East Riding College Students Use Latest In Sports Technology

Students at East Riding College have been using the latest technology to brush up on their golf swings as part of their sports studies. The learners, studying towards a BTEC Level Three Extended Diploma in Sport, used an iPad app to study their technique with Daniel Connell, the club pro at Bridlington Links Golf Club. They then went on to have a nine-hole pairs competition, which was organised by Bethan Atkinson as part of a unit on organising sports events. Tutor Alex Bell said: “Technology is becoming increasingly important in modern sport and this was an excellent opportunity for students to see how it can enhance their golf technique. “It’s an essential part of our job to ensure that students are working with the kind of equipment that is used by professional trainers, conditioning experts and others in the sport and leisure industry. “Not only that, the tournament was a great way to have a bit of competitive fun.” The tournament was the culmination of a four-week unit looking at individual sports, which was initially made up of sessions on indoor sports such as badminton, table tennis, snooker and squash. Strong ties with Bridlington Links Golf Club enabled the College […]

Star Chef Michael Quin Warns Of Alcohol Dangers

March 12, 2013
By

Catering and hospitality students at East Riding College have met the former head chef of the Ritz Hotel in London, Michael Quinn MBE. Mr Quinn visited the College’s Bridlington campus to give a talk about alcoholism and drug abuse in the industry, having been addicted to alcohol himself in the past. Having been head-hunted by the Ritz and turning it into one of London’s top eateries, he descended into alcoholism before losing his home, job and family. Now, he heads the Ark Foundation, a charity which promotes alcohol awareness to catering students nationwide. Connor Calvert, 17, a level two catering student, said: “Michael Quinn was funny because of the way he was explaining things, but he did make us realise the seriousness of the message he was getting across. It really made me think about alcohol and what it can do to you.” Emma Parker, 16, a level one catering student, said: “I thought Michael Quinn’s talk was great and very interesting to listen to, he made me realise how dangerous alcohol can be.” Tutor David Leaf, himself a former executive chef at the Willerby Manor Hotel and first head chef at Tickon Grange, said: “Michael’s story is one that […]
