It was a case of becoming a faster chef when Loughborough College's Director of Business Development took on kitchen duties for National Apprenticeship Week.
Gemma Knott had to hit the board chopping when she joined Hospitality and Catering students preparing for a busy lunchtime service for a packed Radmoor Restaurant.
“I was skinning and preparing salmon, cod and chicken, taking care of seasoning for meat and fish and then put on to vegetable chopping.
"I was so impressed with the professionalism of our students in the commercial environment of the kitchen and restaurant area.
“They had such a positive attitude and commitment to learning for their profession – and that is a real testament to our International Culinary Olympic medal-winning lecturer and Hospitality and Catering lead Darren Creed.
“It was a privilege to assist with the preparations and I want to thank Darren and all the students for giving me the chance to get such a great first-hand insight into the opportunities on offer at the College.
“Our Executive and Governors are gaining hands on experience across a range of areas in the College for the tenth anniversary National Apprenticeship Week – including testing a jet engine, tackling electrical installation and customer service and working as a childcare assistant in the nursery.”
