Since starting the apprenticeship Sophie has become more confident in the workplace and has even made new recipes such as the ‘Chocolate Orange Brownie’ which is always a sell out in the tea room. Sophie attends Wigan & Leigh College once a week and completes the rest of her learning in the work place. Once she has completed the course Sophie wants to continue gaining knowledge and progressing her skills in the catering industry and her ambition is to own a Tea Room.
Sophie said “My workplace is so supportive and they really helped me gain confidence to do more things and try new recipes. I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship scheme with Wigan & Leigh College”
