There will also be the opportunity to start to develop your skills for upscaling for functions and events and we will connect you with local employers for work experience.


This course is suitable for students who have achieved at least three subjects at GCSE at grade 4 or above including English and maths.



Your practical skills will be assessed by observation while working in our popular kitchens. Class-based lessons are designed to give you the knowledge to work successfully in the industry and are tested by short answer questions.
