Secondary 14-19 Vocational - Professional Catering

Description

This programme features KS4 students enrolled on NVQ level 1 courses in hospitality and catering at Stratford-upon-Avon College.

Students are integrated with older FE students, doing work-related learning in professional kitchens and commercial restaurants.

Warwickshire's education department is a DfES 14-19 Pathfinder tasked with promoting and improving collaboration between schools, FE colleges and training providers. Schools offer work-based learning opportunities to students of all abilities at KS4, providing every student with an opportunity to spend one day each week in the world of work. Headteachers from St Benedicts RC High School and Stratford College explain how links are forged to ensure both the school and college maximise opportunities from the partnership.

Key points:

  • Vocational education is not just for disaffected students
  • Keep the kitchen environment as realistic as possible - that means lots of bustle and shouting!
  • Reinforce health and safety messages at all times whilst in the kitchen
