Acorn Scholarship 2012 now open for entries

The 10th annual Acorn Scholarship is now open for entries.

Developed to help talented individuals realise their potential, the Acorn Scholarship is an independent award created by previous winners of Caterer and Hotelkeeper‘s Acorn Awards.

The prizes on offer include a £2,000 bursary to use for professional development, £1,500-worth of Learnpurple training, a year's subscription to Caterer and Hotelkeeper and a designated mentor who will develop a flexible training plan.

It is a self-nominated award (although you must have the backing of your employer) and is open to all UK residents and all hospitality disciplines - past winners include a restaurant manager, sous chef, nutritionist and catering manager.

The deadline for applications is 21 October 2011, after which 10 finalists will be asked to present their submissions to a high-profile panel of judges.
