Students provide treatments and catering for Morson Health and Wellbeing Day
Students from Hair and Beauty, and Hospitality & Culinary Arts were invited to Morson’s Health and Wellbeing Day to offer their employees a range of treatments and healthy canapés.
The day was arranged by Morson HR and was aimed at raising awareness of employee’s physical, and emotional wellbeing. Out of the 50 exhibitors at the event, Salford City College students were chosen as the exclusive providers for beauty treatments and catering for the day.
Hair and Beauty students provided luxury Indian head massages, manicures & pedicures and eyebrow shaping whilst Hospitality and Culinary Arts students made and served eight different healthy option canapés.
The food was all prepared by the Level 1 Hospitality and Culinary Arts students at the Walkden Centre who were only in week four of their college experience. Wendy Western, Hospitality and Catering Technician said, “This was the first time the Level 1 students had served and interacted with ‘real customers’ in a professional manner to prepare and serve food. All the students had an amazing positive attitude and it showed as they interacted with all the vendors and staff at Morson. It has boosted their confidence 100% which will help make them develop into professional young adults.”
Reece Livesy, former pupil of St Ambrose Barlow RC High School, said “The event went so well, I hope we can do it again next year!”
The Hair and Beauty students were delighted to have been asked to provide the treatments for such a large and well known company. The students have regular contact with members of the public who book treatments at Salford City College’s professional hair and beauty salons, Aspirations.
