Mark Parsons, assistant principal at the college, said: “This is an absolutely fantastic achievement for all of the team and learners who work at the Academy.

“To have won AA College Restaurant of the Year for the second time is a privilege, which is both humbling and inspiring.

“I hope that our reputation within the Cheshire community continues to grow and attract talented chefs who can train at the best College restaurant in the country.”

The AA College Rosette Scheme was designed to recognise the efforts of learners, both front and back of house, who are the future of the hospitality industry.

Andy Doyle, Membership Operations Manager at Peoples 1st International, said: “Throughout the competition the team from Academy impressed with their passion, confidence and forward-thinking approach.

“This was exemplified by the presentation from their learners to the panel of judges where they highlighted the commercial attitude of the College with outside events, connections with Nantwich Town and other local businesses.

“These ensure they are experiencing the diversity that the hospitality sector has to offer, enabling them to decide on their chosen career path and gain the experience and knowledge to make themselves appealing future employees.

“Congratulations to all involved.”
