The course is designed to suit anyone coming in with no experience of a professional kitchen, or if you have completed our August start programme.
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 work with a wide range of ingredients to produce dishes at restaurant standard - just like you see the professionals doing on TV! You’ll also do a bit of baking, including bread and dough.
You’ll build transferable Essential Skills in meaningful contexts to help you become more effective in life, learning, and work. This could be communication, numeracy, ICT, working with others, and problem solving.
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.
