Inverclyde Taste the Industry
On the 21st of February 2017 Tennent’s Training Academy, Tree of Knowledge and Inverclyde Council coordinated employers from across the Hospitality Industry to the St Stephens and Port Glasgow High Schools joint campus, to give the students a real taste of the industry.
Employers such as Kained Holdings, Rosset Butlers, Tennent’s Training Academy, Tree of Knowledge led workshops and activities to promote careers within hospitality. The young people got the chance to cook chicken tacos, prepare chocolate fondant and even tried their hand at mocktail making!
At the beginning of the day, all of the young people were asked how many of them would consider a career in hospitality and then were asked the same question at the end of the day. The amount of people who said they would consider a career in hospitality increased significantly after they had participated in the workshops!
