Bury College University Centre has announced a major redevelopment project that will provide catering students with access to cutting-edge facilities and offer university students a contemporary dining experience.
The new facility will complement the training kitchen capacity already available at Bury College to offer aspiring chefs, restaurant managers and baristas the opportunity to work in a new hospitality training environment.
This new student-led facility – which is co-funded by Savoy Educational Trust and the College – will allow learners to develop their range of food preparation skills and provide a chance to experience a new live working environment.
The contemporary new facility will be situated in the College’s University Centre, which houses a wide range of higher education and adult programmes.
The space will be re-modelled and will offer a modern facility for university students to benefit from.
Jacqui Taylor, curriculum director creative and service industries, business and professional, said: “The Bury College Catering department has seen exceptional growth over recent years with the introduction of several new courses including the Higher National Certificate in Hospitality Management and Apprenticeship Standard in Level 2 Production Chef.
“This new facility responds to our growing area and we are delighted that this new space will benefit our university and adult learners and provide them with a unique experience.”
