Barnsley College is working alongside a host of employers to promote the recruitment of apprentices into roles in hospitality, catering and hairdressing across South Yorkshire.

Working closely with employers such as Wortley Hall, Bells Steak House, The Travellers Inn, Belleair and Grille, the college aims to provide their apprentices a head start in the industries they want a career in and support that can benefit their futures.

The college offers a range of catering and hospitality roles from chef and food and beverage to front of house, hospitality, and cleaning and support apprenticeships, perfect for those wanting to pursue a career in restaurant or hotel management. 

Hair and Beauty apprenticeships are also available from the college. Hairdressing and Beauty apprentices benefit from working in salons and building customer relationships which are essential in the competitive market.

Karen Carr, Head of the Hair and Beauty, and Catering and Hospitality Departments at Barnsley College, said: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to gain experience in the catering, hospitality, hair and beauty industries, and we’re proud to have such an extensive range of courses available.

“Working closely and building trusting relationships with employers is essential to the provision of our apprenticeship programmes. They offer our apprentices unique opportunities and ensure our students get the most out of their learning.”

Barnsley College is the number one Further Education College for apprenticeship success in South Yorkshire with over 87.5% of apprentices achieving their qualifications, which is 18% above the national average. 

The college’s apprenticeship vacancy bulletin is updated every Thursday on the Barnsley College website. Those wishing to enrol on an apprenticeship can apply online.
