Nidd Hall Hotel, part of the Warner Leisure Hotels Group, has joined forces with TBG Learning to offer its team the chance to complete a range of Apprenticeships. Around 23 staff at the four-star hotel have already signed up to complete programmes.
Nidd Hall is the second venue in the Warner Leisure Hotels Group to join forces with TBG Learning following on from success at Thoresby Hall Hotel in Nottinghamshire.
Guest and team welfare manager, Julie Bracken, who has herself enrolled on the level five management programme, said: “We’re delighted to be working with TBG Learning to offer our team the opportunity to enhance their skills and work towards really worthwhile professional qualifications.
“This is a great opportunity for our team to work their way up within the company, and personally I’m really pleased to now be working towards the level five Apprenticeship.”
Teams in the housekeeping, customer service, management, team leading and kitchen services departments are among the first group to enrol.
“We’re really pleased with the first intake and I’m sure as everyone on the programme progresses more of the staff will be keen to get involved too,” added Julie.
“The general manager and all of the support team are passionate about investing in our workforce and opening up opportunities like this, as if our team are happy and engaged this will only enhance the experience our guests have when visiting the hotel.”
Helen Borrington, from TBG Learning, said staff at Nidd Hall will work closely with assessors over the next year.
“We’re really pleased to be working with the team at Nidd Hall Hotel. There’s a great team spirit at the hotel and they have a tremendous appetite to continue to develop their skills.
“The Apprenticeships are carefully tailored to fit in with each of the specific roles and structured for those that have enrolled to progress at their own pace.
“We look forward to supporting the learners in every way we can over the coming months.”
This is a great opportunity for our team to work their way up within the company, and personally I’m really pleased to now be working towards the level five apprenticeship.”
