme by the De Vere Academy of Hospitality.

The firm and its partners have set up the scheme, which will train apprentices for at least one year.

Before people can take up their apprenticeship proper, they will have to first get through an Access to Apprenticeships course, which has been designed to give them a better feel for what they will be doing.

The De Vere Academy of Hospitality has been liaising on the structure and content of its apprenticeship scheme with the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) to ensure its robustness.

The programme is set to be officially launched at the start of February and will be a boost for people looking for travel jobs and catering and hospitality work.

Kellie Rixon, managing director at De Vere Academy, said: "At a time of increasing youth unemployment, the De Vere Academy now has an even more robust structure that will allow more and more young people to become stars in the UK catering, hospitality, and service sectors, and we look forward to continue working closely with all of our valued partners who support us in our joint initiative.

"We are grateful for this further collaboration, support, and development being undertaken with NAS and we look forward to the continued strength of our relationship."
