As part of their continual investment into skills training for pubs across the North West, Stockport brewer Robinsons are launching a series of free training courses to local publicans, existing hospitality staff or anyone looking to enter the hospitality industry. The only expense is an examination fee of £25 saving over £115 per person, per course (ex. Vat).*
“It is now about 18 months since we first launched our Apprenticeship Plus Programme in conjunction with other North West pub operators such as Living Ventures and we now have over 120 on programme,” explained Director of Retail Operations David Harrison. "That was about raising the bar for service and standards in our area and these training courses is a continuation of that. There aren’t any catches and we’ll even throw in a brewery tour and buy lunch! We have a £3m training facility which opened 2 years ago and this gives us a great chance to make the most of it.”
“We’re going to run 13 free courses to start,” David continued, “and of course they are available to our licensees too, but we hope to see lots of new faces and should they prove popular then we will continue to run them. We’ve been investing in pubs in the North West for over 175 years - this is about opening the doors to the wider pub community. We don’t mind if you have a pub already that is managed, leased or free of tie – or are simply interested in building your skills with the prospect of perhaps one day running your own pub business…. if you are interested in training and want to make the most of this opportunity then you are the sort of people we’d like to invite to the brewery.”
The Cellar Training (ABCQ) and Personal License Holder (APLH) start on March 3rd and are run in conjunction with CPL Training. Places are available on a first come, first served basis.
