A FEW WORDS FROM CREATIVE HOSPITALITY GROUP ON THEIR EMPLOYER EXPERIENCE…
NPTC Group of Colleges has played a pivotal role in assisting us to train and retain our staff after a long lockdown. Our business is powered by our people and investing in them and their futures through relevant training courses is really important to us. Our customers also benefit from our well-trained teams who are more confident in their abilities and comfortable in their job roles. Training also gives us a competitive edge and makes us a more attractive employer which is particularly key at a time of shortages across the entire hospitality sector.
Our teams have received training in a wide range of areas including hospitality management, food hygiene and safety and hospitality skills. We have also trained a high volume of our staff in mental health first aid and emergency first aid at work, doing this was really important to us as an organisation to ensure our staff are well equipped. The course tutors at NPTC Group of Colleges are accommodating and informative and always receive positive feedback from our staff.
Working with NPTC Group of Colleges has allowed us to access many courses through the Personal Learning Account (PLA). This opportunity has allowed our staff to up-skill and progress with their personal and professional development. The PLA has allowed Creative Hospitality Group to thrive after the pandemic and still have our people at the forefront of our operations.
We look forward to continuing our working relationship with NPTC Group of Colleges.
The Employer of the Month award recognises our employers’ commitment to people and skills development.
