Matt Buxton, Hospitality, Food and Beverage Apprenticeship

"Hospitality is a good industry to go into as your skills can take you anywhere in the country, or even across the world! I have enjoyed my Apprenticeship at the Hilton at St. George’s Park - you learn while you’re working; it broadens your knowledge and gives you practical skills."

Rini Harron , Adult Apprenticeship in Professional Cookery

“At first, I wondered if I could do it, but the support I have been given from The Winery and Burton and South Derbyshire College has pushed me to do well. I think if you want to do something, it shouldn’t matter how old you are; everyone should follow their passion!”

Emily Bramley, Level 3 Business Administration Apprentice

I have really enjoyed my Apprenticeship at St George's Park and I have been successful in getting a permanent position as FA Learning Co-ordinator. I will continue gaining more qualifications in the future and may go on to study a Foundation Degree at College alongside work.
