On leaving Park School I started Connect to Careers at Ayrshire College’s Kilmarnock Campus. I really enjoy the course which covers subjects such as cooking, engineering, maths, IT and employability.

I have always been interested in cooking and would like to become a chef.

As part of the course I went on a work placement to the College’s Gallery Restaurant. My duties included fridge/freezer control, checking stock and assisting in the kitchen. This was a great experience for me and really gave me an idea of how a kitchen and restaurant are run.

Coming to college is has improved my confidence. I've gained many new skills and I'm looking forward to coming back next year to study NC Hospitality Level 4.
