Kate Perrior – Cupcake Village
Katie Perrior has always been interested in Hospitality and Catering and the satisfaction that is gained when a customer's eyes light up at the sight and taste of the dishes produced.
It was this interest that led her to start her journey to success at the County Hotel in Walsall when she was 17 years old. Whilst in this role Katie decided she wanted to start earning her stripes within the business and as such enquired about completing a qualification in Hospitality & Catering. After discussing her options with training provider, Performance Through People (PTP), she decided on an Apprenticeship in Food Production and Cooking.
To ensure each learner gets the most out of their learning experience PTP assign a Personal Training Adviser for each learner that has experience and knowledge within the relevant occupational area. Katie's training adviser has supported hundreds of individuals to successful careers in the Hospitality Industry and continued to do so with Katie.
After having completed her Apprenticeship and moving to work at The Boat in Lichfield, Katie decided she wanted to increase her knowledge and further improve her skills in a range of areas. With this in mind, she
again contacted PTP to support her in the completion of the Hospitality Supervision Advanced Apprenticeship. The result was never in question and on successful completion Katie never looked back. She went on to open her own business, cupcake village which initially traded online only at www.cupcakevillage.co.uk but due to
her 10 years experience in the industry and through her commitment the site became that popular she is now opening her own store in Chase Town, Cannock.
Katie feels the support provided by PTP and in particular her adviser was key to her success; "My training adviser was inspirational and supported me around the clock to ensure I was successful. He is a wonderful
representative of PTP and as such I have referred two of my colleagues to PTP as I believe in them and their provision of apprenticeships. When I hear anyone needing training the first thing I think about is PTP"
We would like to congratulate Katie on all her success and are proud to have been able to support her along the way. It seems she found the right ingredients for the recipe of success.
Trevor Standeven, General Manager, Lodge Tyre Co Ltd
"As our business has grown the infrastructure that supports it has had to expand at a similar rate. As with every forward thinking company staff training is an important part of our future growth, in 2002 we reviewed our training arrangements and in doing so contacted Performance Through People Training Ltd who listened to our requirements for team leader training, upon booking and sending staff on the initial course the feed back received was very encouraging, and we have since built up a strong professional relationship, I would have no hesitation in recommending PTP Ltd to any company that requires a professional team to handle their training needs".
Kim Nash, I'm your PA
"I never thought that any training would be available to my small business so I am extremely grateful for you bringing it to my attention. Once, I had looked at the information I had and contacted you to discuss, you made the process so easy and manageable. You came along to meet both myself and another colleague at our offices and went through all the details with us and recommended courses to us. So far, I have been on two of the five courses I am booked onto. I've attended the Introduction to Marketing and the Personal Planning courses. I thoroughly enjoyed the course content and also the course delivery. John Williams is the sort of trainer that I can relate to and I enjoyed the practical exercises too. The information that you gave me about the course has to date been accurate and the courses have been exactly what I was expecting but I found them more enjoyable than I thought they would be.
I am really looking forward to completing my training with PTP and wanted to thank you for making it all happen. It was exactly what I personally and my business needed to be able to move forward in bothareas".
