Information for Parents

An apprenticeship with Mitchells & Butlers is a chance for your child to earn while they learn, and gain a nationally recognised qualification. In hospitality, the best way to learn new skills is through practical experience. And with an apprenticeship, each new skill they learn at work counts towards a hospitality qualification!


Opportunities in the hospitality industry

The hospitality industry employs 2.9m people - 9% of the UK workforce – and is the UK's fourth-largest industry. It is also one of few industries where you can develop your career and step into management fast. Apprentices with Mitchells & Butlers have already moved into Assistant Manager roles just 2.5 years after beginning their apprenticeship!

What it’s really like!

A hospitality apprenticeship allows your child to grow in confidence whilst gaining valuable life skills. Not only that, our apprentices tell us that one of the best things about their job is the fun atmosphere and buzz of working in a fast-paced team. There’s always the opportunity to make someone’s day – but no two days or customers will ever be the same!

Create your own future

All our apprentices that have completed their apprenticeship have been offered a full-time role within our business. They can also continue onto further apprenticeships. We offer Level 2 apprenticeships right the way up to Level 5, so once you start your journey with us, you can continue right the way to a higher apprenticeship, equivalent to a foundation degree.

Who can apply?

Our apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16 and of school leaving age. That means your child cannot begin an apprenticeship with us until after the final Friday in June when they have completed year 11.

Once you click apply now, you will be redirected to a third party company, Lifetime Training, who hosts details of, and provides services in relation to, our apprenticeship scheme. Lifetime Training's terms and conditions
