TGI Friday’s is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its apprenticeship programme. The on-going initiative aims to inspire team members by encouraging careers within the hospitality sector.
Since the launch of the programme, 270 apprentices have been enrolled, with new team members signing up every month. Graduates of the apprenticeship are awarded with five Level Two qualifications (equivalent to five GCSEs) and a Level Three Hospitality & Supervision Leadership Principles Course.
“We’re really pleased with how the apprenticeship scheme has attracted a wave of driven and talented young people into the industry. With the extra support from our training academies, the scheme has helped not only to build the confidence of young people but also give them a purpose and a goal to aspire to,” said Jacqui McManus, director of culture and people development at TGI Friday’s.
The programme is available for all 4,000 of TGI Friday’s current team members and newcomers joining with new restaurant openings.
