Catering and hospitality skills are transferable worldwide. Students who complete the Level 1 course at Weymouth College have gained employment in the catering and hospitality field. Others have moved onto employment or are apprentices. Some are working for companies across the UK.

This is for you if you have a passion for food, enjoy being creative, are dedicated, can cope under pressure and stress and enjoy working as part of a team in a fast-moving environment. If you’re thinking about working in service industries, perhaps in hotels or restaurants, our Hospitality and Catering courses offer strong employment opportunities at local, national and international levels.

Why study with us?


We offer a range of courses for school leavers, apprentices and adults, in which you will work in our fully-functioning professional kitchen, restaurant and bar The Avenue, gaining the skills and the high standards needed for a career in the catering and hospitality industry.

A strong and work ready student experience is at the very heart of what we do here at The Avenue. Having the opportunity to work alongside Dorset employers, take part in local restaurant takeovers and work with guest chefs ensures our students balance the academic study necessary to understand skills with a varied and highly practical skills-led experience.

Our students learn the importance of team-working and communicating in the kitchen and restaurant setting but we also encourage development of individual skills and passions and our students regularly compete in regional and national competitions with great success!
