Develop a career and complete an apprenticeship

We know the importance of training and development, and we actively support our teams in their goals, so are pleased to offer level 2 apprenticeship schemes through Farnborough College, Basingstoke College of Technology, and Havant & South Downs College, with 1 day a week of college and 4 days practical work in the kitchen.

For those looking to continue working full time alongside further training, level 2 to management level apprenticeships through HIT Training are also an option, with periodic skill workshops.

An Apprenticeship scheme allows individuals to gain key skills and experience in the industry they have an interest in, through hands-on training and mentoring at their place of work.


Benefits of Apprenticeships:

  • Earn while you learn
  • A recognised qualification
  • Real work experience
  • Develop skills
  • Ongoing, personalised support

Our Apprenticeship opportunities are available for individuals who are over 16 years old and have finished full-time education. They are offered in two different ways, giving flexibility and a preference in learning.

Level 2 and Level 3 Apprenticeships can be completed through one of our supported local colleges. By completing your learning this way you will work 4 days a week in one of our pubs, combined with 1 full day a week attending college. Your time at college will be a mixture of theory and practical assessments and you will also be assigned a tutor who will visit you at work, to check on your progress and assist in any areas where you need further guidance.

Alternatively, we work with HIT Training providing all levels of Apprenticeships which are completed by a mix of online workshops and workplace visits and assessments. Again, you would have a designated tutor that would support you through regular online and one-to-one catch-ups in your workplace.

For both options, the courses take one year to 18 months to complete, depending on the level you are working towards. Following this, you would then take your end-point assessment which is made up of a mixture of practical assessments and exams. Courses can either be started at the beginning of the academic year or at any point throughout the year offering complete flexibility.


We also offer our Apprentices the following to support them during their learning:

  • Competitive wage
  • Bonus on completion of the apprenticeship
  • A Young Person’s Rail Card for the year (age applicable)
