Student Cooks Up A First

ANNETTE Bradley has created catering history at the Stranraer Campus of Dumfries and Galloway College.

She is the first person to achieve the Adult Modern Apprenticeship programme in Advanced Craft, Food Preparation and Cooking.

Annette’s studies have taken her through SVQ level three Food Preparation and Cooking, REHIS elementary Food Hygiene, Numeracy, communications and information technology units, plus customer care training over three years.

She did much of the work in her own time, with some of it on a day release basis from her employment at Dalrymple Hospital.

Annette was presented with her certificates and completion bonus cheque by Billy Bentley of Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway, sponsors of the Modern Apprenticeship programme.

He said: “There is a misconception that the Modern Apprenticeship programme is only open to school leavers. However this is an ideal way to improve and update your skills and Annette is a good example”.

John Govan, Programme manager at Dumfries and Galloway College said: “We are very proud of Annette’s achievement. She has worked hard for three years to complete the programme. It took a lot of determination and will to succeed, having to manage her studies around her work and her family commitments”.
