Students gain a tasty insight into future career prospects

Trafford College Hospitality students have been given an insight into where their future career or study paths could take them after a jam packed calendar of events to kick start their first term.

The College recently welcomed Manchester Metropolitan University students who visited the Altrincham campus to use the industry standard facilities as part of their Hospitality and Business Management degree. The College enjoys close links with the University, and staff and students were only too happy to show the undergraduates around the facility, including the new £200k kitchen redevelopment.

The department was also thrilled to welcome back former student Sabrina Khan, who is now working hard towards her degree at MMU after completing her BTEC in Hospitality and Management with the College.

Students aspiring to run their own catering business in the future were also excited to welcome local guest chef, Simon Toft, who came to visit the College’s restaurant and cook one of his signature dishes for customers and students.

Simon, whose popular Abersoch bistro, the Dining Room, was recently awarded a distinguished AA Rosette, guided students through a number of culinary techniques as he prepared his menu and answered questions about his career, and how to progress in one of the most exciting industries in the world.

Students were also given some invaluable advice on how to work well under pressure, which came in very handy when they were tasked to exhibit at this year’s Cake and Bake show, which took place between 10-13 November. The annual show, which attracts thousands of visitors every year, saw students being put to the test with live bake-offs, demonstrations, and talks with visitors and prospective students on what they have learned on their course so far.

Student, Sohaib Sabir, who took part in the guest chef dining experience commented: ‘It was a great experience having Simon here to teach and show us the kind of food that he produces in his restaurant. I feel like I have learned a lot from the experience and would love to see more guest chef events during my time here at the College”
