Compass Group is set to open a UK training and development academy in 2023 that will support young people from disadvantaged areas to build careers in the sector.
The state-of-the-art physical and online hub will be based in the West Midlands and train more than 12,000 people a year in a range of disciplines, including hospitality, culinary and services.
Being right at the centre of the UK, the Academy will target people in what Compass calls the UK’s ‘cold spots’ – parts of the country with the lowest prospects in education and employment, to provide an opportunity to enter the world of work and develop a fulfilling career.
Here is a first peek at what the academy will look like. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the full video…
