13.jpgCIEH to talk ‘Partners in Professionalism’

With Anne Godfrey, Chief Executive of CIEH and Andrew Walker, Managing Director of TQUK already on board, we’re delighted to announce that Jill Whittaker, Managing Director of HIT Training Ltd and Annette Allmark of People1st will be joining us at the Kingsway Hall Hotel, London on March 22nd.

The event, which is designed to provide an overarching view of the Hospitality and Catering sector and the Environmental Health sector, will provide training centres with a wealth of knowledge and information about every aspect of these sectors from 2017. Including the new hospitality apprenticeship standards and what they mean for employers and providers alike.

Annette Allmark, Director of Strategic Policy at People1st said:

“The apprenticeship system is undergoing its most radical change in decades and, for some employers, it can seem overwhelming. People 1st has worked with employers in the hospitality industry to design and develop seven new apprenticeship standards, and is working with a wide range of businesses to prepare and embrace the new system and maximise on their levy investment.’ 

‘We provide expert advice to a number of leading employers to help shape their apprenticeship strategies – the TQUK and CIEH event is a great opportunity to share some of our insight and explain how they can benefit from the new apprenticeships.”

CIEH have also confirmed they intend to discuss further their recently announced ‘Partners in Professionalism’ programme.

Anne Godfrey, Chief Executive of CIEH said: “On launch, our new qualification portfolio will focus on Food Safety, and Occupational Health and Safety, spanning Introductory, Foundation and Intermediate levels. And we’re just getting started.’

‘It is a dynamic, 21st century learning programme for a dynamic, 21st century sector – underpinned by more than 130 years of CIEH heritage. I look forward to discussing this further at the TQUK event.”

We’ll be discussing a range topics including:

  • The results of a CIEH commissioned YouGov independent survey of the Environmental Health sector
  • The need for CIEH to diversify and broaden its market
  • CIEH’s decision to voluntarily surrender recognition as a regulated awarding organisation
  • The progression of TQUK and the qualification development options available to centres
  • Hospitality and Catering qualifications with TQUK, paying particular focus to Food Safety
  • What the new hospitality apprenticeship standards mean for employers and providers
  • The process of making the switch to the new standards and maximising the benefits for learners and employers
  • How the Apprenticeship Levy funding can be used to reassess apprenticeship programmes and implement new hospitality standards
  • Gold standard apprenticeship providers

Jill Whittaker, Managing Director of HIT Training Ltd said:

“2017 is set to be a big year for apprenticeships with the Apprenticeship Levy coming into force in April and the introduction of new training standards to compliment those launched last year.

TQUK provides us with the perfect forum to discuss what these developments mean for employers and how they can make the most of the new training opportunities.”

The event also provides the perfect platform for CIEH to discuss the voluntary surrender of their recognition as a regulated awarding organisation and the opportunities this will present to training centres in the coming months and years.

Tickets for the event are still available via Eventbrite or the TQUK office on 03333 583 344.
