Starting on January 29, 2018, the six-week training course offers students the chance to gain the required skills for a career in the hospitality industry.

Along with an industry certified qualification on completion of the course, students also get the chance to gain on-the-job experience through a two-week work placement with some of Forth Valley’s leading businesses.

John Thomson (25) from Falkirk, graduated from the course in August.
