HIT Training offers chartered management degree apprenticeship to drive business improvement

Posted on 11 September, 2018

HIT Training is offering the BA (Hons) Management and Leadership Apprenticeship Degree, enabling hospitality businesses to develop their managers’ skills and expertise to drive significant and sustainable business improvement. 

The programme, open for applications until 1st October 2018, is an advanced, degree-level qualification for employees already working in management and leadership roles, who have not yet benefited from formalised training. 

The apprenticeship will be delivered by HIT Training in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University, and is designed to stretch employees’ skills through complex assignments and projects that will help deliver business impact. 

The four key areas of development are:

  • Developing leadership and management capability 
  • Analysing and determining business improvement
  • Understanding organisational performance
  • Delivering business improvement

Over the three-year programme, apprentices will undertake a structured and rigorous learning process to satisfy the Degree Assessment, Apprenticeship Standard and Chartered Manager Status. The apprenticeship is work based and the projects on this course are designed in the context of the apprentice’s own place of work to deliver real business change.

Jill Whittaker, Managing Director of HIT Training, commented: “We’re very proud to offer a specialised Charted Manager Degree Apprenticeship, which is specifically designed to formalise and refine managers’ skills to a high level, which will ultimately benefit businesses within the hospitality industry. The fact that apprentices are tasked with identifying and implementing business change in areas that could make a commercial gain in their own place of work provides an exciting opportunity for both managers and employers to make a meaningful difference to the business’ performance.”

The deadline for applications is 1st October 2018.

HIT Training encourages hospitality businesses looking to strengthen their management and leadership capabilities to get in touch now.

McMullen’s chose HIT as its sole external provider for Apprenticeships and vocational qualifications in early 2015 and since then we have found them a pleasure to work with.  Their expertise in this sector is superior and they have proven to be a professional and supportive partner who have a passion for learning and development, which matches our own organisation.

Amanda Walden – Training & Recruitment Manager, McMullen's

Encouraging our staff to improve their skills set and supporting them through apprenticeships and training programmes underlines our commitment to help them further develop their own careers. Offering the Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship also gives the Brend Group a point of difference which I’m convinced will help attract new members of staff in the future.

Andrew Mosedale - Group HR Manager, Brend Hotels

Our partnership with HIT has certainly made recruitment much easier in a very difficult labour market and gives us a point of difference in an increasingly competitive environment.  Kew Green has also benefited enormously from well trained, skilled and competent staff who contribute significantly to the ever improving and high levels of customer experience that our guests expect and deserve.

Andrew Tregenza - HR Business Partner, Kew Green Hotels

Apprenticeships allow us to give people a great opportunity to develop a career with us and learn a skill or trade that will accompany them throughout their career and life. We see progression to the Level 4 qualification as key to our strategy of providing development at all stages of an employee’s career with Harrison.

Alex Taylor - Training Manager, Harrison Catering Services

We chose HIT as our training provider not only because of their specialist knowledge of the hospitality industry, but also because of their genuine passion for our brand and their understanding of our company culture. We believe that they can deliver our training to a very high standard whilst passing on our company ethos and values. Their attention to detail is second to none.

There is a shortage of skilled chefs within in our industry at present and any organisation that truly believes in the value of training and development of bright future stars will enable themselves to be in a strong position for the years ahead. Investing in smart training and development is at the heart of what we do within WSH, so it has been refreshing to work alongside HIT within our Baxterstorey Chef Academy.
