Catering & Hospitality
Our catering learners receive hands-on training in a professional kitchen classroom, led by experienced tutors who also have industry expertise. We maintain small class sizes to ensure that each learner can reach their full potential. At Green Corridor, learners work on personalised skills development while striving to earn a qualification that includes both job-related and culinary skills, alongside addressing their individual goals.
Our courses within the catering department range from Entry 2 to Level 2 and include a wide range of skills, including cooking, nutrition, budgeting, food safety, and practical job experience. Learners gain practical experience by preparing everyday meals, exploring international cuisines, and serving lunches for the Green Corridor community.
They learn to safely use a range of cooking equipment, producing high-quality dishes. In addition to technical skills, we focus on essential life skills such as time management, problem-solving, and effective communication. We support Learners to grasp the significance of teamwork and are given the skills and opportunities to work independently where possible. We also offer work experience opportunities both on and off-site within the catering industry, enabling students to develop the skills and confidence they need for their futures. Our courses equip learners for success in the catering and hospitality industry and in their personal lives.
While with Green Corridor Anita’s confidence grew exponentially, as did her cooking skills. She started the course wanting to learn about cooking to build her independence skills,but left with a passion for cooking. Alongside her Level 1 in Basic Cookery Skills, she completed a Level 1 Food and Safety course and often presented her creations to the corporate groups.
Anita now has a job working as a catering assistant in a local school.
Jowita started Green Corridor last academic year on our Home Cooking skills course alongside preparing food for corporate groups and all the other learners. Her attendance was over 90% which helped her achieve her Level 1 qualification in no time!
Jowita is now part of our team working as a long-term volunteer! We are continuing to support her into sustainable volunteering or employment at another workplace.
