Catering & Hospitality Employer Day

Catering & Hospitality


Employer Day is an annual event where the College invites guest speakers into the department to hold a variety of industry and employment themed workshops and lectures.

Last week we welcomed Simon Bolsover, Executive Chef at the Coniston Hotel, and Paul Leonard, from the Devonshire Arms. They spoke about their careers and gave advice to the students on what it takes to work at the highest level in the industry.

Peel Entertainment then introduced the students to all the career opportunities that are available, including working on cruise ships and working in their Alexanders Restaurant in Skipton.

In the afternoon it was great to welcome back ex-student of 2016/2017, Tom, who is now Commis Chef at Rudding Park Hotel, and his colleague Paul Warner. They both held a demonstration on cooking a pigeon dish and a scallop dish.

Stanforths of Skipton came and gave a short butchery skills demonstration and then finally, the group was joined by another of our famed ex-students, Consultant Chef, Stephanie Moon. Stephanie, who attended Craven College over 30 years ago, gave a talk to the students about her career and her experiences.

Richard Newall, Catering and Hospitality tutor, said: “Employer Day is always a great event for our students to learn about what opportunities there are for them in the catering industry. This year It was a real bonus for Craven College to welcome back former student Stephanie Moon who remembers her time here, thirty years ago, with great affection. We are proud that Stephanie credits the College with setting her off on the path to the great success she has had in the industry.”
