Hotel and Catering Training Co., London (England).
Aimed at all those involved in the supply of training and vocational education for the hospitality industry, this report summarizes findings of the research report, "Training Who Needs It?" It draws out and explores in more detail key issues relating to the provision of training, support, and related initiatives for the industry. Section 1 provides a summary of the level of training activity and the extent to which training initiatives are known and used. Section 2 explores the industry's training need. It looks at recruitment difficulties, skill shortages, and constraints on training activity. Section 3 presents a summary of the industry's awareness of training and related initiatives--particularly those which are supported by the government. It covers Investors in People, National and Scottish Vocational Qualifications, and government training schemes. Section 4 explores the provision of training to the catering and hospitality industry and licensed retailing sector. It gives an overview of each type of training provider--colleges of further and higher education, publicly funded training providers, and private training companies/consultancies--and then examines the main supply-side issues affecting their training provision to the industry. Section 5 identifies gaps in training provision with industry demand and provides a summary of action points for providers to operate more efficiently in the future to meet a real industry need.
