Studying: Professional Cookery NVQ Diploma Level 3

Previous School: Spalding Academy

I have always wanted to study Catering ever since studying Food Technology in Year 7. My sister came to Boston College and told me all about the course. I then attended an Open Event and saw that the Catering facilities were a lot better than other colleges that I had looked around.

You learn so much at College. The course gives you the freedom to experiment and prepares you for industry. We learn in professional kitchens and bakeries, with the latest equipment. As we are preparing food for the Lime Restaurant, it’s great to receive real-life feedback from customers.

The course lecturers are ‘spot on’ – they are helpful, supportive and are honest with you regarding feedback which really prepares you. I currently attend College three days a week, taking part in practical lessons every day. I’m also starting a job trial shortly at the two Michelin Star Restaurant Le Manoir Aux Quat’saisons.

Once I finish College, I would like to gain employment within the industry; hopefully at Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons.
