It has introduced the Hospitality Supervisor, Team Leader, Chef de Partie and Customer Service Practitioner standards. These are in addition to its Commis Chef and Hospitality Team Member standards which were launched last year.
The apprenticeship will be part of a government-led overhaul to the system, designed to raise the bar in industry training.
Jill Whittaker, managing director of HIT Training, said: “Apprenticeships are the future of the hospitality sector and we’re proud to be among the first to deliver the new standards, helping to reduce the skills gap and broaden opportunities for apprentices within the sector by raising the quality and relevance of training.
“The standards have been created by a group of employers – known as ‘Trailblazers’ – meaning they’re very much based on tangible business needs and have been tailored to specific job roles. Their introduction will ensure that all apprenticeship training is high quality, rigorous and specifically crafted to develop the knowledge and skills required to work in the hospitality industry.”
