“Investing in our people is a key part of retaining our staff and building a pipeline of future stars.” – Amanda Nicholson-Hirst, Lifetime Training

Lifetime Training designs award-winning programmes that are role relevant and industry endorsed across not only the Hospitality Industry, but within Health & Social Care, Childcare & Teaching, Retail, Fitness & Active Leisure, Business & Management and Clinical Health.
“Lifetime Training’s Hospitality training is award winning and through the apprenticeship programmes we improve service quality, staff efficiency and retention which has a positive impact on the individual partners we work with but also the wider hospitality industry,” Amanda said.
Lifetime Training not only provide Front and Back of House training but also management apprenticeships. Lifetime Training believes that a successful hospitality business depends upon the quality of its management. Managers are responsible for managing and training their team to consistently deliver attentive customer service, whilst meeting businesses targets. Their attention to detail means that they are on top of every element of running the business from front of house and kitchen, through to staffing, inventory, entertainment, local marketing and finance.
The Learning & Development category is an exciting one, boasting a powerhouse shortlist; Dishoom, Dorchester Collection, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, Pizza Express, Soho House & Co. and The Grand Brighton.
Amanda explained, “We need to create a shift in how young people are educated about Hospitality and how apprenticeships are perceived, to be able to showcase the exciting careers within the Hospitality industry.”
