Tamara described Sunderland College as fun, interesting and educational. During her time at the college she studied a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Catering. She moved into full time employment as a junior chef after leaving Sunderland College.
“I chose Sunderland College because it was close to home.
My favourite part of the course was the practical element, it really helped me to gain the skills I needed to gain a career in the catering industry.
I also enjoyed being able to eat what I had made!”
Tamara is now a full-time commis chef at Raithwaite Hall Whitby
