Inspire Competitions at Aylesbury College

Aylesbury College students have been competing against students from other local colleges in ‘Inspire Young People’ events.

The college hosted teams from Reading College, East Berkshire College, Oxford College, Reading College and Plymouth College for the finals of the competitions in hairdressing and catering.

For the hairdressing awards, the special guest and judge for the evening was award-winning hairdresser to the stars, Errol Douglas MBE, whose work is regularly featured in magazines such as Vogue, Harpers & Queen, and Tatler.  Aylesbury College Barbering apprentice Arichman Perez was the overall winner of the evening. 

The catering competition involved students teaming up to create a restaurant concept, considering everything from cuisine, location, interior décor, staffing and a menu. Students were then tasked with presenting their concepts to the Dragon’s Den style panel. The judges for this event included Ashley Palmer-Watts - Executive Head Chef at Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck Group. The winning team was Reading College.
