I was already working at The White Horse in Brancaster when my manager offered me a hospitality apprenticeship.

When I began my apprenticeship, my aspirations were to become a Food and Beverage Manager, eventually study a degree in sales and marketing.

I chose to study my apprenticeship at CWA due to it being local and offering a good mix of face-to-face and online learning. My apprenticeship involves the day-to-day running of the restaurant, ensuring it is clean for customers, serving food and preparing for the day. I also get involved in some of the back-of-house jobs, including cashing-up, stock taking, pricing up and accounting.

The benefit of studying an apprenticeship is that I’m able to gain industry experience whilst gaining a qualification within the industry itself. I also enjoy being able to earn whilst I am learning, enabling me to save money for the future. As I am more of a practical learner, I was able to learn much more than I would’ve done in a classroom. I got to work and meet with amazing people whilst learning about the industry that I want to work in.

If you are thinking of doing an apprenticeship, then I would say 100% do it! You’re able to get so much more out of an apprenticeship, as you’re able to get industry experience which will look good on your CV.

After completing my apprenticeship, I hope to study Hospitality Management Level 4.
