St. Johns Hospitality and Catering 1 at Cambridge Regional College

Course description

Based at the impressive St John's College in central Cambridge the small and highly supported hospitality and catering course offers a unique blend of employability, industrial experience and work placement.

Young people attend the college three days per week, taking a vocational role each day in front of house, kitchen or preparation rooms.  

Entry requirements

This opportunity is offered to a small number of young people who have a genuine interest in hospitality and catering and have developed the confidence to manage in a work place environment.  Most young people on this programme will have an EHCP and be working at Entry 3.

Entry is on an assessment basis.

Early application is strongly recommended due to high interest and the small yearly intake.



In addition to the entry qualifications listed, the offer of a place on the course is subject to the outcomes of initial assessment, which will be taken at the College as part of the admissions process. Please note that entry criteria may vary quite significantly between courses at the same level. This is to take account of the specific skills needed for success on particular courses, the length of the course and the requirements for progression to the next level. Entry criteria are given as a guide, and the exact requirements in order to obtain a place on a particular course will be confirmed following attendance at a Welcome Event/Interview.
