Compass partners with Marcus Wareing
Compass Group UK and Ireland recently announced a new culinary programme in collaboration with esteemed chef Marcus Wareing. Forward with Marcus Wareing is an enhanced programme that runs alongside a level four senior culinary chef or level five operations departmental manager apprenticeship standard, delivered in partnership with national hospitality training provider Hit Training.
A great supporter in helping chefs reach their potential, Wareing has been instrumental in putting the programme together. Focus areas include sustainability, creating a more diverse kitchen brigade in terms of ethnicity and gender, developing mental first aider skills, mentoring and analysis of different leadership styles and outcomes.
“Forward is a new cutting-edge culinary training programme designed to build skills, grow knowledge and expand imagination, so candidates can take their career to truly exceptional places,” said Wareing. “Candidates will be able to explore every aspect of the modern kitchen, from culture to commerce, question assumptions and challenge conventions with guidance from myself.”
Jon Davies, apprenticeship executive sponsor and MD of Levy UK + Ireland MD, added: “This is such an exciting opportunity for our future culinary leaders, who will be learning directly from one of the UK’s most dynamic and inspirational chefs. We’re particularly proud to be one of the first in the industry to include a dedicated module on sustainability.”
