Dylan's Restaurant Group Launches Hospitality Training Academy

12 places a year are available on the fully paid apprenticeship, in all areas of the business.

North Wales restaurant group, Dylan’s launched their hospitality training academy this week.

The Academy aims to help create a sustainable and accessible apprenticeship training programme for young people who are seeking to find a satisfying and rewarding career in hospitality, with a guaranteed job at the end of their course.

Director at Dylan’s, David Evans, said: “We’re inviting 12 young cadets to take part in the 2-year programme, learning and gaining experience in all areas of our business, starting at their own level.”

Successful applicants to the Dylan’s Academy will benefit from a higher than National Minimum Wage pay throughout their training and education as cadets.

David Evans continued: “Over the years, some hospitality businesses have taken advantage of young apprentices by placing work before education, with a very small wage. We will turn this on its head and reward our cadets for their contributions and investment.”

They will spend 35 hours a week on practical learning within the business, and 5 hours a week focusing on written work and essential study, all guided by an experienced Dylan’s Academy Leader and a personal Mentor.
