Doncaster College’s Waterfront Restaurant has been awarded a very prestigious AA College Rosette Award and Gold accreditation, recently.
A year ago the AA along with The Hospitality Guild began a new accreditation system for hospitality and catering colleges, although still in its infancy it has become well established and well recognised by both industry and employers within the catering and hospitality industry.
The Hospitality and Catering Department at Doncaster College felt they were ready to apply for the accreditation and the AA award, and following a rigorous assessment process and visit by an AA inspector they were delighted to receive an AA college rosette award and Gold accreditation by The Hospitality Guild which recognises the high standards of teaching, learning, quality and presentation of food and the food and beverage service that is offered in the Waterfront Training Restaurant.
Amanda Gleadall, Programme Coordinator for Catering and Travel at the College said, ‘We are extremely proud and privileged to have received these awards and it is confirmation of how hard both the staff and students work on a daily basis where we constantly showcase the skills of our students and work with the local community who help our student to aspire to a career in this diverse industry.
These awards assure present and future students and customers of the quality of the provision we offer.’
The feedback from the report was excellent and a few examples are listed:
• Learners are paid for work experience on many occasions – this is not only a fabulous opportunity for learners but also a strong indication that learners are prepared well for work – a model that could be used by other providers.
• The college works brilliantly with the space and resources they have – constantly looking at new and innovative ways to improve their offering and be commercial / sustainable.
• The college uses its Alumni brilliantly to bring to life the career opportunities created by studying there
The aim of the awards process is to improve professional development across the industry and recognise excellence in education is a major part of that.
Colleges can now use their accredited status as a way to attract new learners and demonstrate to employers that they are one of the best places to develop skilled staff to meet their business needs.
