About this hub

Our trainee catering programme within Ashleigh Wellbeing Hub operates progressive training modules which see participants acquiring skills in food preparation and presentation, nutritional education, food safety and hygiene and stock control.

The hospitality unit concentrates on front-of-house which includes the ordering and serving of food, waiting and cleaning of tables, sales and general customer services.

We offer opportunities for trainees to gain recognized qualifications in work based skills and ensure the support out trainees receive is focused and training programmes are tailored to individual needs in order to provide a positive learning environment and the confidence to seek employment.


Prices will depend on the length of your session(s) and the level of support you need. As an example a full day with one of our services would typically start at around £58. Please note that you will be assessed on the levels of support you need.
