HND Media & Communication students were a vital part of City of Glasgow College’s presence at the recent ScotHot 17, Scotland’s biggest food, drink, hospitality and tourism trade show which took place at the SECC.
Four media students, Carly Cairns, Molly Hamilton, Morven Fik and Cailley Wiggins, were interning for The Staff Canteen, an industry-leading networking website for the cooking industry, as they delivered live cooking events that featured leading chefs from across the UK, including the college’s own Masterchef winner Gary MacLean.
While the college’s cookery students were also involved in the event, the media students were tasked with the management of The Staff Canteen’s social media feeds, capturing images and videos and updating the feeds in real-time throughout the two-day event. They also wrote articles for the Staff Canteen site, summing up the events of each day.
Staff Canteen Editor Cara Pilkington was delighted with their performance, saying, “They were all fantastic and a real pleasure to have around. They were really enthusiastic, motivated and very happy to take the initiative which is a quality I love in interns! They were probably the best I’ve had at live events for a long time; a real credit to the college.”
