Would you like to learn how to cook in the best rated student kitchen in the region? Or how about getting experience in front of house roles in a People 1st Gold rated restaurant? Maybe even learning about hospitality and catering from some of the very best in the industry, including chefs and restaurant managers who have done stints at some of the finest eateries in the country, such as Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s River Cottage and more locally, The Milestone? If you choose to study a catering or hospitality course at The Sheffield College you can do just that!
The Hospitality industry consists of various exciting sectors, including hotels, restaurants, cruise ships, contract catering, coffee shops and pubs. It involves lots of different job roles, meaning you will have every opportunity to find what interests you most and get started on the career you want. You could find yourself working as a chef, waitress, events co-ordinator or even as a manager. We work with employers of all sizes across Sheffield, who help us to shape our curriculum so if you do a course with us you can leave us safe in the knowledge you’ve got the skills and experience today’s employers are looking for.
We have our own onsite restaurant, The Silver Plate, where you’ll learn in real surroundings, with some of the best equipment and facilities around.
We host regular theme nights, tasting menus, bistro nights (more recently, one in conjunction with Sheffield’s top restaurant, Rafters) and lunches where you’ll get the opportunity to cook for and serve real customers - after all there’s no better way to get experience.
We offer courses and apprenticeships at every level, with various opportunities to specialise in different areas of catering or hospitality. Whether you're looking to enter a career in bread making and patisserie, or just want to brush up on your cake decorating skills, we've got a course for you!
