This course is for anyone who wants to improve their skills and knowledge in professional cookery or front of house service in a restaurant or bar. You will get the chance to practise your skills at the East restaurant on our Lowestoft campus and through working at college functions and events.

Work experience is part of the course and previous students have worked for Tom Kerridge, Jamie Oliver and Raymond Blanc. We also have a wealth of opportunities with local employers including The Hotel Victoria in Lowestoft, the Cliff Hotel, Broadview Wine Bar, Jojo’s, the Marine Pub, the Randolph Hotel, the Brudenell Hotel, Sgt Peppers and many more.

Why study with us:

  • We have great links with local and national employers, making us the first stop for many employers looking to recruit.
  • You will undertake training and assessments in our popular East Restaurant, preparing and serving lunches, afternoon tea and dinners to the public
  • You will visit London food markets, Michelin starred restaurants, taster sessionsand meet local employers from Moss and Co, The Hotel Victoria, Morston Hall and more.


You will need to have achieved three GCSEs at grade 3 or above.



Technical competence is assessed by observation which is tracked and maintained individually by each student. The programme is monitored by internal quality assurance and external verification by City and Guilds.


You can progress on to Professional Cookery Level 3.

Many of our students progress to an apprenticeship or go straight into employment after impressing businesses during work placements.

Career opportunities include a chef (professional cookery or production), restaurant management, food and beverage service, bar and barista, conference and banqueting and school and residential home food production service.
