Robert Smith, Q.A Brewer, talks about his experience mentoring and training apprentices and the enjoyment of working with young people who are really keen to learn new things and move forward with a career in brewing. Alastair Hook, Founder and Brew Master, explains how his company has benefited from this apprenticeship scheme, including the financial benefits of apprenticeships and the effectiveness of employing young energetic members of staff.
Meantime Brewing hadn’t employed apprentices before so they asked the London Apprenticeship Company to help them recruit, employ and manage the training of their apprentices for them. The scheme has been a great success – see more case studies here.
