Deltic Group, leading late-night operator has introduced a new apprenticeship programme for aspiring chefs.
The company, which currently employs over 1,800 people between the age of 16-25, first launched its apprenticeship programme in 2017, in partnership with HIT Training. This programme was aimed at front of house roles, namely managers and supervisors.
This year, Deltic has expanded their apprenticeship scheme to provide training for chefs following its successful launch of new Eden brand, which combines all-day dining, drinking and entertainment in botanical-inspired interiors, in summer 2019.
The programme will offer a series of workshops focused on different practical and theoretical skills as well as food groups and types. Candidates on the scheme will undertake the ‘production chef’ qualification and will benefit from a combination of workshops as well as on the job training, providing exposure to a mix of environments.
Zoe Pacyna-Wood, HR Director of The Deltic Group, said: “We are delighted to have extended our apprenticeship scheme through our partnership with HIT Training. Our existing apprenticeship scheme continues to grow and offer opportunities for success – this year, 17 apprentices have graduated through our programme, and many more have received internal promotions following their training.
“The UK late-night leisure sector employs a huge number of young people, and here at The Deltic Group we feel it is more important than ever that we continue to bring young people into the leisure industry and show that it can provide a stable, exciting and rewarding career.”
