Hospitality & Catering

Take a look at the Lake District, with growing numbers of people visiting to enjoy the area’s food and lifestyle, there is a growing range of career opportunities throughout the region.


We are on the doorstep of one of the biggest tourist areas in the UK, so to have an exciting, skilled department that will give you amazing opportunities at college and beyond, is not just a smart idea – it’s essential.

We’ve got great professionals in the kitchen, who can show you how to source the best ingredients, from smoking to foraging. That’s why our graduates have worked with some of the best in the industry, Simon Rogan and Jean Christophe Novelli to name just two. But, what a two!

Imitating my favourite celebrity chefs at Christmas time whilst they created festive meals was a fond memory of my childhood. My passion for cooking grew as I got older so it was only natural for me to come to College to study Catering and Hospitality to pursue my dream of travelling the world on cruise ships as a chef.
