We want more talented young people to share our passion. We want to encourage them to join this wonderful industry, teach them important new skills, and help to create some of the leaders for tomorrow. That is why, in January 2015, we launched our very own Brend Training Academy, which was the first of its kind in the South West.
Our training academy provides paid training placements for young people from our local area who are keen to pursue a career in the hospitality industry, so that they can earn an income while also acquiring valuable new skills, working within our expert team of 1,300 staff. They have the opportunity to learn their trade and also gain accredited qualifications, all under the close guidance of our managers.
There are now over 50 young people in Devon and Cornwall who are undertaking traineeships, apprenticeships or national vocational courses under the banner of the Brend Training Academy.
