Our catering students recently completed work experience placements much to the delight of their employers. 

It cannot be stressed enough how beneficial work experience placements are for any student. Not only do they help to shape students’ understanding of the working environment, but they also present them with so many opportunities for development.

It is an excellent way to put the skills learned on a course into practice and it can become the first step towards a successful career in the relevant industry, as was the case with Professional Cookery Level 2 Diploma students Hayden Barber and John Caadan who were offered jobs at the end of theirs.

Both Hayden and John carried out their placement at The London Stadium where they produced a canape menu for a professional networking event. They were complimented by guests for their smooth service of the food and drinks and also received praise from Head Chef Gary Foakes: 

It has been a great week. Well done to the students, we hope they have taken something from their time here.

Similarly, NVQ Level 2 student Charley Trowbridge completed her work experience at The House of Commons where she was exposed to various kitchens and had to prepare various foods. Despite feeling apprehensive on her first day, Charley took a lot from her placement. Speaking of her time there, she said:

Overall, I really enjoyed myself. I grew in confidence, learnt new skills, and have gained more knowledge. I got to experience different parts of the industry and gained an idea of what I like doing and what sort of chef I want to become in the future.

Students also carried out placements at The Ritz, Table 19 Golf Club and The Shepherd and Dog amongst others. A huge congratulations to all of them – keep up the hard work!
