The Apprenticeship in Hospitality, Scotland (AHS) is open to 17-24 year olds and is underpinned by the Modern Apprenticeship Hospitality framework.
Over the two years of the apprenticeship, participants are recruited by a partner host venue, where they learn about and gain experience across a range of hotel operational areas. Master classes and Learning Journeys are delivered throughout the programme to support the curriculum. Successful applicants will gain valuable experience in the following areas, spending 6 months in each, whilst working towards their SVQ Level 5 in Hospitality Services:
* Food & Beverage
Apprentices have a network of support through the AHS programme, including ‘department buddies’, assessors, mentors and hotel sponsors.
Following the completion of the 2 year programme, apprentices are able to undertake an optional 3rd Year, specialising in a specific department and working towards an SVQ Level 3.
The programme begins with a two day induction that brings apprentices together for the first time with key personnel from hotel partners. The induction is delivered by HR representatives from each hotel property and training provider partners.
Master classes & Learning Journeys
A series of master classes throughout years 1 and 2 provide the apprentices with focussed sessions led by experts across a number of topics, and give the apprentices the opportunity to get together as a group. Apprentices are involved in planning the master classes, allowing them to gain hands-on event planning experience and an opportunity to grow their professional networks.
Successful applicants must be available to start in (or before) August 2019 with the two day induction being held at the beginning of October.
* Ability to work as part of a team and as an individual.
* Strong communication skills.
