We spoke with cater­ing stu­dent Alis­tair Cold­beck recent­ly, who has spent the last few months study­ing for his Lev­el 3 qual­i­fi­ca­tion in Hos­pi­tal­i­ty Super­vi­sion and Lead­er­ship and he’s excit­ed to return to prac­ti­cal study at our new City Hub campus. 

Alis­tair won the award for Real Work­ing Envi­ron­ment- Front of House Stu­dent of the Year at an inter­nal Col­lege event before COVID-19, back in 2019. We were recent­ly able to invite our cater­ing stu­dents who have been study­ing at home in online and vir­tu­al envi­ron­ments back onto cam­pus to study. 

For our cater­ing stu­dents this is espe­cial­ly excit­ing as they are mov­ing into an entire­ly new com­mer­cial kitchen and train­ing facil­i­ty in our City Hub, full of brand-new, state-of-the-art equip­ment. They will be learn­ing and soon to be work­ing in Fletch­ers restau­rant — where unique­ly our restau­rant is staffed by stu­dents work­ing towards their qual­i­fi­ca­tions in Hos­pi­tal­i­ty and Cater­ing, who are trained and super­vised by indus­try professionals.

Fletch­ers is cur­rent­ly due to open in mid-May 2021.

Of return­ing to cam­pus, Alis­tair said:

I’m glad to be back at Col­lege after lock­down and espe­cial­ly hap­py to be back at the hub for our the­o­ry lessons and for train­ing the lev­el 1s ready for the open­ing of Fletch­ers restaurant 

 — Alis­tar Coldbeck

As well as con­tin­u­ing with his Lev­el 3 stud­ies, Alis­tair has also earned the role of trainee super­vi­sor, which will see him be a part of the man­age­ment train­ing team help­ing prep themed evenings, takeover nights at Fletch­ers and the day-to-day run­ning of a com­mer­cial restau­rant.

He said:

I’m look­ing for­ward to the open­ing of Fletch­ers as it’s an oppor­tu­ni­ty to be a part of the man­age­ment team as well as the chance to pass on my skills and expe­ri­ence to fel­low trainees. A great thing about being at the City Hub is that the loca­tion is towards the cen­tre of the city. A real pos­i­tive is that being back on cam­pus means that I can socialise prop­er­ly with my class­mates rather than being in an online chat. 

 — Alis­tair Coldbeck

Fletch­ers restau­rant will host a spe­cial Gala launch Evening on Wednes­day 19th May, book­ings are now being tak­en and you can take a glance at the menu here.
