The apprentices and a brief background to their hospitality apprenticeship programmes
- Kerry Borwick (22) is in her second year of the Apprenticeship in Hospitality, Scotland Scheme. She went to Ardnamurchan High School.
- Morven McBean (21) is in the third year of the Apprenticeship in Hospitality, Scotland Scheme. She went to Fortrose Academy.
Kerry and Morven are both employed by The Lovat Hotel Loch Ness, a very popular hotel in Fort Augustus. They are both involved in the three-year Apprenticeship in Hospitality, Scotland programme. They both work on a rotation basis, gaining practical experience in every department within the hotel’s operation. Kerry has really benefited from the great support from the managers in each department. She understands that hard work is required to progress in the hospitality and tourism sector. She is looking forward to the third year of the apprenticeship scheme and building supervisory experience and qualifications. Morven loves learning and earning on the job together with the many benefits of this apprenticeship programme that include free travel, accommodation, apprentice uniforms and laptops. She is keen to progress in food and beverage management on cruise ships once she has finished her third year.
