Training and developing students to enter and develop a career in hospitality and catering is the very lifeblood of our industry. We need more people coming into our industry to fill the people and skills shortages that limit growth.
So, we were delighted when we came across the video below, where Alistair Wrigley, Commercial Catering Manager at Middlesbrough College explains how he and his team work with students, apprentices and Rational in delivering training.
The scale of catering at Middlesbrough College provides for 13,500 students and 1,000 staff every day. Recent significant growth in the catering requirements at the college led to Alistair Wrigley working closely with Rational to adapt and grow output.
The video looks at how students and apprentices worked with the catering team and Rational to ensure the technology developed by Rational is fully utilised. This is now also part of the college’s academies and wider ongoing catering training. The focus of which is to ensure that students and apprentices go on to develop a career in hospitality and catering.
H&C News would like to congratulate Middlesbrough College, Alistair Wrigley and his team as well as Rational for this innovative example of how education providers and suppliers can work collaboratively. Not just to create the best catering facilities, but also the people who will be working to make them even better in future and developing their own careers at the same time.
