The Chefs’ Forum has Been Awarded a Silver Industry Excellence Partnership Award by The Manchester College

The awards recognise and accredit employer partners for their commitment to the work-readiness of young people studying at The Manchester College.

Speaking about the award Employment Engagement Leader Hilary Orr said:

“With The Chefs Forum being such a valued partner of the college and in recognition of your ongoing support I would like to award you with the Silver Award.”

Catherine Farinha, Founder of The Chefs’ Forum, said:

“We are delighted and truly honoured to have been awarded a Silver Industry Excellence Award by The Manchester College.  The Manchester College is one of five UK Colleges running The Chefs’ Forum Academy.  This sees top industry professionals and esteemed chefs teach the students at the college or virtually of late.

We can’t wait to send chefs into the college once more and are very much looking forward to staging a virtual open day for local feeder schools (albeit virtually) on the 11th May.”

The Chefs’ Forum wholly supports The Manchester College with curriculum enrichment and employer engagement and will continue to promote it as one of the country’s leading colleges for hospitality and catering.

Any chefs or front of house professionals from Manchester and surrounds, who would like to enquire about joining The Chefs’ Forum Academy and forging links with the college should contact
