Catering and Hospitality

GC is the main provider of hospitality, catering and chef training in the county and our former students have gone on to work with Raymond Blanc and at other Michelin starred businesses!

The catering and hospitality sector is huge in the UK. It has grown despite the recession and is likely to remain strong, offering plenty of opportunities for skilled and experienced people.

You could become a food and beverage manager, kitchen assistant, head chef, sous chef, commis chef, hotel manager, housekeeper, conference and banqueting manager or restaurant manager.
