Spotlight on .......Rebecca McAlees

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 –   Rebecca McAlees

Department –   Catering

When did you start? –   September 2018

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

Belfast Central Training were at a Careers event in my school.  I was chatting to one of the staff who told me about a course that was exactly what I was looking for so I filled in an application form that day.


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

Nope, but this did not put me off.


What did you think of Bootcamp?

Bootcamp was good, it was on for 2 weeks and we got to know what would be happening and go 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 French Village.  I really like it and I like getting along with everyone who works there too.


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

I come into BCT twice a week, Monday I go to my catering class and on a Thursday I go to my Maths, English, ICT, Employability and Personal Development classes. I enjoy them all.


How do you feel your first 3 months have gone?

It has been good so far!


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

I would tell everyone that it is fun.


Thank you Rebecca!!
