Tennent's Training Academy receives gold award for helping youth employment in Glasgow

The Tennent’s Training Academy (TTA) has been awarded the prestigious Investors in Young People Gold accreditation for its work with youth employment in the hospitality industry.

The glowing recognition sees the TTA become the first ever hospitality facility to be bestowed with the gold certification by the people management specialists.

The report applauded the training facility for its outstanding work with young people, particularly those who come up against challenges to employment.

And staff were highly praised for their work in showcasing the hospitality industry as a career option and opening the eyes of young people to the rewarding careers available within it.

Established in 2010, the TTA works with a range of suppliers and trainers to deliver courses specifically designed to help young people, including school children, gain insight, skills and the essential experience to find employment within the hospitality trade.

The TTA works closely with those who might face conventional barriers to work, in particular those with learning disabilities, recently re-homed, long-term unemployed and young people who are recently out of prison.

Stephanie Wade, Director of the Tennent’s Training Academy, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised with the gold award by the Investors in Young People. 

"As the first hospitality industry to be awarded the title, it means a huge amount to all of the staff and everyone involved in the TTA. We are passionate about working with young people and opening their eyes to a growing industry as a career option with long, enjoyable and successful prospects.” 

The TTA also delivers a vast range of courses that support the hospitality industry by delivering over 50 accredited courses designed to help those just starting out or staff already working within it. 

Courses range from drink and food service to pub and cellar management, personal license and door supervision.
