Carly, who initially took levels 2 and 3 in professional cookery with the College, progressed to the foundation degree in hospitality management so she could learn all aspects of the catering industry.Carly, who is currently employed as a commis chef at Breadsall Priory, is planning to go into business with a friend from College. To realise her aims she has been studying full-time at College while juggling work shifts, working virtually seven-day weeks at times.
She said: "It's my ambition to open my own fine dining restaurant but to do that I need to know everything that's involved, not just the cheffing side.
"I can't expect to be able to tell other people what to do if I've never done their job myself."
