FAQs

At Fuller's we care about your development.

Where will I study? 

At one of our seven partner universities or colleges. These include University of West London, Brockenhurst College, Havant & South Downs College, Bath College, Milton Keynes College, Stratford Upon Avon College and Weymouth College. 

Where will I work?

We endeavour to place you at the nearest managed pub to your desired location. 

Do I have to pay for my training? 

No, your training plus any travel expenses to and from training days will be paid for by Fuller’s.

What will I be paid? 

This will depend on your age. If you are 16-20, you will earn £246 per week, if you are 21-24 it will be £308 per week, and if you are 25+ you will earn £328 per week. There is also the opportunity to earn even more through our service charge system.

Will I be given a permanent role at the end of the programme?

We offer all our apprentices a permanent role upon completion of the programme. 

What are previous apprentices doing now? 

We have some great apprentices in our pubs. 

Take Chris at The Old Customs House, Portsmouth, for example. He completed his Commis Chef Apprenticeship with us and was one of the first to go onto the Chef de Partie programme. Go and try his food, but be quick, his dishes are in high demand! 

Callum was also on our Commis Chef Apprenticeship at The Swan Hotel, Staines. His head Chef, Charlie, trained him to a level whereby he could run the pass on busy services all before his 18th birthday – what an achievement!
