case study

In just over three years, Oliver Shore has gone from dreaming of a career in cookery to working full-time as a chef and even serving a meal for Sir Richard Branson.

Oliver first came across cooking as a potential career when he studied food tech at school. He enjoyed it so much he thought it would be a great career to pursue at college.

The proximity of Banbury and Bicester College and the quality of the courses on offer were attractive to Oliver, so he registered to attend one of our Open Events. This was a great opportunity for Oliver to find out more about the Level 3 Professional Chef’s Diploma, the hospitality and catering facilities and staff - something he clearly enjoyed: “Seeing the kitchens and becoming more aware of what I could learn was great. The staff were friendly and helpful, too”.
