Hi I want to get into a career in catering. Can anyone give me any advice on what to do? Catering schools, work experience, Jobs etc. I am currently living in wiltshire but am thinking of moving to london to pursue my career.

Hi Tommy

Before you move to london, I would send letters out to all the top hotels and restaurants. Most hotels will also put you through nvq so you kill two birds with one stone.

Good luck

Hi, I'm in a similar situation to Tommy but was thinking of maybe doing a full-time cookery course at a college. What's the best thing to do? Would it be better to find a job and do a part-time course at the same time? How/where can I find what courses are on offer in my area (Cornwall)?

:'( nobody replied! Think I might have answered my own question though - http://careersadvice.direct.gov.uk/ has loads of info on vocational courses and I found a pretty good list of colleges offering catering courses at http://www.chef-jobs.co.uk so I'm getting an idea of what I can do :)

Definately go for the day release option if you can get it. Pick somewhere you would like to work, London, or holiday destination and write to employers. Mkae sure you get a friend to proof read your etters too ;o)
