Six students from Inverness have celebrated their graduation from Diageo’s Learning for Life programme in a special ceremony hosted at The Whitehouse.

The bartender training programme offers opportunities to young unemployed people in the UK to get into hospitality careers.

The six-week course in Inverness was delivered by Diageo partner, The Springboard Charity.

Among the students was Kseniia Hranovska, a refugee from Ukraine.

“This is my first experience working in hospitality, so I didn't even know what to expect from this course," she said. "When I first joined Learning for Life, my mental health wasn't very good. During the course, I met a lot of good people and I had a lot of fun and now I feel much better."

Two participants from the course have already secured full-time roles with Inverness hospitality firm Cru Holdings.
