UKHospitality has greeted today’s announcement of a cash boost for colleges and school providing training in key areas including hospitality and catering.

Commenting on the announcement, UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “It is great to see the Government recognising hospitality and catering as key sectors for skills development. We provide young people with exciting, challenging and rewarding careers and we should be able to deliver even more if we have the right kind of support.

“UKHospitality has been calling on the Government to provide support and funding to develop vocational training in hospitality. It was one of the asks following our extensive Hospitality Workforce Commission 2030 which examined the challenges employers in our sector face.

“Hospitality careers are too often overlooked or under-valued, so it is great that the Government have acknowledge that we need additional support to make sure that colleges and schools are properly equipped to help students begin their careers in our great sector.”
