A Hospitality Manager works across a huge variety of organisations including bars, restaurants, cafés, conference centres, banqueting venues, hotels and contract caterers. These managers generally specialise in a particular area, however their core knowledge, skills and behaviours are aligned.
Common to all managers in this role is their passion for exceeding customers’ expectations. A Hospitality Manager has a high level of responsibility and is accountable for fulfilling the business vision and objectives, which requires excellent business, people and customer relation skills. Individuals in this role are highly motivated team leaders that combine a talent for management and specific industry skills and thrive on the customer-facing nature of the role.
End-Point Assessment Components
- On-Demand Test
- Business Project
- Professional Discussion
A 90-minute On-Demand Test with 35 scenario based questions must be completed, timings include 30 minutes worth of reading time. This will be externally set and marked automatically by the assessment organisation and will cover the core and relevant specialist function.
To be researched and written within the 2-month assessment window and submitted at least 7 working days prior to the professional discussion, the 9,000-word business project is designed to give the apprentice the opportunity to demonstrate their wider understanding of the business. The project should look at devising a proposal for an opportunity/challenge/idea to make an improvement to the business.
In the concluding assessment element, the End-Point Assessor leads a 90-minute discussion with the apprentice. The employer can also be present to support the apprentice. The discussion can be planned in advance to allow the apprentice to prepare fully for the discussion which will include areas of the standard not seen in the On-Demand Test or Business Project.
