Skills Minister Nick Boles was on hand to roll out Pizza Hut’s first ever apprenticeship scheme.
Ranging from level one to degree standard, the programme aims to provide apprentices with a range of skills, from guest service and hospitality leadership, through to more technical requirements focusing on food production and financial analysis.
The apprenticeships will be open to all Pizza Hut employees with each individual supported by a personalised development plan, and will be run with Manchester Metropolitan University.
Mr Boles said: “These apprenticeships at Pizza Hut Restaurants will offer even more people the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge while working.”
Pizza Hut plans to take on 1,500 apprentices over the next five years.
