Apprenticeships have changed. No longer just for young career-starters, Apprenticeship are an excellent way for to you to progress your career at Imperial London Family of Hotels. You’ll gain valuable new skills and knowledge, and achieve a valuable professional qualification.


What exactly is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a way to combine work, training and study, letting you earn while you learn.
Taking from 12 to 30 months depending on the level, it is comprised of:

  • A nationally recognised Apprenticeship Standard, some of which include specific vocational qualifications.
  • Functional Skills: Maths and English (if required)


Several levels of Apprenticeships are available, depending on your existing skills and qualifications:

  • Intermediate Apprenticeship (Level 2)
  • Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3)
  • Higher Apprenticeship (Level 4 or above, up to Degree level and beyond).


>> General information about Apprenticeships

Will I have to pay for it, like a student loan?

No, there are no student fees – your training costs are paid by Imperial London Family of Hotels.

Do I have to go to college, like day-release?

Not necessarily. Unlike with many other Apprenticeship providers, our highly qualified and industry competent Training Consultants come to the workplace or teach online the required skills and knowledge for the Apprenticeship, which contributes towards the Off-the-Job Training requirement (typically 6 hours a week on average). We run regular drop-in sessions too at ILH, where you can get additional help and support or meet other learners. You also have access to HTP Apprenticeship College’s high quality online resources, and you (and your manager) will be fully supported at all times.

Off-Job Training (OJT) is an essential and valuable part of all Apprenticeships, providing new skills and knowledge. Off-Job Training activities can include:

  • Being taught how to do something new,
  • Undertake e-learning,
  • Mentoring / Shadowing,
  • Working towards the knowledge requirements of the Apprenticeship such as assignment writing,
  • Industry visits / Lectures.

Our job is to plan and monitor the number of required OJT hours.
