Westminster Kingsway College recently welcomed a group of 16 students from Hyejeon College in South Korea. The students, specially selected by Hyejeon College, took part in a 3 week bespoke training programme designed to improve their Culinary and Patisserie skills.

The programme offered students a unique experience to study in the heart of London, with the added benefit of studying in English.

Students participated in practical skills training with WestKing chef lecturers Miranda Godfrey and Ian Sutton in our renowned training kitchens, utilising the high quality, specialist teaching facilities and real working environment. Students were also given an exclusive opportunity to shadow chefs at some of London’s top restaurants; Jinjuu, owned by TV celebrity chef Judy Joo, and Galvin at Windows, Michelin star restaurant at the Hilton Park Lane.

The programme concluded with a certificate ceremony celebrating the achievements of the programme.Students were presented with fantastic opportunities to engage with industry through workplace shadowing and guided visits around London’s most iconic food markets. The group also visited luxury catering company, Baxter Storey, to meet with the Chef Manager who is also WestKing alumni.

Students also attended the college event ‘A Profession for all’; a celebration of the food industry featuring celebrity chef guest speakers including Ruth Hansom (Chef, Westminster Kingsway College alumnus, the first female winner of the Young National Chef of the Year title and star of BBC2’s MillionPoundMenu). The event offered a selection of culinary workshops and opportunity to network with chefs, award-winning lecturers, bloggers and restaurateurs. These enrichment activities provided a unique experience for students to learn about current trends and hot topics in the sector and witness first-hand the coordination and management of events.
