Joshua Murphy

Joshua joined Gloucestershire College in 2012 from Brockworth Enterprise School. He started out on the Level 1 Catering course and progressed to the Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Professional Cookery.

I did work experience at the 2 Michelin Star restaurant, Le Champignon Sauvage while I was studying at GC, which showed me the fine dining side of catering and completely changed the path I wanted to go down.

After college, the skills and experience I gained on my course earned me a full-time position as Chef de Partie at Le Champignon, where I worked for a year. I’m now Commis Chef at Lucknam Park, learning under celebrity chef Hywel Jones and have even been back to GC several times as a guest chef.
