Our first customer, Level 1 Sports student, Tyler Marshall, purchased a very tasty bag of cookies and was very impressed!

Reaseheath Food Centre – taking stock 2013-2014!

As we draw to the close of what has been a very successful year in the food department, it is important to take stock and reflect on some  key achievements:

BRC 6 Grade A – what an outstanding accolade  for industry to achieve, let alone a college!

Bakery – We now have a fantastic bakery facility, with the standard of student work having been truly exceptional this year.

Butchery – Douglas Ewen joined us in November with a view to heading up the highly anticipated Level 2 Diploma in Professional Butchery.  Douglas has taught across the food department this year, introducing students to the rigors of life within the meat sector.  We hope that the new course will provide a platform for those students who want to ‘multi-skill’ within bakery and butchery, as well as those for whom specialism is key.  Douglas was also successful in entering a group of students in the Britain’s Best Burger competition sponsored by EBLEX, where we came a fantastic bronze!

HE – provision has been strengthened this year, with the validation of our new BSc (Hons) Food Manufacturing with Operations Management, giving a clear pathway from Level 3 food through to Level 6.  We look forward to our first intake of students in September for this course.

Individual Recognition Award – May saw our very own Food Curriculum Area Manager Nick Blakemore  rewarded for his support given to team members.  Nick is a crucial member to the team, who always displays a high degree of empathy and understanding for colleagues and students alike.  Well done Nick!
