This programme provides students with the advanced knowledge and skills to be an effective front-of-house professional in the food and beverage sector.

From day one, students will be welcomed into our student-run training restaurant, Windows, and the purpose-built barista workshop. Students will work up to serving and making coffee for paying public guests, with guidance, support and training from our tutors.

Students will learn how to effectively communicate with customers, serve food and drinks in a professional way, apply health and safety, food safety and security practices to their work, and learn about standard operating procedures in the hospitality industry.
