Compliments to the award-winning chef

Apprentice Jordan Green scooped the Young Chef of the Year title in the Derby Food and Drink Awards – an accolade which he hopes will fast track his career ambitions.

Jordan was among a group of full-time Catering and Hospitality learners who progressed to an apprenticeship with the College’s Engine Shed restaurant and training kitchens at the Roundhouse campus.

His apprenticeship opened doors to many opportunities – including a work placement with Derby’s award-winning Restaurant Zest. He also took part in a European work experience programme in Denmark, spending five weeks at the Danish Meat Trade College in Roskilde alongside learners from Estonia, Italy and Finland.

I really want to be working in fine dining and to learn from the best in the industry. Hopefully winning this award will help me at the start of my career.
