What’s it all about?

Making certain that everybody has a great time is highly rewarding thing to do. Whether you choose to do that as a host or restauranteur, or if you long to be creative in the kitchen, hospitality is a high energy world with huge opportunities.

Working from our commercial restaurant you will gain invaluable experience right from the start, preparing and delivering service daily. You’ll be able to use that experience to launch a career or as a platform for further study - perhaps at uni or under a famous chef.

What will I do?

On-site at Edmunds restaurant there are three commercial kitchens where you will begin your training learning kitchen skills, pastry and service. 

You’ll be expected to work hard and you’ll get a sense of the pressure and the hours that always go with the catering industry. Will you be able to handle the heat?

Where could it take me?

If you’re enthusiastic and hard working you could go far. The industry offers obvious opportunities for travel and adventure, as well as lifestyle businesses. There’s no doubt that it takes a lot of dedication and involves some risk, but vision, imagination and effort are always rewarded.

What people say

“I’ve travelled the world with this industry, working with top chefs in some of the finest venues. The possibilities are endless and exciting in hospitality, but I believe studying at West Suffolk College is the best place to start”

Mike Mulvihill, Director of Service Industries
