The network upskills business owners, managers, chefs and front of house staff. 

Collaborating with industry, the network designs, develops and delivers responsive, bespoke and flexible training courses to address the ongoing needs of businesses.

The Restaurant & Hospitality Skillnet is very valuable to our sector and our business. Each of the trainers was an expert in their areas and gave us great advice on applying what we learned to our own workplaces. Meeting people with varying backgrounds at the training was also a great plus. The small class size was ideal for this knowledge sharing and networking.
