Checking in for the ultimate work experience opportunity, 30 students from Langley College, part of the Windsor Forest Colleges Group, spent a week running Holiday Inn Slough-Windsor in Church Street, as part of InterContinental Hotel Group’s (IHG’s) National Hotel Takeover in partnership with People 1st. A programme designed to encourage more young people to work in the hospitality industry.

The students ran a range of aspects across the hotel – from checking in guests at reception, to serving food and beverages, even running the housekeeping and room service.

They were all shadowed by hotel team members and had the opportunity to gain practical experience of running a busy, fully functioning hotel, to complement their studies and training at college.

The initiative was part of IHG® Academy. Through IHG Academy, IHG hotels (with brands including Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express) collaborate with educational providers and community groups to help local people build their hospitality skills and improve their employability. Since 2013, more than 47,000 people have benefitted from the IHG Academy across 2,133 programmes in 79 countries.

The students, who are all studying hospitality and catering or travel and tourism courses at Langley College, covered all roles, starting at the top with a student General Manager. They had to apply for the positions, as they would in real life, with applicants for the student General Manager and student Operations Manager roles even being interviewed by a panel of senior hotel staff. In turn, the student General Manager and student Operations Manager went on to recruit their own student Heads of Departments and remaining team positions.

Chrislyn Paul (21, from Langley), who is studying a foundation degree in tourism and hospitality management at Langley College, was appointed as Student General Manager for the week. She explains: "It has been amazing to be appointed as Student General Manager. I've learnt so much about running a hotel, I've learnt how to manage a team, think on your feet to solve problems, devise rotas, had to put together a presentation on metrics and been responsible for giving the staff briefing each morning. I think this experience has better prepared me for working in the industry. It has definitely changed me as a person. I've got so much more confidence and feel that I can achieve anything now if I push myself."

Langley College student Scott Biddle (19, from Burnhan) said: 'I've really enjoyed the experience and was thrilled to be chosen to be Student Operations Manager. I've even been coming in early for my shifts to make the most of my time here. The hotel staff and guests have been so friendly and supportive. It has been a really valuable insight into how a hotel is run, from management and finances to housekeeping. I think companies in other industries should do a takeover week to give other students this kind of opportunity."

During the week, the students looked after up to 800 breakfast covers and 700 restaurant covers in the evening. Carla Oliveira (18, from Windsor), who was student reception manager for the week, impressed the hotel so much she was offered a part-time job at the hotel, which she will combine with continuing her studies at the College.

Holiday Inn Slough - Windsor is among over 30 IHG hotels across the U.K. to participate in the hotel takeover, aimed at encouraging more people to choose careers in hospitality.

Richard Jackson, General Manager of Holiday Inn Slough-Windsor said: “We’re really delighted to be participating in the hotel takeover for the first time and having developed strong work experience links with Langley College, they were my obvious choice as partners. This is the 18th year this initiative has been running and it’s proven to be a hugely successful recruitment tool. Some of our best team members, even a former General Manager, participated in the takeover as students.”

Kate Gibson, Vice President - Corporate Responsibility, at IHG explains: “The National Hotel Takeover at 30 of our hotels in the UK this week has shown just how important it is for young people to get real life, on-the-job experience working in hospitality. We’ve seen students take on roles from General Manager to Head Chef with many of them displaying a natural talent for a future career in this field. The students that I visited at Holiday Inn Slough – Windsor have done such an incredible job and have really shown us what a bright future they have in hospitality.

“It's really important that we challenge some of the misconceptions young people have about a career in hospitality, and show them first-hand what it can be like. Our own global CEO Keith Barr started out in a restaurant kitchen so that goes to show how much potential there is for growth within the industry, and I hope more young people consider it as a future career path.”

Local resident, Steven Gillingwater, was one diner enjoying the authentic Irish cuisine. He said: “The bubble and squeak was lovely. It took me back to Ireland. My Nan was Irish and it was just as good as she used to make. I’m definitely interested in coming along to the Spanish night.”

Talented hospitality and catering students from Langley College, part of East Berkshire College, played host to Langley Haven Care Home yesterday (29th November 2016) when they organised a special two-course lunch and festive workshops for ten of its elderly residents.

The residents, who were all over 85 years old, visited the College’s Zest restaurant in Station Road to take part in two interactive masterclasses, which saw the students demonstrate how to decorate cakes and festive biscuits along with some fancy napkin folding perfect for any Christmas dinner table. The residents even had the chance to have a go at the activities themselves, with a little help from the students.

With the ladies and gentlemen from Langley Haven having worked up an appetite, the event culminated with a special two-course lunch, which was cooked and served by the students. The menu included such delights as Chicken Chasseur and Double Chocolate Cheesecake.

Roxana Chirita, Activities Coordinator at Langley Haven, explained: “The residents really enjoyed the event because the students were teaching them. It was lovely to see them interacting and learning from each other. Some of our residents can be quite quiet, but the students brought them out of themselves.

“The whole event was very well organised. The students and staff took great care to plan everything to meet the needs of our residents. We are hoping to plan another visit early next year and visit the College salon as well.”

Commenting at the day, Langley Haven resident Mary Smith said: “I really enjoyed my visit to the College as I don’t get to go out much now. The students showed us how to decorate cakes or biscuits and how to fold napkins. It was nice to talk to them about their lives and cooking.”

Marion Foster added: “I can remember when the College was built. It is fantastic that these facilities are open to the community. The quality of the restaurant is excellent.”

Exploring the future at Langley College

Movie magic, Italian cuisine and futuristic technology combined to create a show-stopping Open Day at Langley College on Tuesday (8 November). Over 490 prospective students and their families visited the campus in Station Road to check out the state-of-the-art facilities and find out about over 800 courses.

From engineering to childcare, there was an array of displays and have-a-go activities running throughout the event to entertain and inform visitors. Highlights of the evening included the chance to experience the latest virtual reality technology in the College’s Innovation Centre and hairdressing students showcasing their skills by creating some fun hairstyles inspired by the movie Trolls.

In the motor vehicle and engineering department, students demonstrated the latest 3D printers and CNC milling machines, while talented catering students served up a delicious selection of Italian dishes and cakes to hungry guests. Visitors were even invited to have a go at making their own pizzas in the modern training kitchens.

Prospective students Hannah Germain and Ellie Firth, from Windsor, attended the event for advice on hair and beauty courses: “We heard about the Open Day at school, so we decided to come along to find out more. The salons look really professional and everyone was really helpful. We even had the chance to have a go at some hairdressing activities ourselves.”

Mary Langstone (17, from Maidenhead), who is studying a level three hairdressing course at the College, was on hand to provide advice from a student’s perspective: “At college you get treated more like an adult, you have the freedom to be more creative and, on my course, you have the chance to work on real customers. Coming to college has really inspired me to work hard, so I can open my own salon one day.”

Langley College, part of East Berkshire College, continues to go from strength to strength in terms of raising standards and last year completed a £30m refurbishment to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for current and future students. These improvements included new hair and beauty salons, a sports centre and a Hospitality & Catering Academy.

A flavour of college life in Langley

IMG 9963

With an array of activities from engineering to hairdressing, the Summer Open Day at Langley College had something for everyone last week. Over 270 prospective students and their families visited the campus to check out the state-of-the-art learning facilities and find out about over 800 courses, which range from beginner right through to degree level.

From sports to childcare, there was a wide variety of demonstrations running throughout the event to entertain and inform visitors. Highlights of the day included the chance to explore the latest virtual reality technology in the College’s Innovation Centre and the opportunity to enjoy the flavours of Asia with a special buffet lunch created by talented catering students. Meanwhile, beauty therapy students showcased their skills by providing manicures and face-painting for visitors in the modern training salons.

Prospective student Melissa Dawson (aged 17) attended the Open Day to check out the College and speak to lecturers: “I was very impressed with the facilities here, they are very high-tech. I had a go at the virtual reality demonstration, which is amazing. It is like being in a different dimension.”

Salon customer Clare Worley, added: “The College is really modern and the salons here are brilliant. It is great that students get to train in a real salon with real customers. It is great for local residents too!”

As well as an array of interactive demonstrations, current and former students along with staff were available to answer questions. For example, visual merchandising student Macauley Crellin (aged 19) was on hand to talk to people about the benefits of studying a Higher Education qualification at college.

Macauley explains: “I completed my Level 3 course at Windsor College, but was unable to go to university straight away as I needed to look after my younger brother. Studying the HNC course part-time at college meant I could still continue my studies to a higher level rather than miss out. It is a very flexible course, so I was able to fit study around my work and family commitments.

“I’ve really enjoyed the course and the opportunities it has given me. I’m now looking forward to moving on to complete my BA Honours Degree in Fashion at Bournemouth University.”

In the College’s impressive Motor Vehicle & Engineering Department, visitors were able to tour the workshops and observe engineering students at work on the College’s new £70,000 CNC milling machine as well as a car restoration project.

East Berkshire College continues to go from strength to strength in terms of raising standards and has recently completed a £30m refurbishment of its Langley College to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for current and future students. These improvements include new commercial hair and beauty salons as well as a simulated hospital environment.
