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 for your child in the hospitality industry
Did you know? 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 1/2 years after beginning their apprenticeship!
The benefits of a hospitality apprenticeship for your child
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!
What happens when your child finishes their apprenticeship?
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.
Is your child eligible to apply for an apprenticeship with us?
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.
Every moment is a chance to prove what you can do, and in a business as big as ours, there is always room to move around when you fancy.
