Introduction to Professional Cookery
Full time, 18 weeks
For entry to this course you don’t need any formal qualifications - what you must have is a real interest in cooking and a desire to work in the fast paced and highly enjoyable hospitality industry. You’ll also need to come in for interview.
This is a ‘hands on' course which will introduce you to what’s involved in working in an industrial kitchen, and help you develop the skills and techniques you’ll need for working in hospitality.
You’ll start by learning about different food products and how to prepare food for cooking. You’ll handle meat, fish, rice and pulses, plus there will be plenty of vegetable slicing and chopping, just like you see the professionals doing on TV!

Along the way, you’ll learn about various aspects of working successfully in a kitchen, such as food hygiene and safety. We’ll also help you develop your skills for employment, including working as part of a team.
This course includes a lot of real work experience in a variety of industry outlets.
