PJ Taste Catering Employer Skills Academy

PJ Taste Catering Employer Skills Academy

The PJ Taste Catering Employer Skills Academy allowed a selection of our catering students to further develop the knowledge and skills they have obtained on their full-time study programme and apply them to practical situations that reflect those they might encounter in the catering industry.

The Sheffield College

PJ taste are proud to be involved with the Employer Skills Academies at The Sheffield College. The experience has been rewarding not only for the students, who benefit from learning about the commercial reality of applying their newly found craft skills into a real work environment, but also for ourselves. It has helped us re-evaluate some of our methods and processes, based on the rigorous and detailed approach of the College and given us an understanding of how to further nurture the new talent which will be essential for the longer-term development of our sector.

It’s improved my confidence. I learnt a lot of new skills, like how to use a knife properly and how to cook different types of meat.
