Education for Career Success - Join the College; The College is creating new opportunities for young people, working with major employers to give students the chance to gain skills and experience which will lead to successful careers. Below are just a few of our recent projects. College Titanic deal 900 orders a day for apprentices in the Alder Hey in the Park canteen.

Bakery students and staff at The City of Liverpool College have risen to the top of the pack supplying bread to Liverpool's new Titanic Hotel.

The College's Bread & More cafe, which supplies training to students on catering courses has won the contract to supply the hotel with luxury baked products.

College tutor, Gary Hindley said: "It's a real coup for us to become the main bread supplier for this fantastic new boutique hotel. We developed a series of bespoke recipes and after visiting a number of bakeries across the North West, Titanic Hotel Liverpool chose us.

"It really does speak volumes of the quality of our products and what we are trying to achieve at the College. People seem to be appreciating better quality food and bread in particular, so it's becoming a very attractive profession for our student bakers.

"I'm delighted with our achievement and it really is testament to the hard work of staff and students in creating quality products that stand up well in a competitive market."

Titanic Hotel Liverpool's head chef Phil Green said: "Everything we do is completely out of the ordinary and our bread is no different!

"The caliber of the goods the team at the College produce is second to none and we are absolutely delighted to be able to support this innovative scheme, whilst securing what we think is one of the most unique partnerships around."

The new Titanic Hotel features 153-bedrooms and suites, an in-house restaurant, Stanley's Bar and Grill, the city's newest hideaway, The Rum Bar as well as a luxury spa.

City of Liverpool College students are making their own contribution to the new PS237m Alder Hey in the Park hospital, providing food to the hundreds of people delivering the build.

Apprentices from the College are running and working in the onsite canteen, handling between 800 and 900 food orders a day.

The six apprentices working in the kitchen are just a few of the 29 apprentices currently employed through the construction of the new Alder Hey in the Park hospital. Other students are working as apprentices in general construction, plumbing, electrics, steel fixing and business administration.

Laing O'Rourke, the delivery partner for the new Alder Hey in the Park hospital, is working with the college to provide the training opportunities.

Andy Thomson, Laing O'Rourke's project director for Alder Hey in the Park, said: "Laing O'Rourke is committed to driving training and employment through our projects, so having the catering college working with us on the Alder Hey in the Park project fits perfectly with our ethos. We are giving local apprentices and students in the hospitality sector invaluable industry experience, which will be a huge benefit once they qualify."

Elaine Bowker, Principal and CEO of the City of Liverpool College said: "We are working closely with Laing O'Rourke to provide some unique training opportunities from students, not just in construction but everything from administration to catering and engineering."

She added: "The job market is a competitive place but partnerships with international firms like Laing O'Rourke give our students both the experience and qualifications they need, improving their employability prospects."
