The Hub at 16 Hospitality - Seafood Day

We invited our Rookies to understand and experience the journey of fresh fish as it travels from sea to service.

Twelve learners from across our sites spent a day learning about the creatures of the deep, as they visited M & J Seafood, where they were taken on a tour of the site and introduced to over 25 species of fish. They were then given a masterclass in filleting fish, before getting their heads into the books as they were shown important business skills, from company structuring to finance.

The team then headed off to Anglesey for some fresh sea air, as they called into a popular Menai mussel farm for some shucking and sampling of the tasty produce. The ‘hands-on’ hospitality training programme gives Rookies the opportunity to experience several exciting external trips throughout their training.

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.”
