There are many anecdotes emanating from the hospitality industry which express, albeit vaguely, a vote of limited confidence in contemporary City and Guilds craft courses on offer in catering colleges in the United Kingdom. These anecdotes provided a starting‐point from which to begin a survey (undertaken in both catering colleges and industry) in search of information which would either lend support to these feelings or suggest that they were unfounded. It was concluded that criticism directed specifically at unrealistic conditions existing in colleges especially in food production and service areas was justified and many industrialists felt the need to provide their own training for new employees from colleges.
