Kudos provides training for Westminster Kingsway College students

Caterer Kudos will be providing work experience placements to students from Westminster Kingsway College to train them in events and hospitality catering.

Students will have the opportunity to work at Gibson Hall and Kudos Delivered kitchens on a monthly rotation for four weeks before returning to college.

This initiative will be in addition to Kudos's scheme at Central Hall Westminster for commis chefs from the college, which has been running for several years.

Richard Webb, head chef at Kudos Delivered, who is in charge of the scheme, said: "It is just fantastic that the students from Westminster Kingsway College have this once in a lifetime opportunity to work with some of the best chefs around at such a young age.

"Not only are the students learning about special cooking techniques, allergen information and creating Michelin-starred dishes, but they are also receiving assistance and guidance with their college courses from world class chefs."

Andrew Lansdell, first year professional chef diploma work externships coordinator at Westminster Kingsway College, added: "At Westminster Kingsway College we send our first year professional chef diploma students out on a four-week externship to a variety of top establishments within the foodservice sector.

"Kudos has been working alongside us for several years at Central Hall Westminster's conference centre and more recently, Gibson Hall. We know the fantastic support we have received from them will continue to help our students gain experience and help develop their workplace skills to set them up for a great career in the industry."

Notable alumni from Westminster Kingsway College include Jamie Oliver and Antony Worrall Thompson.

Kudos runs venues and retail outlets across the UK and is part of Crown Partnership.
