HIT Training, the hospitality industry training and apprenticeship provider, has launched new initiative the HIT Chef Academy to tutor chefs in key industry skills.

So proud to see Devon Apprentice and Chef Academy star Dave Gobbett in the Plymouth Herald! Congratulations to his success in the HITMasterChef competition in the West region! Next up - the National Finals!

Jill Whittaker, Managing Director of HIT Training, comments on the Apprenticeship Levy

Devon chefs were feeling rather crabby when they met for latest meeting of The Chefs' Forum. With students from HIT Training and South Devon College.

The HIT Chef Academy is an innovative new training programme for future culinary stars and aims to meet the demand for highly skilled chefs in the hospitality industry, which is a result of the growth the sector has experienced in the last few years.

"Chefs have closed themselves into little boxes and said they don't want to share talent because of the chef shortage." Hear what else HIT Chef Academy Principal, Paul Mannering had to say to BigHospitality.

HIT Chairman John Hyde: "I’m sure Ofsted chief inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw, when rubbishing ‘cleaning’ and ‘coffee-making’ apprenticeships, did not intend the apprenticeship brand to suffer a similar fate."
