The BTEC National Extended Diploma students in Hospitality really put on a show for their final assessment on planning and staging an event.  A fantastical and creative display of decorations and props transformed The Escoffier into a magical dream world. Madhatter’s hats adorned the table centre pieces and an array of toadstools, flowers and lights created a sparkling atmosphere.

The set was designed and created by Kelly Bailey, chef patisserie for the evening alongside event co-ordinator Chloe Coxhill (Alice for the evening).

A seminar to promote the role of women in STEM held at The Bournemouth and Poole College was an outstanding success. More than 80 delegates packed into the main STEM lecture theatre to confront the issue of why women are under-represented in the sciences.

The vast majority of attendees to the event were women and their determination to breakdown gender stereotypes was clear. The idea that women are less dedicated to the cause of science or cannot contribute to engineering and sciences is not sustainable.
