The Gold Service Scholarship announces delay to the 2020/21 Competition

The Trustees of the Gold Service Scholarship would like to inform you that, since the hospitality industry has been facing such enormous challenges over the past few months, and under present Government guidelines, it will not be possible to proceed with the normal competition schedule.

As you will know, The Gold Service Scholarship was set up to encourage young people into Front of House Food and Beverage Service, and to help them develop their skills and give them further opportunities to extend their knowledge.

We very much feel that we have a responsibility to continue this objective, and carry on the mentoring and motivation that the Scholarship provides for excellence in service.

It is hoped that the 2021 competition will take place as soon as it is practical and safe to do so, possibly in the early part of the New Year, and further details on scheduling will be announced once Government advice on events is given the all clear.

Whilst we are disappointed not to be able to commence the 2021 Scholarship schedule at the usual early autumn time, we want to reassure potential candidates that we look forward to the programme being rescheduled in the New Year.

In the meantime, if you do have any questions, please feel free to email:
