During your vocational programme at Derwen College you will be working in the college’s commercial areas.

Derwen College has a commercial area which includes The Orangery Restaurant, Garden Cafe and Garden Centre.  We welcome many visitors and customers to these outlets throughout the year. The Orangery Restaurant, Karten Print Shop and Aggie’s Art House are open to visitors during term time. 

Working in these commercial areas will enable you to develop essential skills to find employment after leaving college.

In The Orangery Restaurant and Garden Cafe you will put your vocational learning into practice by taking orders and waiting on.  While in the Garden Centre shop you could be advising customers on the produce and plants, maintaining the displays and serving customers at the counter.

Derwen College will provide you with real work opportunities.  The choices are yours.
