With hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism being one of the few industries in the UK set to grow in the next few years, research estimates that an average of 106,300 additional people will be required annually to meet ongoing growth in the sector.
Key to achieving this aim is our Employment 1st programme, a 60 hour level 1 introduction to the hospitality, travel and tourism industries. This programme has been designed specifically for these industries and includes areas such as level 2 food safety for hospitality, level 2 health and safety, and a level 2 customer service qualification. The programme also includes training on working as part of a team and time management.
Employment 1st is a dynamic training programme that prepares people looking for their first job in hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism industry. It has been developed with input from employers, who have requested a consistent industry standard for pre-employment training.
The programme covers 13 job roles:
Customer service staff – reception
Leisure and theme park attendant
Employers can save time and money by working with their local college to identify suitable candidates that have been through the Employment 1st programme, while helping to reduce unemployment at the same time.
Employment 1st can also lead to a nationally-recognised qualification – Level 1 Award in Introduction to Employment in the Hospitality Sector, LARA ref:
- Qual Aim: 60004484 – City & Guilds
- Qual Aim: 50118067 – BIIAB
