The Hub at 16 Hospitality- From Field to Fork

We invited our Rookies to experience and understand the journey of freshly grown produce from field to fork.

16 learners from across our sites had the opportunity to follow a crop of lettuce from the moment it is picked from the field to its distribution across the UK.

After a tour of the facility, teams from each site got creative and were challenged to design, source and cook a new vegetarian dish for the pubs’ menu. The winner was The White Eagle’s poached peach & strawberry sable with goats curd & palm sugar.

As part of our dedication to providing some of the most varied and ‘hands-on’ hospitality training in the UK, our Rookies are given the opportunity to experience several exciting external trips throughout their training.

A huge thank you to Oliver Kay and Woodlands Green Farm for an educational and memorable day.

The Hub

Our hospitality training programme is open to all ages, whether 18 or 65, all year round. The only requirements are that applicants hold no previous experience and have a strong work ethic.

As well as gaining formal qualifications accredited by City & Guilds, ‘rookies’ will experience what it means to work in the day-to-day operation of hospitality venues, as well as have the unique opportunity to experience exciting and informative external trips with a range of established hospitality partners.

“What we want to offer at The Hub is not only a practical training programme but life-changing experiences, beginning with being handed an alarm clock to help with those early mornings and a ‘rookie’ badge. Those who succeed will not only receive graduation honours, they will receive a job guarantee at either one of our venues or one of our carefully selected partners.”
