THE CATERING industry is booming in Rugby.

Rugby College has expanded its Professional Cookery course due to a recent rise in demand – evidence that the sector is enjoying an extended period of growth, says the Head of Department.

Sam Starvis said: “In recent years attitudes to professional cooking have changed significantly.

“While cooking and waitering has always been viewed as a skilled profession on the continent, this has not always been the case in the UK.




“But as the catering sector continues to grow and diversify across the country, we are definitely starting to see a change in how the industry is perceived. It’s certainly becoming a more desirable profession.”

He said the college’s Diploma courses prepare students for jobs in the restaurant and catering industry.


“I expect all of the students to pick up jobs over the Christmas period,” he said. “It is a great way to apply the skills they have acquired at the college to a real-life catering environment.”
