Apprentices at Solihull College have completed their hospitality apprenticeships and have been taken on by leading event, contract and retail caterer Amadeus as chefs. The successful apprentices are now working at the ICC in Birmingham, the Genting Arena and the Barclaycard Area. Solihull College has worked with Amadeus providing them with apprentices for Hospitality for over a year.
With this success in mind Solihull College has now launched a new chef apprenticeship programme in the hope to have the same successes as the hospitality programmes.
The apprenticeship programmes are a great opportunity for those wishing to become qualified in the hospitality and catering industry whilst gaining industry experience and earning an income. The programmes at Solihull College give people the opportunity to experience working in the events environment with opportunities to work at arenas such as the ICC and NEC.
Many other hospitality apprentices at Solihull College are also nearing the end of their programmes with many continuing on to the level 3 advanced apprenticeship programmes which will give them a great chance of moving directly into employment in their chosen field. Apprentices can also choose, post level 3, to continue their studies and gain a higher level managerial qualification at Solihull College to further enhance their career prospects. Many apprentices on the programme have been successful in job opportunities following on from completion of their programme.
The apprenticeship programmes at Solihull College offer many opportunities covering different industries. The programmes have shown much success previously, including apprentice Hanna Khan being named as Amadeus Apprentice of the year for 2014.
