The Scottish Apprenticeship in Hospitality (SAH) is open to 17-24 year olds and is underpinned by the Modern Apprenticeship Hospitality framework.

Over the three years of the apprenticeship, learn about and gain experience across a range of hotel operational areas unlike current apprenticeships which are generally restricted to one department. Master classes and Learning Journeys are delivered throughout the programme to support the curriculum.

Years 1 & 2: Apprentices spend time working in key operating departments Housekeeping, Kitchen, Food & Beverage and Front of House leading to a SVQ Level 2 in Hospitality Services

Year 3: Apprentices work in their chosen area of specialism, leading to a SVQ Level 3 in Hospitality Services

Apprentices have a network of support through the SAH programme, including department buddies, assessors, mentors and hotel sponsors.

Residential Induction

The programme begins with a two day induction that brings apprentices together for the first time with key personnel from hotel partners. The induction is delivered by HR representatives from each hotel property and training provider partners.

Master classes & Learning Journeys

A series of master classes throughout years 1 and 2 provide the apprentices with focussed sessions led by experts across a number of topics, and give the apprentices the opportunity to get together as a group. Apprentices are involved in planning the master classes, allowing them to gain hands-on event planning experience and an opportunity to grow their professional networks.

Master classes:

Green Tourism at the Gleneagles Hotel

Day visit to Apex Hotels Laundry in Livingston
