Studying at NTCA has been the best decision of my life. I love working in the restaurant, and NTCA’s Hospitality course is perfect for me. It has given me so many opportunities I wouldn’t have had anywhere else. I couldn’t have asked for anything better to set up my career in hospitality and catering. I can’t wait to continue learning and progress my career at the same time.
The hospitality course in NTCA has given me the confidence to progress my cooking skills, and to learn more about techniques, food, presentation and best practices in a kitchen environment. The trainers have been extremely supportive throughout, they are very knowledgeable and patient.
