Overview

A Senior Production Chef will learn advanced cooking techniques and is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen.

Choose this course if you want to build upon your Commis Chef knowledge by learning more in-depth cooking methods and understand how to manage a team and/or section to meet operational and customers’ expectations.

You will:

  • Focus on developing more advanced techniques as a chef
  • Contribute to developing menus and dishes
  • maintain the catering operating budget
  • Check dishes and menu items to ensure they have been prepared to the business specification correctly

Next steps: On completion you can progress to a Level 4 Apprenticeship in Hospitality Management as a kitchen manager or head chef, or progress in to full time employment.

Entry Requirements

Every employer is different and therefore the entry requirements can vary. As a guide, you ideally need GCSE grade 4 in English and Maths and in some cases ICT. However, we will work with you and provide additional support to help you achieve their requirements, either prior to your Apprenticeship via a pre-Apprenticeship or during the delivery of your programme.

Facilities

Hospitality and Catering students will experience the real-life rush of a restaurant, by working in our very own @34 commercial facility, open to the public 5 days per week. Exeter College’s @34 fine dining, teaching and learning restaurant has achieved a prestigious AA College Rosette Award for its quality service and food.

Additional Costs

You will need to purchase a full set of kitchen knives and kitchen whites (uniform) and two reference books.
