A hospitality charity has teamed up with representatives of the Scottish licensed trade to offer once-in-a-lifetime training experiences for scholars hoping to work in the sector.

The Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland is working in collaboration with the Benevolent Society of the Licensed Trade of Scotland (The BEN) and the Scottish Licensed Trade Association (SLTA) to support the development of the licensed trade.

Providing scholars with the opportunity to learn about the variety and composition of cocktails from some of London’s leading experts, the scholarships will help with development of cocktail lists while broadening their understanding of equipment and suppliers.

‘I know that these scholarships will help to shape the future of the Scottish hospitality and licensed trade industry.’

Established in 1994, HIT Scotland works to inspire and support the hospitality industry by funding exceptional training experiences for individuals working in the sector. In this time, HIT Scotland has awarded over 1,000 emerging talent scholarships and 10,000 bursaries.

The 2016 HIT Scotland Emerging Talent Conference takes place on 4th February at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow. To book tickets, visit
