Liam took up a Level 2 Professional Cookery Apprenticeship after leaving school. He planned and cooked menus for Runshaw College and is now on a Level 3 Professional Cookery Apprenticeship.
With little experience of professional kitchens, his commitment and determination he has led him to become a talented young chef.
Liam, who works at the Fusion Room restaurant in Preston, said: “I’m so proud to have won this award. Everyone at Runshaw and work has been very supportive and, even though I work long hours, I’m really enjoying it and have learnt loads.”
Runshaw College business centre manager Adrian Roscoe, said: “This event celebrates the achievements of our apprentices that studied with us in 2013/14. We are very proud of all of them and have high hopes for their future development.
“We’re committed to improving levels of youth unemployment and creating opportunities for young people and events like these are a great way to showcase achievement and remind our learners that we are only a success because they are.”
