The annual ‘Employer Week’ was organised by Truro and Penwith College’s Hospitality department and Hospitality Table Cornwall (part of the ESF Business Clusters project, which is part funded by the European Social Fund).
The week was designed to inspire students while increasing awareness of the varied careers in the sector and raising aspirations as they rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in the industry.
Tony Duce, Hospitality Course Coordinator at the College said: “Our employer engagement week here at Truro and Penwith College has always been a key part of our learner’s development and journey.
“This week will help give our students the time to interact with future employers and learn different styles of hospitality.”
The College have recently had a big recruitment cohort for hospitality Apprentices in the recent months with hospitality employers. The volume of full-time learners involved in the week suggests the appetite for quality careers and employment in one of Cornwall’s biggest sectors remains strong.
Mark Lewin, Truro and Penwith College’s Training and Development Consultant states: “The Hospitality department at Truro and Penwith College would like to thank all employers for their continuous hard work in inspiring our students and helping grow the industry.
“The College is proud to have such great links with talented individuals and businesses who are passionate about the hospitality industry.”
