STUDENTS gained an insight into the world of work courtesy of executives from hospitality and catering corporation Aramark.

The company delivered its fifth annual Enterprise Day at Chichester College, which gives hospitality, travel and tourism students the opportunity to prepare for employment.

Executives held short sessions with groups of students covering subjects such as business leadership, branding and marketing, employability, managing costs in business and health and wellbeing.

Chefs from the company also worked with catering students in the college training kitchen to prepare lunch, serving up Korean and Mexican dishes.

Phil Quinn, Aramark Regional Executive Chef, said: “It is really reassuring to see all the new talent coming into the industry and it was a great couple of days for our guys to be working with the students with plenty of laughs.

“They should be really proud of what they’ve done and how they present themselves.”

Julia Williams, head of learning for service industries at Chichester College, said: “We want our students to be able to move on to employment in their field once they leave us.

“Having executives from Aramark come to work with our students through our Enterprise Day is an opportunity for them to learn from people who are at the top of their career.

“They learn about what it can mean to run a company, manage a restaurant as well as learn some vital tips to help them get ahead of the game for ensuring their CVs are at the top of the pile when they apply for jobs.

“We are so grateful for the support of Aramark who have been working with us for the past five years – running events like this one.

“It inspires our students and I know they all take a lot away from the experience.”

Aramark currently hold the college’s catering contract, managing many of the food and drink facilities.
