Training and progression

We'll invest in you

If we offer you a position at Welcome Break, we'll be doing far more than that. We'll give you the chance to have a great career that could take you anywhere in our business. We promote people based on merit and if you show us ambition we'll invest in those dreams with excellent training and development programmes.


On Boarding

At each level you'll go through an on boarding process that is specific to your role. We'll ensure that it's a blended learning experience by using different ways to train you, whether it's one of our amazing on site team trainers, learning management system or JAM.


Foundations training

Foundations is exactly what it says: we're giving you the essential training and knowledge that you need in order to succeed in your role. Foundations is made up of Welcome Break technical skills and Brand specific training.


Up Skill Academy

Have you ever wanted to stay in your role but continue to learn about your role or even try something new? Well, up skill academy offers you the opportunity to do just that. Assign the learning yourself and then work though it at your own pace.


Future Site Leadership Programmes

Through a structured conversation with your line manger, each of you will be able to identify what that next step is; we don't expect you to stay in the same role forever. Whatever you want to do it couldn't be easier. Get on to one of your Future Leadership programmes. They have been designed to get you ready for the next move! You assign it, you complete it and we support, encourage, and mentor you to succeed.
