Our two main centres in Ayr and Kilmarnock have fantastic, modern, well-equipped resources including our training restaurants.

We work closely with a wide range of local employers, schools, and other partners, and are always keen to expand and develop new partnerships.

We have a strong focus on vocational skills and knowledge led by a team of highly professional and well-experienced lecturers and support staff.
