The UnityWorks Apprenticeships Scheme is an 12-month training programme in the catering industry taking place in conjunction with our sister organisation Unity Kitchen. 

It offers fully accredited training, NVQ qualifications and practical work experience in all aspects of catering and hospitality to people with disabilities

Apprenticeships usually last for 12 months but we can work with you to design a programme that's right for you.

Each apprenticeship includes:

  • Practical experience in a whole range of catering and hospitality operations including: front of house, barista skills, food preparation, bakery and salad and sandwich preparation

  • Accredited qualifications and short courses including: NVQs 1 & 2 in Catering & Hospitality, CIEH Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering and a Health & Safety at Work Certificate.


Run in partnership with Westminster Kingsway College, our apprenticeships are also accredited by the National Apprenticeship Service. Our classroom-based training courses are accessible for people with learning disabilities. You'll train using 'easy read' course materials and multi-media technology, with support from a learning buddy if you need. 

You'll get support to plan your future career from our specialist employment advisors. And there may be opportunities to apply for future paid roles at Unity Kitchen and Unity Coffee – giving you the chance to progress your career with us.
