The Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales has launched a Hotel and Hospitality Apprenticeship Programme as the venue seeks to train up the next generation of hospitality professionals.
The programme is built on the resort’s existing trainee management and operational trainee schemes and offers two years of training on all the operational aspects of the hotel and hospitality industry.
Modules will cover food and beverage, conference and banqueting, front of house, housekeeping and kitchens as well as a stint combining all these areas at the resort’s Coldra Court Hotel.
Apprentices will also be given access to a range of development courses with subject matter including personal development, teamwork, guest relations, presentation and interview skills.
Operations director Matthew Lewis said: “This apprenticeship programme is an excellent opportunity for young people looking to make a career in hospitality and wishing to learn all aspects of the industry.
“Working with some of the most energetic and motivational managers in the industry, apprentices will have a hands-on insight into the operation of one of the UK’s busiest and most successful hotels and resorts.
“The resort is constantly expanding and we have a ‘grow our own’ strategy focussed on the development of the next generation of hospitality professionals who will become the managers of the future and help shape the future of the resort.”
Host venue for the 2014 NATO Summit, the Celtic Manor Resort was named Large Employer of the Year at this year’s inaugural Cambrian Training Company Apprenticeship, Employment and Skills Awards.
