Catering hopefuls go to work for race meet suppliers; Coleg Cambria.
COLEG Cambria has signed a winning partnership with a thoroughbred catering company.
Students from the Deeside and Wrexham-based college will be training with the award-winning Horseradish group, which supplies some of the North West's leading venues.
Among the locations it serves are Chester and Bangor-on-Dee racecourses, Chester Town Hall and Speke Hall.
Horseradish has also provided creative catering solutions for the RHS Flower Show, in Tatton Park, and Wales Rally GB.
The collaboration will offer Hospitality and Catering students the opportunity to work with the company, giving them experience of live events, from weddings and parties to race meetings and large public gatherings.
Cambria's assistant principal and director of curriculum, Paula Wood, said: "The partnership between Cambria and Horseradish offers a fantastic opportunity for our learners to further develop the skills they have learnt in college and experience the industry first-hand.
"This makes the education that Cambria provides relevant to the real needs of the sector. We very much look forward to working with Horseradish in partnership to develop the next generation of industry professionals together."
Head of HR at Chester Race Company, Mark Wilcockson, added: "We see this project as beneficial not only for the students, but for Chester Race Company, as we hope to attract enthusiastic talented individuals with the possibility of employment at the end of the term."
They will be on hand to attend events and functions at the world's oldest international football stadium, giving them valuable expertise as part of their Professional Cooking qualification.
The department is also celebrating the success of its own restaurants - Y Celstryn and Hafod - lauded by the AA recently.
Hafod, on the Yale campus, in Wrexham, achieved a highly commended rosette and was recognised as a centre of excellence for food and beverage service, while Y Celstryn, at Deeside, achieved a rosette award.
