“The national lockdown put a strain on the service industries, however, through innovative delivery and strong collaboration we have been able to provide the best possible experience to our students.
“We are delighted that this has been recognised and we are looking ahead to the coming year where we expect to provide even greater opportunities to our learners as our campus café and restaurant reopen to the public.”

Our commercial catering outlets, a restaurant and a café, enable our students to hone their skills learned in lessons, so that they are equipped with the skills, knowledge and behaviours that employers want.
