Club Doncaster Sports College students have been treated to a virtual cooking masterclass from Mike Beaton, the Commando Chef from the Royal Marines Educational Awareness Team.
Mike delivered an engaging and educational hour-long session to students, in which he taught them how to fuel their performance with his famous 'Chicken Curry in a Hurry'.
The session also looked at healthy eating and cooking options, as well as his pathway into the marines, career advice and even tested the learners with a quiz as he cooked.
Royal Marines EAT has travelled the length of Britain and this was Mike's second time with the CDSC students, engaging them through the subject of food and using it as a platform to enthuse, inspire and educate young people, encouraging them to think about their next step in life.
Active IQ Tutor William Biggs said: “The link with Mike has been excellent for our learners and the college. Mike brings knowledge, skill and enthusiasm in abundance and he had over 30 students hooked for a full hour in the virtual session.
“At the Sports College, we're passionate about progression from our courses and our Year 13 students get a real insight into opportunities in the Royal Marines and Mike offers some very pragmatic advice about the sports industry in general.
“On behalf of the college, I'd like to thank Mike and Royal Marines EAT for another fantastic session”.
