Head Chef Invites Student to Work in France!

Posted: 16th April 2018

Jai Brook was invited back to France to work through the Summer by the Head Chef of a Michelin recommended restaurant he was working in on a college trip.

Hospitality Catering students at Doncaster College travelled to Troyes in France for 2 weeks to carry out work placements in some of the finest Restaurants in the town. Jai, who studies Level 4 Professional Cookery, was placed in a Michelin recommended restaurant called La Mignardise. When he was asked to prepare a speciality dish for the Head Chef, staff and English guests, Jai didn’t disappoint in producing a classic Sunday Roast Dinner. The Head Chef was so impressed, he invited Jai to come back and work in the Summer.

The trip to Troyes comes not long after Sport and Public Services students travelled to Perpignan in France to carry out their own work experience, whilst Animal Care, Construction and Childcare fly out to Sweden for theirs on 14th April.

Doncaster College is committed to providing students with opportunities to gain global employability skills and increased awareness of the value of international experiences.  Our students have returned with new skills, confidence and help towards their qualification, and the programme is funded by Erasmus+ so everyone has access to this fantastic opportunity. Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport for 2014-2020 which provides funding for people to study, train, gain work experience or volunteer abroad.
