Geor-Dan, from Foxes Academy in Somerset, wants to work in a hotel kitchen after her positive work experience.
“It was really good and I really enjoyed it. All the kitchen staff were really nice and good fun and made me laugh.
“I tried hard to do all the jobs well after the staff had shown me what to do. Some of the jobs were like I do in the kitchen at Foxes but had to make food for a lot more people and there was a lot more kitchens and they were really big, so it took me a little while to find my way around. We had to make hundreds of wraps I had never seen so many.
“Paul the Head Chef was nice and made sure all the staff shown me how to do jobs so I knew what to do.
“I can’t wait to go back to work there again because I really enjoyed it and hope I will work well enough to get a job in the kitchen there. That would be really good. It’s a good place to work.”
The staff at Birmingham Metropole Hilton said Geor-Dan has settled in well with the team.
“She was quiet on day 1 but since then her confidence has grown and she has become more chatty and interactive with everyone.
“Once she has understood what is required of a particular task she has picked this up well and been able to continue on her own. She has taken on board everything that has been shown to her and has had no difficulty in being part of the team to complete tasks.
“When asked she has told us that she is really enjoying herself, and we do not think any other support would be necessary or required for her.”
