Suzy Jackson, executive director of the Hospitality Guild, said: "It’s high time that the role of organisations that fund, train and employ apprentices is recognised for their contribution to growing a new generation of hospitality professionals."
Nominations, which can be made via the Hospitality Guild website, close on 12 October with the winners set to be recognised in a December event at the House of Commons which will also see the launch of the Hospitality Guild Young Hall of Fame showcasing the work of its partner organisations.
"We’re witnessing a huge growth in the numbers of people completing apprenticeships. In the last year alone nearly 15 per cent more people completed an apprenticeship with a hospitality employer. Over 26,000 people dedicated themselves to a programme of training while at work and tens of hundreds of companies have made these opportunities possible," Jackson added.
