Foundation students recently visited the food department for a butchery taster session, accompanied by their Course Manager Julie Gray.
During the session they took part in a knife safety skills workshop, introducing them to the department’s health and safety in the workplace programme, Be Wise. They also made some excellent steak burgers, which are been sold in the College’s farm shop. All the students were engaged throughout the session and were enthusiastic to learn new skills.
The students are a real credit to their teaching staff and to themselves, and more than welcome back to the butchery department any time.
The butchery department is planning to hold a number of taster sessions for current students, which will take place on a Monday afternoon. If you are interesting in taking part in one of the sessions, please contact our butchery lecturer Douglas Ewen.
