The college used the grant to purchase new equipment for the restaurant which gives Catering and Hospitality students the opportunity to learn in a real working environment under the supervision of trained chefs. Tony Pecoraro, Food Service Lecturer and Restaurant Manager commented
Purchasing new equipment for the restaurant enabled us to modernise our facilities in line with the catering industry. It will be of great benefit to our students.
The Savoy Educational Trust is an independent, grant giving charitable trust, whose main aim is to advance and develop education, training and qualifications within the hospitality industry.

Havering College fashion student Ruqiya Ahmed has been selected as one of 20 finalists on the acclaimed Fashion Futures course, securing herself a place at their Summer School with the opportunity to showcase her work at London Fashion Week 2017.
Ruqia has been attending industry led workshops on Saturday mornings for the past 10 weeks, preparing a garment to present to a panel of industry experts. The panel selected the 20 finalists from a group of 60 budding designers from Greater London and the surrounding areas.
I am super excited as I am loving being a part of FAD’s Fashion Futures Competition and cannot wait to show my work at London Fashion Week. It's an incredible opportunity.
The fledgling designer is currently studying at the college's £6 million Centre of Creative Arts in Hornchurch, Greater London. The college holds Artsmark Gold status from Arts Council England in recognition of its commitment to, and excellence in, arts education.
Havering College’s Assistant Principal for the faculty of Arts and Science, Pauline Franckel, commented “Ruqiya is a committed, hardworking and talented student, so it’s no surprise she made the finals of FAD Fashion Futures. We are extremely proud of her for getting this far and wish her the best of luck in the final stages of the competition!”
Barbering has become a fast growing industry with male grooming now high on the agenda for many men. Students will learn skills such as cutting hair, styling and dressing hair, facial hair cutting and facial care in a realistic hairdressing environment where they can practice and demonstrate their skills.
At our Open Event on March 15th we had former Hairdressing student Chris Austin, owner of Old Leigh Barbers in Leigh-on-Sea. Chris was giving live demonstrations such as hair and beard trimming to visitors and members off staff throughout the event.
Eleanor Lockhart volunteered herself early in the academic year for a work experience placement in London with a charity called Children England, even though she had never travelled to London on her own before. Eleanor attended on time, every day, and participated in a whole week of work and events. At one event the employer asked Eleanor to stand up and speak publicly (totally on the spot) and although she had never done this before, she did it! Eleanor overcame nerves and gained a glowing reference from the employer. As a result of this good impression the employer has offered further placements and also referred the College to another charity based in the Guildhall in the City of London, who want to support us with work experience placements.
Eleanor was a student with us last academic year and we have seen her grow in confidence from when she first came to the College. This experience shows maturity on Eleanor’s behalf with the way that she put herself out there to take on the challenge and overcome some of her fears.
Those who take part know that people perform better when they can be themselves.
Participating employers demonstrate their work in 10 areas of employment policy and practice, from training to community engagement. At the same time, staff from across each organisation complete an anonymous survey about their experiences at work.
Organisations then receive their scores, enabling them to understand what’s going well and where they need to focus their efforts, as well as see how they’ve performed in comparison with their sector and region.
