CH&CO is working closely with its apprenticeship delivery partners to design and deliver apprenticeship programme models that match the business’ objectives and uphold its vision and values.

A new online CH&CO Grow With Us Apprenticeship Academy prospectus has been launched across the business, which operates in more than 1,000 sites and employs more than 10,000 people, to inspire team members to join the academy or offer an apprenticeship in their part of the business.

Apprenticeships offer all our people the opportunity to develop personally and professionally and realise their career ambitions. We want to inspire the next generation of chefs, hospitality professionals and industry leaders and the Grow With Us Apprenticeship Academy supports this. Through our inclusive approach and by partnering with some of the industry’s best apprenticeship providers we’re taking our training and development programmes to the next level and giving our teams clear guidance and tools to help them innovate and grow, which is absolutely the right thing to do.”
