Hospitality student Phillip Dixey
After initially doing an engineering course 19-year-old Phillip Dixey decided to change career path and, having spoken to a careers advisor at the college, signed up for a Level 2 qualification in food and beverage service.
The course covers all aspects of restaurant service – including silver service, how to lay tables correctly, and deal with different types of customers – giving students the skills to impress employers when they are looking for jobs in the future.
Phillip said: “The course was really enjoyable and the skills I learnt will give me the opportunity of a career in many different areas of the industry.
“My confidence had taken a bit of a knock after deciding I didn’t want to continue with engineering, but this course changed all that and I found something that I’m good at!”
Phillips is now intending to progress to the Level 3 qualification in food and beverage service.
