Red Carnation Hotels has launched a new apprenticeship programme across its London hotels, ahead of the new apprenticeship levy standards due to come into force on April 6, 2017.
The hotel group, which comprises 17 five- and four-star properties across UK, Guernsey, Switzerland, Ireland, South Africa and USA, has teamed up with Umbrella Training to create the new scheme, which has seen a total of 17 RCH employees begin new training.
As part of the new partnership, Umbrella Training will be carrying out a mapping exercise to transfer all training materials, programmes and standard operating procedures into the new Apprenticeship Standards in preparation for the new levy changes next year.
Claire Golden, HR director at Red Carnation Hotels said: “It’s been great to partner with Umbrella from the beginning. They have really helped us understand the levy and the new standards; particularly with their brilliant mapping exercise which makes sure we are aligned with the new standards. We are delighted that it has been a success and we are looking forward to a continued relationship with them.”
