Kingsmills Hotel Modern Apprenticeship
Kickstart your Hospitality Career
Working in the hospitality industry is like no other. A hotel is a living, breathing place that pulses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! And make no mistake, ours is a service industry. We serve passionately and proudly, and we delight in welcoming guests from all over the world to sample our beautiful Highlands of Scotland and the warm hospitality for which we are known.
Within hospitality, we are kitchen-brigade, waiting teams, bar crew, concierge, housekeeping, receptionists, maintenance squad, reservations team, finance specialists and so much more. The one common thread that runs through us all, is we love “people”. We love to be around the constant thrum and buzz of a busy day and happy customers.
What’s involved in our Modern Apprenticeship?
The Kingsmills Hotel Modern Apprenticeship qualification will take place over a period of 2 years and will offer a hotel-based learning environment where you will train in a practical setting. This development will be supplemented by online training where you will be assessed on 11 modules and earn an SCQF5 Qualification in Hospitality Services – more information on these modules can be found in our prospectus.
Your working week will be 39 hrs per week and will involve shift patterns. During these rotations you will be supported with a “buddy” in each department, and you will also have a personal mentor for the 2 year programme. We want to ensure you feel supported throughout your development.
Over 2 years , you will gain practical training and experience in 4 hotel areas, each for a period of 6 months. These are Food & Beverage Service, Reception/Front Desk, Housekeeping and the Kitchen.
After completion, you will have a solid understanding of our industry and your passions. You will be able to specialize and continue to develop in the area that holds the most interest for you. This is about a career beyond the 2 year programme.
