Sheffield Teens Try Hospitality

Pupils from schools in Sheffield have been finding out what it takes to get into the city’s hospitality industry.
 
Seventy 14 and 15 year olds were involved with the second annual Spring Forward day, organised by Hospitality Sheffield and the Hospitality Academy to promote the industry as a career choice. 
 
The teenagers took in interactive sessions hosted by some of the city’s hotel brands. They tried table service at the Holiday Inn, making beds at the Jurys Inn and workshops covering everything from leisure clubs to chef skills at the Hilton, the Metropolitan and Sheffiled Hallam University.
 
“This is the second year of Spring Forward, and we’re delighted once again to see young people getting a proper, hands-on insight into the workings of a busy hotel or kitchen operation,” event organiser, Jon Broadhurst, who is head of catering at the university, said.

 

“This is the best way to animate the experience of working in hospitality and it also means we can provide pupils with a career road-map. If someone wants to be a head chef, we can tell them exactly how to get there. That’s really inspiring for kids.”
