Mitchells & Butlers has signed up its first apprentice onto the new hospitality team member apprenticeship standard, as part of a three-year plan.

The pub, bar and restaurant operator plans to create 5,000 apprenticeships over the next three years.

Paul Capper, Mitchells & Butlers vocational learning manager, said: “It's essential we can see the value we are driving through our apprentice scheme and the new apprenticeship standards give us an opportunity to have more transparency about the true return on investment it creates.

“The standards focus on developing knowledge, skills and behaviour and therefore this will only drive greater quality standards within the team and across the wider apprentice network."

Mitchells & Butlers currently has more than 1594 apprentices on programme and 402 achievers to date.

Julie Proctor, account director at Lifetime Training, which partners Mitchells & Butlers in its apprentice scheme, said: “This was our first hospitality sector apprenticeship standard sign up also.

“I applaud Mitchells & Butlers for embracing change and embarking on a journey that I am sure will pay them back in dividends.”
