Catering Courses

Our courses

The Swale Skills Centre offers a range of catering, hospitality and nutrition courses in Kent, all delivered to students in our new, purpose-built premises in St Michael’s Road, Sittingbourne.

Our state-of-the-art, fully equipped kitchen boasts industrial standard stainless steel appliances and is connected to a fully operational commercial café. This high quality working environment gives our students hands-on, practical experience whilst they undertake their catering courses.

Students on our catering and hospitality courses also benefit from small class sizes of around 10 – 12 people on average, ensuring that our experienced tutors can provide individual support to each and every student.

All of our Kent catering courses are carefully developed to help students progress into further education or directly into employment, based on a sound understanding of the workings of a busy commercial kitchen environment.

What’s more, we’re delighted to be a part of the Gregg Wallace Food Academy, with the Masterchef presenter’s full support in training the chefs of the future.

“What I want to see is the youngsters embracing the industry, getting the most from it and for me to be eating in their restaurants in the years to come.”
