The Hospitality Apprenticeship Showcase: Outstanding Apprentices of 2023!

Following the success of the Hospitality Apprenticeship Showcase in February, we wanted to put the spotlight back on the amazing apprentices who attended and those who received the Outstanding Apprentice Award. Keep reading to find out more about them, and their apprenticeships within the hospitality industry. 

The seventh Hospitality Apprenticeship Showcase, held at a prestigious venue, the House of Commons, celebrated apprentices within the hospitality industry alongside their employing companies, CEOs, Managing Directors, MPs and Lords and Ladies. 

Companies which attended the event applauded their outstanding apprentices for excelling within their apprenticeship programmes. The following were all named outstanding apprentices (which is quite an achievement!) and were presented with a certificate by Alun Cairns MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group: 

  • Emma Duke from CH &Co, undertaking her apprenticeship with Umbrella Training
  • Fiat Worthington from Miller & Carter, undertaking his apprenticeship with Mitchells & Butlers
  • Anthony David from the Lost & Found, undertaking his apprenticeship with Marston’s
  • Kerry Rafferty from the Needle & Awl undertaking her apprenticeship with Greene King
  • Tom Foster from Stonegate Group, undertaking his apprenticeship with the Pub Co

To achieve recognition like this, it takes determination and passion – something these apprentices have mastered! Their hard work has been a catalyst to their progress, helping their whole teams reach new successes through the course of their programmes. 

All of these apprentices are a testament to the value of apprenticeships in the hospitality industry, proving once again, there is no one correct way to reach your dream career, and we are thrilled to be able to share their achievements with you. 

So, in saying this, let’s raise a glass to Emma, Fiat, Anthony, Tom and Kerry for their incredible achievements and continued commitment to this thriving industry.
