Providing Work Experience
Through support from the ALMR and the Yummy Pub Co, Liam Pope, now 19, has just fully qualified as a chef. The ALMR paid for essential training equipment and staff time to allow our school to run an NVQ in catering, and the Wiremill gave Liam a year’s work experience, working a day a week alongside their chef.
“Liam was so good, and we enjoyed having him around so much, we extended his placement beyond the original three months”.
“The Licensed Trade Charity is a fantastic ambassador for a sector that is committed to supporting good causes. The LTC provides young people with first class training and opportunities to forge careers within licensed hospitality. ALMR members work closely with the LTC to support their schools and we are very proud to be a part of their great work.”
Kate Nicholls, Chief Executive, ALMR
