In June The Caithness Collection were delighted to announce that two more of their Modern Apprentices completed their SVQ Level 3 in Hospitality Supervision and Leadership in collaboration with North Highland College UHI(NHC).
Emma Farmer and David Henderson both completed their qualification by attending NHC while gaining experience working with The Caithness Collection in their three hotels, The Norseman Hotel Wick, Castletown Hotel and The Pentland Hotel Thurso. They worked in each of the key departments, gaining experience at the coal face and working through to leading the teams to equip for their future career in management.
Andrew Mackay, Owner of The Caithness Collection, said: “It has been very rewarding for us to help Emma and David mature in their roles and to see them learn the theory in the classroom and put it into practice almost immediately, testing themselves in a safe yet challenging environment. The NHC has been fantastic in leading them through the challenges and getting them Industry ready for their future roles in hospitality.
Donald MacBeath, Principal of North Highland College UHI commented “I was delighted to learn of the successful outcomes achieved by both Emma and David. I feel they have both taken full advantage of the excellent training opportunities made available to them through the strong partnership relationship between The Caithness Collection and North Highland College. I congratulate them both and wish them every success in their future careers in the Hospitality sector.“
Emma and David look forward to graduating in September with their qualifications and have taken up management roles within The Caithness Collection.
