Casual Dining Group adds new courses in development programme

The training programme for employees within the hospitality industry focuses on marketing, strategy and finance.

Casual Dining Group (CDG) has introduced a new range of courses in UK universities as part of their industry leading learning and development programme.

First of this is the BA (Hons) Business Management Degree run in partnership with Leeds Beckett University, a 30-month course for operations managers and support centre team leaders.

CDG also added a chef programme University College Birmingham that targets students completing level 2 and above and provides them an opportunity to work in the company.

Lastly, the Elevate programme is for general managers that are looking to progress in having multi-site skills.

“Our employees are the beating heart of our business and we’re dedicated to investing in them and providing them with the courses and tools they need to progress,” Steve Richards, CEO of CDG, said.

“Equally important is attracting quality talent into the hospitality industry and demonstrating the range and wealth of opportunities available in our vibrant sector. I firmly believe these courses will help us with these focuses,” he added.

Other existing training programmes include apprenticeship schemes that support the career development for existing staff and new recruits in kitchen, front of house and management roles, and a programme that provides recruitment, apprenticeships and training for employers who operate at Heathrow Airport.
