UK: PPHE Hotel Group is looking for apprentices to join the hospitality group in 2018

PPHE Hotel Group has announced the launch of its Apprenticeship Academy programme.

The programme aims to train specialised workers across the industry. PPHE owns, leases, develops, operates and franchises contemporary and lifestyle hotels in major gateway cities and resort destinations through the Park Plaza Hotels® & Resorts and art'otel brands.

The Apprenticeship Academy was designed in partnership with elite hospitality apprenticeship provider Umbrella Training. The scheme will focus on four key areas: Security, Chefs, Maintenance and Finance.

Jaklien Van Sterkenburg, head of HR at PPHE Hotel Group said: "Our upcoming development pipeline includes two new art'otels in London meaning that we will have a strong focus on attracting new, and identify existing talent within the business. The Apprenticeship Academy further enhances PPHE Hotel Group's existing range of development programmes that proactively encourage team members from all levels of the business to gain the required skills, knowledge and behaviours to succeed within the hospitality sector. With this new Apprenticeship Academy, the Group's aim is to address the skills shortage within the industry, proactively engage team members and help them achieve their growth potential, supporting career progression."
Adele Oxberry, managing director at Umbrella Training said: "Working with PPHE Hotel Group on the launch of this new academy has been a real pleasure. As a business, they are wholeheartedly committed to apprenticeships across their hotels and have a strong desire to offer something a little different. With our industry requiring 993,000 people by 2022, apprenticeships provide a very real opportunity to close the skills gaps our sector faces, while giving apprentices a career for life. We look forward to expanding our partnership over the coming months."
