Hospitality and Catering
At our Hospitality and Catering Academy you'll learn from the best. Our tutors have years of industry experience and you'll get tips from visiting experts - Bruno Loubet and Albert Roux have both given masterclasses to our students. You'll study in our Academy which is kitted out with everything you need to get ahead - from new professional kitchens, a specialist pastry kitchen and Taste, our commercial restaurant where you'll hone your skills catering to paying customers.
To give you the best practical experience we line up work placements with major high-profile restaurants, and enter national competitions. You could be working with professional chefs in the fast-paced environment of top restaurants and major event venues such as Wimbledon and Twickenham Stadium, and winning gold at the World Skills competition in Birmingham.
We also have part-time, informal courses if you're an amateur chef who's been inspired by the Great British Bake Off or MasterChef.
Corey, Professional Cookery Level 3
"I’ve always had a passion for catering, especially desserts, so I wanted to learn the main skills. I took a course here before and got on really well with my chef lecturers so when I heard about the new academy, I knew I wanted to come back. The new space is amazing - and we get to try out what we learn on paying customers in our commercial restaurant. The teachers make the courses really enjoyable and make you want to learn. I want to get straight into work after here and work abroad at some point too and learn other cooking styles."
