        HIT Training to offer first UK

        apprenticeship for brewers

        Over two years in the making, the UK’s first brewer
        apprenticeship is being offered to the sector by HIT Training, one
        of the hospitality indsutry’s leading apprenticeship providers.
          Supporting the diverse role of a brewer in small and large
        breweries alike, the Level 4 apprenticeship comprises an 18-month
        programme of six two-day residential workshops run by The
        University of Nottingham’s International Centre for Brewing Science,
        where they will learn about different brewing techniques and styles,
        as well as the chemistry behind the brewing process. The Institute of
        Brewing & Distilling (IBD) has also created online learning materials
        to complement the workshops, while HIT’s trainers will provide 1-2-1
        visits for each aspiring brewer.
