CATERING STUDENTS GET TASTE OF SPAIN ON WORK EXPERIENCE TRIP
The restaurants and cafes of Spain are beckoning for catering students at City of Wolverhampton College as they jet off for two weeks’ work experience on Wednesday (April 6).
A group of 13 students studying for cookery and hospitality qualifications will spend a fortnight working in restaurants and cafes in the coastal town of Martos to learn about Spanish cuisine and work alongside chefs and hospitality staff to prepare and serve a range of traditional dishes.
To prepare for the trip the students took part in cultural and language workshops to learn about the history and customs of the country and how to communicate with their Spanish colleagues.
Heath Arnfield, curriculum manager for hospitality and catering at the college, said: “After a very successful first trip to Martos two years ago we are really pleased to be returning to the town as staff in the catering establishments there do their utmost to ensure the students benefit from the experience by learning about traditional Spanish food and picking up skills and techniques they can use when they return to England.”
The trip has been organised through the Erasmus+ scheme which enables students and organisations across Europe to work together to improve and develop skills in the future workforce.
