At HIT Training we have a positive vision of what apprenticeships can do: improve individual’s skills and therefore their life chances; make businesses more efficient; and boost the economy. People are at the centre of everything we do; that goes for our own staff as well as those we serve. We take pride in helping people become the best they can be.
Founded by a small group of directors who had successfully established and developed the major training provider ‘Hospitality Plus’, HIT offers hotel and catering apprenticeships across all sectors – not just chefs, bar staff and waiters, but in sales and marketing roles, banqueting and conferencing, events, functions and outside catering.
Our unparalleled industry experience means that we understand the needs of both the employer and the learner. Each of our trainer-assessors has worked in the industry so has valuable practical experience, local knowledge and an understanding of what learners and employers need to forge a life-enhancing, or business-boosting, relationship.
With a strong local focus, HIT offers hotel and catering apprenticeships at all levels and in all sectors. Since 2006 we have supported 100,000 learners at over 22,000 employer sites across the country. We hold two Grade 2 ‘Good’ OFSTED inspections.
More than 70% of HIT apprentices complete their apprenticeships and obtain either a BTEC or City & Guilds diploma.
Our aims are simple:
◗ to help employers increase the effectiveness and profitability of their staff
◗ to develop learners’ personal, economic and social status
◗ to enhance the level of service given to customers and clients.
This is reflected in the success of our learners and the quantifiable improvements and benefits for their employers. Well trained, competent staff are a valuable asset and can help a business perform well by delivering improved efficiency, better customer service and reduced staff turnover.
We always remember that the hospitality industry is a team environment, and the team is only as good as its weakest member. With that in mind, the benefits of training are clear – no one role is more important than another.
