Know Hospitality Academy, Liverpool, have had their first set of interns graduate. The five graduates were congratulated at a presentation evening at city’s Richmond Hotel.
The students, Emilia Carden, Asa Jones, Warren Kilcourse, Ben Lavelle, and Sophay Ledwich studied all aspects of hospitality from within a working environment.
The aim of the academy is to develop skills and give young adults the opportunities to begin a career in the hospitality sector.
The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Tony Concepcion, presented each student with a graduation certificate and a £100 voucher for work-wear.
Three graduates, Emilia, Ben and Asa, have accepted full-time apprenticeships at The Richmond Hotel, while the other graduates are meeting with other hotels to discuss opportunities.
Steven Hesketh, managing director of The Richmond Hotel, and treasurer of Liverpool Hoteliers Association, said: “We are thrilled that out first five Know Hospitality Academy students have embarked on what can become a tremendous journey for them.”
“The Richmond team have fully embraced the academy programme by becoming mentors, sharing the wealth of their expertise and knowledge with the hospitality talent of tomorrow.”
