Students run the College catering facility, known as the Bell Bar, which provides food and refreshments for staff, students and visitors to the College. Students working in this environment benefit from the experience of providing a much-needed service. Daily tasks include:
- preparing hot and cold food for lunches
- serving drinks and meals
- operating the till
- handling money
- meeting and greeting visitors
- setting tables
- polishing cutlery
... and many more tasks that are associated with working in a catering and hospitality environment.
Students can practice their kitchen skills whilst also gaining an understanding of health and safety, food hygiene, healthy eating and nutrition. They also interact with customers on a regular basis, developing communication and money handling skills.
