Pub apprenticeship launched to tackle hospitality staff shortage

Words: Eva O’Beirne

This three-year course is a work-based learning programme in which apprentices will be able to work, earn, and learn to become fully-qualified bar managers.

Launched by Dublin’s Griffith College to tackle the crippling shortage of hospitality staff, the degree is the first of its kind in Ireland.

The Bar Manager Apprenticeship Degree hopes to reverse the pub sector’s post-Covid struggle as nine out of ten hospitality businesses are experiencing problems recruiting staff, according to a Fáilte Ireland survey released in February.

The programme has been launched by the Vintners’ Federation of Ireland (VFI) and Griffith College, with the support of Solas, the state agency for further education.

The course will be available through Griffith College in Cork, Dublin and Limerick, and will be launched by the Minister of State for Further and Higher Education Niall Collins on Monday in The Old Quarter pub in Limerick city.
