Level 2 Professional Chef
Previous school: Marches School

I came to SCG because the Catering facilities are the best in the area. Also, studying here has given me the opportunity to be on the Welsh Junior Culinary team. This achievement looks great on my CV, we train with some of the best and get good contacts from it. I currently work in Sebastians in Oswestry which has two AA Rosettes. I eventually want to work my way up and be a head chef.

Level 3 Professional Chef Diploma
Previous school: Shrewsbury Academy

I would love to go on to study for a degree in something like nutrition. My tutor is currently helping me look at possible university courses that might suit me. After that I would either like to find a job in that field or possibly go into teaching. The whole feeling around campus is a really positive one. All the teachers are supportive and want us to do well.
