Pabulum launches its first Aspiring Leaders Development Programme

On Saturday 18th January 2020, Pabulum and HIT training joined together to launch the Pabulum Aspiring Leaders Development Programme 2020. The first cohort of 18 Executive Chef Managers, Group Managers and Support Chef Managers met at Pabulum’s office in Fleet, Hampshire to kick off the programme.

The Aspiring Leaders Development Programme has two broad objectives:

  • Management development for Executive Chef Mangers and Catering Managers to progress to Group Operations and Support Chef Managers
  • Management development for Group and Support Chef Managers to progress to Operations Managers

Funded through the Apprenticeship Levy Scheme the successful participants will achieve apprenticeships in either an advanced Level 3 in Supervision & Leadership, a Higher Level 4 in Hospitality Management or a Higher Level 5 in Operational Management.

Sue Frayn (Business Director) said:

“I am thrilled that 18 of our shining stars have put their name forward to give their free time to personally advance themselves.  Since joining Pabulum in 2018, we have focussed on our people because they are our greatest single asset”.

Dan Roche (Executive Chef Manager, Burntwood School) said:

“Having attended the launch of the programme today, I am feeling really good. I’m excited and feel like I am in a privileged position within Pabulum, knowing that I am respected and trusted by my peers to undertake this personal development programme. It’s great to be part of a company that wants to invest in their people.”
