The objective of the project is to sustain employment by engaging with a variety of employers utilising skills, experience and sharing good practice facilitated through a point of contact, who will provide a support network for an apprentice chef. The programme will complement existing provision and not displace directly employed apprenticeships.
Apprentices will follow a structured program, spending placements in participating companies that are suitably matched to the apprentice’s strengths, the employer’s needs and meet the requirements of an appropriate framework. The apprentices will gain valuable experience and
skills through working with the host company, and apprentices will also spend time with two or more companies in order to gain the relevant experience and skills. The College’s commercial restaurants will function as the workplace in instances when employers are unable to retain
apprentices in off-peak season until a new employer is secured.
The model seeks to mirror the fluctuating demand of the hospitality sector by placing apprentice chefs with employers during their busiest times and then bringing them back to the provider restaurants and kitchens during slack periods.
Employers will identify vacancies and we will work with them on recruitment and employment of individuals. This process will be managed by the project co-ordinator at Pembrokeshire College. Aptitude and motivation will be key drivers but there are no formal entry requirements other than the enthusiasm and willingness to work in the sector. This scheme will complement the existing provision by offering an alternative that aims to increase the number of learners choosing to follow routes within the hospitality sector. Some parts of the delivery may be delivered alongside both FE and other apprentices in the kitchen, classroom or restaurant setting.
