With September upon us, there is still time to apply for a full-time, university-level or part-time course at Moulton College, regardless of whether you are a school leaver, looking to re-train, or develop skills in your current industry.
The college offers a huge array of courses across areas including animal welfare, construction, equine, food and drink, land-based and sport.
September sees the start of a new range of part-time courses, with a range of professional and vocational courses. Moulton College works alongside awarding bodies such as BASIS, The Chartered Institute of Building and the Royal Horticultural Society to provide recognised industry-standard qualifications on many part-time courses.
Moulton also offers short legislative and competency courses to boost skills and expertise, as well as bespoke courses for businesses delivered by industry experts and arranged to meet specific needs, either at the college or on the business’s premises.
Meanwhile, a new range of Food and Drink courses are set to begin, designed in response to a thriving industry across this area in Northamptonshire.
The investment includes the development of a brand-new, state-of-the-art Food and Drink Innovation Centre, which houses a food technology suite, sensory rooms and micro-brewery, and demonstrates how Moulton College is committed to developing students ready for employment within the industry.
In July, Moulton welcomed master chocolatier Barry Johnson to the college for a special hands-on demonstration event for prospective Food and Drink students starting in September.
Barry, who originally started his career as a pastry chef, became inspired by cocoa plantations in Papua New Guinea and the emerging chocolate scene in Eastern Australia to make a shift in his career. In October 2017, he was crowned as the UK Chocolate Master following an intense competition, and will shortly be competing at the World Chocolate Masters in Paris, representing the UK and Ireland against fellow chocolatiers from around the world.
He inspired the potential students by exploring the chocolate-making process from ‘bean to bar’, and offering an insight in to some of the career routes available, before the guests got stuck in to making and decorating chocolate lollipops of their own.
There are still places available on food and drink courses, as well as other part-time and full-time courses across the college.
