Taught by industry leading chef educators, blended learning combines in-person teaching and online education, which is a transition away from the days when a teacher would stand up in front of a room and lecture for an hour. This is largely thanks to the rapid development of technology, which allows us to learn at a faster, broader rate. The blended learning approach is extremely flexible, meaning that hospitality students can study and work at the same time. We work closely with our students to offer our unique career related programmes which includes an industry externship, ensuring students gain the necessary skills to be confident in a commercial culinary environment.
