School Based Apprenticeships

The THA is committed to School Based Apprenticeships (SBA) as a great vehicle to move young people into the industry as trained and qualified operators.

There is great value in a SBA for venues:

  • 1 or 2 days a week in school time and full time in holidays – up to venue need to manage
  • SBA has up to 3 years (years 10 – 12) to become used to your venue, to learn and to understand the industry – at the end of this period there is a well-managed, industry savvy 2nd year apprentice to go full or part time.  An accelerated apprenticeship pathway.
  • SBA’s can manage their college studies to complement their apprenticeship – do some business units, if a kitchen apprentice do some Front of House – incredible opportunities to develop a great and valuable employee.
