What our students say
Simon Vaughan L2

I’m really passionate about cooking and being a chef, so that is why I chose this course. I like getting the chance to learn in a calm environment and covering all the basics you need for the industry. Nowhere else offered the course I wanted to do, and the College has great facilities. After completing this course I aim to progress to Level 3. I dream of achieving my own rosettes at a restaurant I’m working at, and then maybe at a restaurant that I own.
