  • Excursions to hospitality & catering events to broaden your knowledge
  • Entry to both Hilton Worldwide and nationwide competitions
  • Apprentice of the Year Award

Just desserts.....

It's going to be a challenge that will take all your commitment, working unusual hours and various shifts, including weekends and bank holidays, but the rewards will be very sweet as you fast-track your career with a leading international brand.

Our training approach is practical and hands on based on industry and professional standards. Each apprentice is assigned a personal mentor within their hotel team.

Personal mentors will bring out your talents and build your confidence as a chef, with regular reviews & practical assessments. We will train you a prestigious, busy Hilton Worldwide hotel in London - you will be learning on the job with both day release at Westminster Kingsway College and on-site professional assessments.

No previous experience is required, but we would expect you to have demonstrated your passion for a career in the kitchen - this could be from school or local competitions, or even from being the Head Chef at home!
