He has recently spent a week on a business mentorship programme with the aim of setting himself up in business to do photography full-time, through the Prince's Trust Business Development Scheme

Chloe Price

Chloe is a very pleasant student in the class, always helpful and willing to work.  Chloe has been volunteering in the college restaurant as an addition to her catering option. This has been a great help to the restaurant staff during a busy service, and Chloe is making the most of the opportunity to develop her skills in all aspects of service.

Chloe has also worked really hard to pass her Level 2 Functional Skills English, and was winner of the Student of the Term in the first term.  Chloe is hoping to be accepted onto the Level 1 catering course.

Amy Todd

Amy has continued following her passion for cooking from her school days by choosing to study catering as her optional career path each week in college.

Amy is working hard to improve her knowledge and skills set to increase her employability prospects in what is a very competitive industry.

Amy has taken an active part in organising and raising money for her peers so that they could take part in the British National Sports final and organising events to support Guide Dogs for the Blind.  Amy is progressing onto the Preparing for Employment course in September.
