Hospitality & Catering

As a Hospitality and Catering student studying at North Shropshire College, you will be based in our Scholars training kitchen and 40 cover restaurant. Opened in 2013, the training boasts facilities with the latest modern cooking equipment.

You will be expected to work as part of a team, often working under pressure, preparing and cooking meals to order. You will be led by a Head Chef who will ensure you gain the practical skills required to prepare you fully for employment.

The Scholars Restaurant offers a first class front of house service ran by our catering students, supplying meals and snacks to the paying public. The restaurant includes a full customer service reception area, its focus is on creating a warm, welcoming environment, and Scholars covers both bistro style menus and fine dining. With 40 seat capacity the restaurant is well placed to host individual bookings right up to small party groups.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better
