UK: Red Carnation Hotels has partnered with Umbrella Training to launch an apprenticeship programme across its London hotels.

The initiative has been launched ahead of the new apprenticeship levy and standards being launched on April 6th 2017.

Since launch, a total 17 Red Carnation employees have enrolled onto an apprenticeship through Umbrella, and have begun their training to complete the apprenticeship and gain new qualifications and skills which enhance their career opportunities.

As part of the partnership, Umbrella Training will be carrying out a mapping exercise to transfer all training materials, programmes and standard operating procedures into the new Apprenticeship Standards; enabling Red Carnation Hotels to obtain the best return on investment for the levy payment.

Sam Coulstock, business relations director at Umbrella Training, said: "It's great to work with such a forward-thinking business like Red Carnation Hotels, which has gained a great understanding of the reforms, embraced the changes, upskilling their workforce and are building a talent pipeline for the future."

Claire Golden, HR director at Red Carnation Hotels, said: "It's been great to partner with Umbrella from the beginning. They have really helped us understand the levy and the new standards; particularly with their brilliant mapping exercise which makes sure we are aligned with the new standards. We are delighted that it has been a success and we are looking forward to a continued relationship with them."
