Our adult Catering & Hospitality courses offer training in a wide range of areas and encompass a variety of international cuisines. 

Course subjects you can study include:

  • Professional cookery for the trade

We have numerous courses aimed at learners wanting to brush up their skills for home cooking, in addition to a range of professional qualifications and courses aimed at mature students wishing to enter or progress in the catering industry. Many courses combine demonstrations with practical cooking sessions and students get to taste and discuss the dishes. Our dedicated, professional staff have expansive knowledge and wide-ranging personal experience of working in the catering industry.

Many of our courses can be studied at one of our Community Learning Centres. Professional catering training and a selection of our other courses are delivered at our main Deane Road Campus in Bolton town centre. This location is convenient for students travelling from Manchester and Lancashire.

Also at Deane Road, you can benefit from learning in our professional-standard production kitchens. Our training restaurant, Signature, is also at our Deane Road site, offering students inspiration and, for full-time students, the chance to gain valuable work experience.
