Sixty-eight students graduated on the day at the ceremony in The Camden where they were joined by their employers, partners and family members. Approximately 180 people were present on the day. The graduates were drawn from two fully subscribed classes for the LVA Diploma in Bar & Food Management which ran from September 2023. 

Donall O’Keeffe, chief executive officer LVA, said: “The LVA offers this Diploma in Bar & Food Management as we believe in investing in the development of staff. We know it is crucial for the longer term prospects of our members and our trade. Good staff are essential for a good pub. It has been designed to meet the needs of our members and to reflect the latest and best practices across the industry. 

“To maximise the impact of the material covered, the Diploma utilises a combination of both active learning and classroom learning. We wanted to make it as practical as possible, utilising role play scenarios, case studies and real life examples to embed the learning in a way that resonates with the students.”
