The Hospitality Department in Perth College UHI collected the Innovation Award at the 2016 Scottish Qualifications Authority Star Awards. In a first for education in Scotland, the department worked with college caterers to provide practical work experience for students. The partnership, which has been showcased to other colleges, has resulted in a dramatic increase in course completion rates.
