Accessing a Reliable Supply Chain for Talent with Hospitality Maine
2020 Dennis Food Show Breakout Session
2:00 PM, Tuesday, April 21st
Hospitality, the number two industry in Maine, needs a reliable talent supply chain and next generation leaders. This home-grown approach, the HospitalityMaine Apprenticeship program, is a new path to strengthen and professionalize the hotel and restaurant workforce in Maine.
Enrolled apprentices will EARN while they learn, being taught and coached by experienced professionals at hospitality businesses committed to their success. Credit is given for documented prior experience and education, tailoring progress through the program to the individual apprentice. Every apprentice can earn a raise by reaching certain milestones during the program. Upon successful completion, the apprentice will receive a Certificate from the Maine Department of Labor that evidences the professional competencies gained by the former apprentice.
