Hospitality and Tourism Pre Employment Academy

Monday 11th September 2017 ends Friday 22nd September

The first week focuses on applicants developing essential customer services skills as well as providing an introduction to the hospitality industry. Participants also gain certificates in Food Safety Level 1 and Health and Safety in the Workplace Level 1.

The second week will give the opportunity for the individuals to develop practical experience in a kitchen.

Skills will be put to the test on the final day when individuals demonstrate the skills they have learned by working in small teams and cooking for their friends and family.

A number of partners are supporting the project including Job Centre Plus Minehead, Butlin’s, The Beach Hotel, West Somerset Council, Acacia Training, Minehead Information Centre, West Somerset College, Rosanda House B&B, Somerset Larder, Tesco and HPC Jobs Service Team. Many local employers and food producers offered donated food and drink to support the event, including Arthur David and Co, Lidl, Morrison’s and Tesco.
