Erasmus placement saw group of students work hard in Spanish food businesses
Catering students from Grantham got a taste for Spanish cuisine after completing a series of work placements over two weeks in Valencia.
The group, which consisted of a mix of Level 2 and 3 students, were accompanied on the Erasmus journey to the Spanish city by tutors Hazel Gunby, Tracey West and Richard White.
The placement involved working in a variety of settings, from bakeries, patisseries and restaurants.
Students were given the chance to contrast and compare the diet of Spanish people with more familiar British meals.
Level 2 Catering student Emily Skerritt admitted she had never been abroad before the trip, but is delighted she took part and wanted to encourage others to do the same.
She said: “I really enjoyed the full experience. You would regret not going if you had the chance.”
Emidio Curado, who is on the Level 3 course, added: “This is my last year at college, and I’m gutted I can’t go again.”

Access to HE student to advance to Nottingham Trent to study History
After delaying university for several years, Lynn Marriott returned to education to realise her dream of studying History.
Lynn, who is on the Access to Higher Education (Humanities) course at Grantham College, is set to begin her new chapter at Nottingham Trent University in September.
After being told her A-Levels would not be accepted for entry to university, Lynn got in contact with Grantham College.
She has since thrived on her Access course, which has allowed her to study a range of subjects in preparation for university.
“I never lost my interest in history, but there was always that desire to move on,” Lynn said.
Lynn also spoke highly about the tutors who have helped her throughout the university application process.
“The tutors have been fantastic, they know their subjects inside out,” she said.
“Their help on the personal statement was absolutely brilliant.”
