Pret A Manger

Grow, Evolve and Excel, from Team Member to Manager, and beyond…

The Pret Apprenticeship offers in-depth training, career progression and industry-recognised credentials. It's about building confidence, gaining life skills and being part of a great team!

We care about your qualities, not your qualifications.

So long as you're passionate about a career in hospitality, we'll support you with everything you need to grow with Pret.

The Team Member Programme

In the first year of your apprenticeship you'll be joining one of our fantastic Pret shops, where you will have the opportunity to complete your Level 2 Hospitality Apprenticeship Standard and choose an area to specialise in… whether that's food preparation in the kitchen or crafting coffees as a Barista!

You'll also attend five Pret Experience Days to learn more about key areas of the business such as our customers, our coffee, and sustainability!

The Leader Programme

This is the next stage of the Pret apprenticeship and can be completed in one to two years – developing your leadership skills, business knowledge and confidence along the way! By the end you'll have completed a Level 3 Hospitality Team Supervisor Apprenticeship and progress as a Leader, with supervisory responsibilities in a Pret shop.

The Manager Programme

This final phase of the apprenticeship journey is a flexible two to four-year programme, where you can gain a Level 4 Hospitality Manager Apprenticeship Standard all the way up to a (fully-funded) BA Business Management Undergraduate Degree. This programme prepares you to become a Manager of your own Pret shop and team!
