|Elizabeth Durkin - Catering/Lifeskills Course Coordinator|
My background is firmly in catering, having trained in professional cookery when I finished school and subsequently been conferred with a degree in Culinary Arts. I have worked at home and abroad and have held Head Chef positions throughout my career. Keeping abreast of developments, trends and the requirements of the catering industry is important to me. Delivering a Catering and Lifeskills Programme at the EDI Centre which prepares trainees for the many available opportunities within that sector is now my primary focus.
|Amanda Etherton - Catering/Lifeskills Course Assistant Coordinator|
My career began in hotel management and since joining the EDI Centre in 2015 I hold the position of Assistant Coordinator on the Catering Programme. Along with several years in the hotel industry, in the past I worked in the car rental and courier businesses both in the U.K. and the Middle East which provided me with the skills to deal with all aspects of Customer Service. Having qualified in Adult Education I now thoroughly enjoy helping others who wish to pursue a career in hospitality.
