At Riverside College we have created Centres of Excellence in:
- Catering & Hospitality
- Hairdressing & Beauty
These Centres of Excellence have been built around significant investment in employing some of the best specialist teaching staff in the country, investing in state of the art facilities and by generating significant opportunities for students.
The Centres of Excellence work with high profile partners to offer students opportunities to develop both their academic and personal expertise in their chosen subject(s) to a level that will support applications to the country’s most prestigious universities.
Extensive professional support in each area, such as 4.5 hours of individual sports coaching for athletes and one to one music tuition, also ensures that students are able to develop their talents to a level where they can compete with their peers at a national level.
Centre of Excellence in Catering and Hospitality
At the Centre of Excellence in Catering and Hospitality students benefit from training with Michelin Star Chefs, extensive opportunities for work experience and our brand new state of the art kitchens and restaurant.
Centre of Excellence for Hair, Beauty, Nails and Media Makeup
At the Centre of Excellence for Hair, Beauty, Nails and Media Makeup we have recently refurbished contemporary facilities, including hairdressing salons, beauty treatment rooms, a nail bar and state of the art media makeup studios. This fantastic setting provides students with the opportunity to run their own salons and showcase their skills to the public.
