Our popular Catering & Hospitality Course teaches students all about the diversity of the catering and hospitality industry, and what it’s like to work with food. It delivers a tailored curriculum, designed to ensure that students leave with the knowledge and qualifications required for the industry.
As well as gaining a wide range of skills, students will also learn about customer service, basic food hygiene, food preparation and customer service. And learning isn’t just confined to the classroom, students get to celebrate diversity as part of the course, by providing catering for cultural events.
Students also provide practical catering for their fellow students who are enrolled here on other courses, as well as St-Eds staff, creating a real working kitchen experience. They learn how to develop menus, understand dietary requirements and how to prepare and cook meals in a live kitchen environment.
“I enjoy running my course, it is great to see my students growing in confidence and gaining skills that can be used in so many areas of the hospitality industry”.

Sarah joined St-Eds in September 2014, having worked in the hospitality and catering industry for over thirty years. As St-Eds is a working kitchen, she spends her mornings instructing students on preparing, cooking and serving snacks and lunches for staff and fellow students on-site. Afternoons are then spent working on course theory. Many of her students begin with very little confidence in the kitchen and Sarah gains great satisfaction from seeing their confidence and catering abilities grow each day, whether from mastering the art of baking the perfect cake, or gaining the confidence to serve lunches across the counter.
