Link with college in Switzerland brings new opportunities for students

9th October 2019 – Tags: Hospitality

Students and staff from the Hotel School at City College Norwich have welcomed their counterparts from Berufsbildungsschule Winterthur.

The 12 Swiss students will be staying in Norwich for 4 weeks.  During the first fortnight they will be working on their English language skills; and during the second part of their stay they will be gaining work experience in some of the city’s leading restaurants.    

The visit to City College Norwich saw the Swiss students join Level 3 Professional Chefs in a friendly bake-off, in which English and Swiss students worked together to prepare Apple strudel and Bakewell tarts.  Our guests were then given a tour of Norwich by Travel and Tourism students.

A group of City College Norwich students visited Winterthur in May this year, and plans are being made for another visit to the city which is in northern Switzerland.

The exchange has been made possible thanks to support from the Ersasmus Plus project and Movetia.
