Hailing from a wide range of local authorities across England, the successful candidates celebrated their achievements in a graduation ceremony at Kendal College in the Lake District.
The Local Authority Caterers’ Association (LACA) and the Savoy Educational Trust have funded the qualification for the past three years.
Director of professional development at the Institute of Hospitality John Cunningham said: “This successful training and development partnership between LACA, Kendal College and the Institute of Hospitality is having very positive results year after year. The Institute of Hospitality’s Diplomas are specially designed to be flexible and accessible to those with busy working lives. We are delighted to see more and more public sector catering managers benefiting from these courses.”
