Durham College culinary students in Peru

Durham College

Three Durham College (DC) students gained international experience and perspectives on their chosen fields during a week-long visit to Peru. The trip was part of an institutional partnership between DC and the Centro Experimental de Formación Profesional (CEFOP), a technical and vocational college located in the city of Trujillo, Peru.

Travelling with DC’s delegation of employees and students was Travis Fortnum (Journalism – Web and Print), Vik Panjwani (Digital Video Production) and Kyle Rist (Culinary Management), who went to Peru to document and celebrate the partnership between the two schools.

The partnership with CEFOP was formed in 2015, with a view to having DC and its Peruvian counterpart share culinary arts expertise. It is part of DC’s extensive commitment to supporting international education and training for its students and employees, allowing them to learn about industry best-practices, gain global perspectives, exchanges ideas and incorporate them back into the local curriculum.
