Two of Tameside College’s Food and Hospitality Supervision students Zac Wolfe and Jordan Philburn secured silver medals in the semi-final stage of the World Skills UK Front of House Competition in Colchester.
They are hoping to secure their place in the final to be held in Birmingham in November. If successful they will represent the UK in Abu Dhabi in 2017.
Both students received their silver medals from Craft Guild of Chefs, by showing their skills in table layout, making crepe suzette and preparing coffees to gain their medals.
Zac and Jordan have shown their determination in the competition, which will now become tougher in the final selection in Birmingham, as they will have to carve duck at the table, slice smoke salmon and serve customers in the final setting as well as demonstrating other high end hospitality skills.
John Holden, Hospitality tutor at Tameside College said:
“Both Zac and Jordan have amazed me with their abilities and have done me and the College proud. Their medals show that their achievements are recognised in the industry and I’m sure they will both agree that the Food and Hospitality Supervision course at Tameside College has helped them tremendously along the way. The boys need to keep up the good work and one of them hopefully will be attending Abu Dhabi in 2017.”
