The students were awarded certificates and medals and by industry judges including David Ward, Executive Chef with Sodexo Scotland. 

Ian Gibb, Hospitality Sector Manager said: “This competition allowed our students to demonstrate the hard work and perseverance they are putting into learning the skills needed for their future career.

“Perth College UHI has a unique, sector-leading partnership with Sodexo, as our students work alongside Sodexo staff in the College’s Food Court, allowing them to get hands-on skills and real experience of what it’s like to work in a busy kitchen and restaurant environment. This means our students are ready to be a valuable addition to the workforce of any employers in the industry.”
