NEC Group, a Midlands-based venue management company and owner of catering firm, Amadeus, has appointed a group coordinator to expand its apprenticeship programme and deliver more opportunities for youngsters in the local area.

The task has been assigned to Angela Walsh (left) who joins after six years tutoring at Solihull College and University Centre where her roles included supervising hospitality and catering students undertaking apprenticeships with Amadeus.

“Working with students and helping them to build the skills required for their future careers has always been a key motivator for me,” said Walsh.

“This new role allows me to build on my knowledge of how to work with and get the best from company apprenticeship schemes, and mould ours into a well-rounded programme not only for training in catering but a variety of specialities. 

“Already supporting over 29,000 jobs in the region, the NEC Group plays a vital role in the local economy, and this is our chance to support job creation even further. Developing and investing in young talent in the region is also crucial to us retaining it for the years to come.”

The NEC Group currently offers an apprenticeship route through Amadeus- a programme that incorporates a mix of student’s college work plus on the ground training through the caterer’s venue network.

The group says a large number of apprenticeships have been recruited in both front of house roles and as chefs.
