Lorraine Small from Helen’s Bay has taken a career U Turn to study Professional Cookery at Belfast Met. The former dentist has decided to follow her dream of opening her own bespoke Bed and Breakfast and has enrolled on the course to help her achieve this.

Lorraine, a mature student, was on-hand to help the college launch its recruitment season. She said: “I have always been passionate about cooking. After working as a dentist for years and raising my children I decided to bite the bullet and follow my dream. As well as cookery, the course teaches me about practical issues such as health and safety – everything I would need for running a successful B&B. I have gained valuable experience working at various events and in the college restaurant. The tutors, who have all worked in the industry are fantastic and have given me great insight. On top of that it’s a really great class and I have made some lovely friends. The course has brought me one step closer to my dream and I would recommend that anyone of any age gives the course a shot".

Anyone who is interested in finding out more about any course at Belfast Met can come along the Part Time Open Day on January 10 at Millfield Campus or the Information Day on January 28th and Full Time Open Day on February 2 at Titanic Quarter Campus.
