A recent survey commissioned by Le Cordon Bleu London has found that 52% of British residents dream of changing a hobby into a career. However, over a third feel they may be underqualified to make their desired move, while 52% say finance would be the biggest barrier to changing career.
The survey results come as Le Cordon Bleu London announce the launch of the Julia Child Scholarship, proudly supported by Reed Hospitality & Leisure.
The scholarship will offer one aspiring chef the opportunity to pursue their true passion. The scholarship is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone who may have aspired to a career in food but, for whatever reason, up until now has been on a different path.
Bill Dawes, Area Manager at Reed Hospitality & Leisure, explains why we’re supporting the scholarship:
"At Reed Hospitality & Leisure, we often come across people who want to change their career path. We know this is never easy, which is why we're delighted to support Le Cordon Bleu in offering one lucky individual the chance to pursue their dreams."
