Aqib Banaras - Catering and Food Profession Level 1

  • Studied: Catering and Food Profession Level 1

"I chose Blackburn College because of the huge variety of courses on offer. I initially came to a taster event and really enjoyed it. The facilities here are great! My fellow students are also all really friendly and respectful and staff are always supportive and kind."

"For some reason, I was certain I wasn’t going to enjoy Catering and Hospitality, but I really have – so much so that I’m now certain I want to pursue it as a career. My confidence has improved a lot since starting at Blackburn College, as I used to be really shy and now I feel outgoing!"

"I’ve even had the opportunity to undertake a work placement at a café, where I did everything from prepping ingredients to pot washing. I can take these skills with me on my journey to becoming successful in the restaurant industry."

"If you’re looking to progress onto an Apprenticeship, I really recommend studying a full-time course first like I did – as I’ve now secured one with Blackburn Youth Zone. "
