What I would highlight I’ve spent the last 3 years studying Hospitality and Catering and I have to admit it has been fantastic! I chose to study Level 3 Hospitality and Catering at Wakefield College because of the opportunities that they offer and how prepared it gets you for life after your course. The three years that I have spent at Wakefield College have been amazing. I’ve met so many new friends and some of the kindest tutors, this has given me so much confidence in myself, which has had an impact on work outside. Catering at Wakefield College allows students to take part in the college’s restaurant sector where everyone gets experience of working in a busy kitchen and a busy restaurant service.

The course is designed to give you an insight into professional cookery, food/silver service, wine and drinks service. You'll also explore the hospitality industry, looking at the supervisory and managerial aspects and see how the industry is evolving and adapting to meet current demands.

Maths and English are key elements of any full-time programme of study in College. If you do not already have a GCSE at grades A*-C in these subjects, you will need to attend extra sessions. These are varied and designed to cater for all ability levels. You'll receive advice and guidance regarding the correct level for you.

Skills in Maths and English will support your full-time course, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They'll also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at grades A*-C. This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.
