What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This course is for those looking to gain a qualification and take the first steps to working in a professional kitchen. You do not need to have any experience or be working in the industry already, but must have a passion and drive towards a career as a Professional Chef. You will learn the skills of a Chef through practical and theory classes one day a week over the academic year.
During the programme you will cover both preparation and cooking methods involved with meat, fish, poultry and vegetables. You will also cover soups, stocks, sauces and hot and cold desserts. Your progress will be monitored through ongoing assessment and testing. There may be enrichment sessions offered throughout the course which could involve industry visits or guest speakers.
