UK pub company Young’s is having a double celebration after it was awarded ‘employer provider status’ and launched two new chef academy programmes.

The status enables allows Young’s, operator of almost 220 pubs across the country, to be an official training provider and to leverage the government’s Apprentice Levy funds for training programmes.

The pubco is set to offer in-house training to 75 new apprentices this year through two new programmes, running for 18 months at its food development and learning centre in Wandsworth, London.

Young’s says that its Level 2 programme has been designed to give apprentices the opportunity to gain practical experience in cookery and business, while the level 3 programme will focus on a wider range of skills, preparing young chefs for future leadership roles.

Joe Mears, Young’s head of apprenticeships, said: “The chef ccademies will harness and develop talent from within and, with the continued support a dedicated team, we know apprentices will flourish and grow their careers with us.

“It is widely acknowledged that there is a shortage of talented chefs in the UK and the Apprenticeship Levy will help us create significant opportunities for individuals hungry to learn and develop.”
