Expanding cookery skills, to enhance your food offer
This programme is aimed at the most junior culinary role and its primary objective is to teach a range of key skills on the job.
This course takes a minimum of 12 months to complete.
Working as a Commis Chef is a great way of getting started in a kitchen and this apprenticeship focuses on food preparation and basic cooking tasks under the supervision of a more senior chef.
Underpinned by a series of kitchen masterclasses, and culinary and development workshops, chefs will learn and understand how to carry out basic functions in every section of the kitchen. This allows future talent to experience, consider and value each section with a view to choosing an area where they feel most inspired.
The learning journey will vary considerably from one individual to the next, however, it is the range of experiences in the basics gained in this role that provide the opportunities to progress to any future senior chef role.
Employers will set their own entry requirements in order to start this apprenticeship.
