Catering and Hospitality

Students on the full time Professional Cookery courses have the advantage of working in a professional environment as they prepare and serve food at the Vanilla Pod, the training restaurant at the Tycoch Campus.

These courses prepare students for a career in catering and hospitality. Students regularly compete successfully in regional and national competitions.

Part time short courses, lasting for just five weeks, are offered in Italian, French or Asian cuisine.

Over the last two years 100% of our Entry Level students have progressed to Level 1.

Achieving Level 2/3 will open employment opportunities in general hospitality, food preparation and cooking. For example, almost a third of our Level 2 students gained employment in the industry after completing their course.
