Le Cordon Bleu - hospitality training

Le Cordon Bleu are the world's leading provider of hospitality training. They run an extraordinary scholarship scheme aimed at people with limited means who wouldn't normally have the chance to study their most prestigious course, Le Grand DiplĂ´me, in London. The prize is worth over £30k and comes with accommodation in central London and the chance to study with a leading chef.

They aren't looking for people with previous experience, just people with a passion for cooking or the hospitality industry. It's open to 17-20 year olds so they are targeting schools and colleges.

Ravensbourne College

On the 20th-21st November, we're holding Penrose Festival - a celebration of creative student-led businesses in design, production, technology, and digital skills. 400 students will be exhibiting their work and selling their products, to demonstrate their entrepreneurial skill and creative talent. Running alongside this on Wednesday 21st, we are holding a number of free short courses, aimed exclusively at pre-UCAS students who may want to learn how to improve their showreel, or how to perfect their performance in an interview. There are a number of places still available, and we'd love to have as many people as possible attend. It would be a great opportunity for them to see the college, chat to our students, get better prepared for university admission and learn a new set of skills.
