Parkdean Resorts to deliver 200 apprenticeships for its resorts nationwide

Parkdean Resorts is to start delivering up to 200 apprenticeships nationwide after being awarded employer provider status by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.

In a statement yesterday [25 July], the holiday park operator revealed it is now an official apprenticeship training provider and will be subject to Ofsted inspections across its 67 UK holiday parks and central support office in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Apprenticeships will cover roles such as hospitality team member, hospitality supervisor, team leader/supervisor and senior production chef.

Alyson Robson, apprenticeship programme manager (pictured above, centre, with some of Parkdean’s apprentices), said: “The seasonality of our business and peak activity periods occurring at weekends mean that we had to look internally to ensure that we could offer bespoke apprenticeships and programme delivery that would help our people shine.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming our first intake later this year.”

The 200 vacancies will be spread across the country including in North-East England, the Lake District, Devon and Cornwall over the next two years, with apprentices starting from autumn.
