WelTec’s internationally recognised School of Hospitality is expanding the range of programmes it offers following the success of a new Advanced Diploma in Cookery. The Diploma prepares people to work in commercial kitchens with a view to supervising or running their own, and students learn what it takes to be a Kitchen Supervisor; Sous Chef or Head Chef.

“With this qualification students can pick up a range roles to gain experience, not only in hotels, restaurants and catering companies, but also much more widely in our multifaceted industry,” said Ben Shadbolt, Head of Hospitality.“The Diploma in Cookery has proven to be very popular with thirty more students than we had initially anticipated already enrolled.  We are offering another intake in July and indications are that this programme will continue to generate high interest.”

WleTec is also about to launch new bakery qualifications after the baking industry, including bakeries in supermarkets, artisan bakeries, cake shops and cafes, approached WelTec to see if they could meet demand for training.
