Hospitality apprenticeship and training specialist HIT Training has been awarded a ‘Silver’ level accreditation by People 1st, making it the industry’s first national private training provider to be recognised in this way.
“To know that the quality of our training provision and skills development has been recognised by our own industry underlines our passion for, and belief in, the importance of high-quality training for the hospitality sector,” said HIT’s managing director Jill Whittaker.
Previously only awarded to colleges of further education, the Silver accreditation was conferred on HIT in recognition of training excellence and qualification delivery.
People 1st, the skills and workforce development charity which works in association with the Hospitality Guild, examined a range of disciplines within HIT including good practice, and staff and employer feedback.
People 1st director of operations Martine Pullen said: “We visited HIT and spoke with a range of people including trainers, management and the employers that they work with.
"Everything that HIT does is designed to meet the needs of those working within the hospitality industry ensuring that their delivery models meet the business needs of their employers and that students are equipped with the skills to thrive in the workplace.”
