UK: The Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers has announced the launch of a diploma for the hospitality sector

The Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers (ALMR) has announced that it will launch a diploma for the hospitality sector.

Employees will undergo a course delivered by HIT Training and tested by practical learning organisation BIIAB, which is owned by the British Institute of Innkeeping.

Apprentices will have the opportunity to sit six modules: customer service, underage sales prevention, drugs awareness, conflict management, food safety in catering, and an award for personal licence holders.

The modules will be taught by CPL Training and delivered via online classes, apart from the award for personal licence holders, which will be provided on a personal basis.

ALMR chief executive Kate Nicholls said: "The ALMR hospitality diploma will provide the UK's hospitality businesses with an all-inclusive, exhaustive training and assessment scheme designed to meet the myriad demands of this innovative and varied sector. The diploma will also provide employees with the support and education they need to progress within the sector, and will deliver a solid foundation for a potentially long and rewarding career, and a senior role within our dynamic industry."

Jill Whittaker, managing director of HIT Training, added: "We are delighted to be partnering with the ALMR on this great new initiative, which will not only provide both young employees and those new to the industry with the support and development they need, but also a chance for us to show the great work being done in this fantastic and supportive sector by highlighting the exciting and varied careers that exist."
