Visitor Economy Week meets National Apprenticeship Week!

The College is hosting a number of events to highlight apprenticeships in the tourism industry, which are vital to the economy of Liverpool City Region.

This week is both Visitor Economy and National Apprenticeship Week (3-7 February), which are important events in the College’s recruitment calendar.

Each year, the College is involved in a showcase of workshops and events to highlight the range of skills gained by trainees and apprentices at the College.  It also celebrates the impact apprenticeships can have on individuals, employers and the economy.

One event hosted at the College this week saw world-renowned game chef and Senior Lecturer in Culinary Arts at Westminster Kingsway College, Jose Suto, deliver a seminar on his acclaimed Game Larder. His masterclass was followed with preparation for a Game inspired guest dinner, where he was supported by apprentices from The City of Liverpool College’s Royal Academy of Culinary Arts (RACA).

Jose (pictured above) said: “I was keen to get involved with this event because Game is something that’s becoming more and more evident in cookery.

“It’s good for the future chefs of tomorrow to learn more about where Game comes from. These sessions allow us to impart on students the values of provenance, respect for products, and an understanding of how special a product can be.

“Nowadays, cooking and being a chef is all about understanding your food, the ethical side of the food, and also understanding about sustainability. We’re hitting every mark here in a demonstration such as this.”

Liverpool has a thriving visitor economy and remains the fifth most visited destination in the UK for overseas visitors.  Latest figures show that Liverpool City Region’s Visitor Economy is worth more that £4.5bn.
