What you can expect

An Apprenticeship is a valuable doorway of opportunity for learners and employees to progress in their industry.

The Hospitality industry, and in particularly food & beverage, covers hotels, restaurants, pubs, bars and nightclubs, hospitality services, and holiday resorts among others, and is part of the wider leisure, travel and tourism sector which needs to recruit 855,000 staff by the year 2017 to replace those who leave or retire.

A Food & Beverage Intermediate Level Apprenticeship is an investment in the skills you need to succeed in the hospitality industry. These skills include:

  • Good organisational skills
  • Customer service and 'people' skills
  • An understanding and tactful approach
  • Willingness to learn new techniques and methods
  • An awareness of health and safety issues

 

The exact details of your job depends on your specific employer, but typically you can expect to work around 37 hours a week on a shift or rota system, including nights, bank holidays and particularly weekends, a busy time for the hospitality sector. As a waiter or silver service waiter or bar and cellar person, your role could include any of the following:

  • Serving customers
  • Taking food and drink orders
  • Serving drinks
  • Ensure that tables are cleaned quickly and efficiently
  • Preparing and checking bills
  • Receiving payment

 

You’ll also learn:

  • How to set up the bar area
  • Stocking shelves and refrigerators
  • Learning clear up service

I've completed my NVQ in Hospitality and Housekeeping and am going on to do my Level 3 Team Leading. My assessor was great. Whenever I needed anything she was always there to help. 5 star!
