The hospitality industry is huge all over the world and especially here in Wales. It offers a wide range of careers from a chef, a bartender, to working in a cafe. The industry covers hotels, restaurants, cafes, fast food outlets, pubs and clubs to name a few.
At Cambrian Training, we can offer hospitality apprenticeships to suit all areas of the industry; from foundation level to higher apprenticeship level across Wales. Learning through apprenticeships can help staff develop practical skills that are essential to create a successful career in the industry.
Our hospitality learning programmes will give you all the skills you need to succeed in the industry.
Opportunities for apprentices are limited due to the impact of COVID-19, but are available to non-furloughed employees.
Apprenticeships and Training
Training in the Hospitality industry is delivered in a wide range of forms. The Qualification Credit Framework provides a simple and rational apprenticeship framework that presents learner achievement and qualifications in a way that is easy to understand, measure and compare.
It aims to give individuals the opportunity to learn in a more flexible way and enables a wider range of organisations, including employers, to have their training recognised.
