Age Isn’t a Barrier


It’s a common myth that new careers are only open to young people. We have seen many more maturechefs learners enter the world of hospitality and catering. Employers are open to recruiting older people for their experience and people skills – so please don’t think you are too old to sign up with us.

Government supported funding for training is now quite complicated but we aim to provide free training wherever possible. Generally, The Hospitality School, through our contracts with UK Government, is able to offer free training to you if you are between 16 – 24 or if you are older than 24 and are currently unemployed. Outside of these you will be able to obtain a learning loan from the Government which you only start to pay back once you start to earn over £21k.
