Welcome to Academy
The Academy for Training & Development Ltd specialises in delivering work based training to people of all ages and backgrounds in the hospitality and catering industry across the Southwest.
Our head office is based in Exeter and serves as a training / resource centre which is available to both learners and assessors. We also have satellite centres across the Southwest in Torquay, Barnstable, Plymouth and Sidmouth. We are part of SWATPro (South West Association of Training Providers) – a consortium of training providers in the South West of England.
We understand that the hospitality industry can be demanding, therefore the training we provide is organised and flexible to meet with the requirements of both the employer and employee including evenings and weekend appointments.
In order to meet these demands Academy employs a number of training consultants, who have been recruited from within the hospitality and catering industry and have up to date knowledge and expertise.
All our training consultants have responsibilities for assessment, mentoring, coaching and the support of the learner in the work place to ensure that they can relate to employers and learners and best meet their needs and expectations.
We offer a range of accredited qualifications and course such as Apprenticeships, Diplomas (formerly known as NVQs) and Short Courses e.g. Food Safety, Health & Safety, Personal Licence and First Aid. We can also deliver bespoke courses, which can be tailored to your requirements.
