Spotlight on....... Nicky Orr

We chose some of our September starts to answer a few questions about their first few months at Belfast Central Training.  We hope this will help anyone else who is considering signing up to do a course with us in 2019!


Who –   Nicky Orr

Department –   Hospitality

When did you start? –   September 2018

How did you hear about BCT?  How did you sign up? –

I was searching on the internet for somewhere to go to do a qualification in Hospitality.  I saw Belfast Central Training website, phoned and made an appointment to call down and talk to the staff.


Did you already know students here or ones that were starting at the same time as you? –

No, I did not know anyone else at BCT but that didn't put me off and I got to know all of my class really quickly.


What did you think of Bootcamp?

I thought it was good.  It gave us a chance to get to know everyone.


Tell us about your placement, where is it, do you like it, what do you enjoy most about it?

My placement is in Ten Square Hotel, which is behind Belfast City Hall.  I like it here, working as a member of bar staff is what I wanted to do.


What do you do when you come into BCT each week, do you find it fun?

Yes, I think it is good.


How do you feel your first 3 months have gone?

My first 3 months at Belfast Central Training have been good.  It is good getting to go on placement and also come in to go to classes.


If you had to tell future students one thing about BCT what would it be?

I would tell all students and also future students to make the most of their time here.


Thank you Nicky!!
