UKH launches education guide for hospitality employers

UKHospitality has launched the Education Landscape: A Guide for Employers.

Trade body UKHospitality has launched the Education Landscape: A Guide for Employers, showcasing pubs and bars the options for working with schools, colleges and universities, young people and older learners, and the benefits of doing so for their business.

As the education system continues to evolve, the new Education Landscape Guide will help businesses understand what path they can take to further improve their recruitment, training and skills development.

The guide, created in partnership with the Strategic Development Network, showcases how investing in skills and talent at an education level can help businesses discover new people, develop their existing team, create new partnerships and increase their work within the community.

It goes step-by-step through the different ways to get involved, outlining the level of commitment required and the benefits from participating.

"Investing in developing our own pipeline of talent has never been more important and this guide offers a wealth of information on how to do just that, in a way that works for your business," says UKHospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls.

"Whether it’s taking on an apprentice, offering workplace experiences through a local school or providing expert guidance to teachers, there are now so many ways to engage that benefit recruitment and staffing in the long-term. UKHospitality set out in its Workforce Strategy the need to make these sorts of initiatives and qualifications more widespread and it’s really encouraging that we now see so many businesses heavily engaged in skills and training.

"There aren’t many sectors that can rival hospitality’s career offering with the variety of roles available and the buzz it offers, along with the prospect of going from bar to board in a matter of years."
