College prepares a pancake fit for a Prince

City of Glasgow College staff and students flipped pancakes with His Royal Highness The Duke of Rothesay when The Prince officially opened the Prince’s Trust Wolfson Centre in Glasgow.

The Centre is Scotland’s biggest youth employment and enterprise hub. Willie McCurrach, Curriculum Head for Food at City of Glasgow College, was invited to attend the event:

“I was asked by Prince’s Trust to produce pancakes for Prince Charles on the only 3D printer of its type in the UK. We made a variety of different shapes including the Prince’s Trust 40th Celebration Crest. The students who helped are all graduates from cookery programmes which we run at the college in partnership with the Prince’s Trust.

“We bring the students here on five week projects which include work experience placements that often result in them gaining full time employment. We have one former student working as a chef at the Grand Central Hotel, and another at the Two Fat Ladies restaurant.”

The Wolfson Centre supports young people aged 16 to 24. Their courses help them to get back into work, education or training, or support them in setting up their own business. The hub offers access to the latest digital technology, highest-quality equipment and use of different creative and flexible working spaces.
