The Chef de Partie apprenticeship will prepare you for supervisory responsibilities within a kitchen, as you learn complex techniques and use your creativity to design recipes and menus, which may be showcased in the College’s restaurant, Horizons.
You will be given the opportunity to learn from local and nationally acclaimed chefs. You will gain practical experience in menu planning, as well as attending professional workshops and participating in industry-recognised competitions.
Upon completion, past apprentices have gone on to prosper as senior or head chefs, or have progressed to a foundation degree related to hospitality.
"I grew up helping my parents with the cooking which inspired me to choose Hospitality and Catering. I progressed through the levels at College which gave me the courage to find a work placement. The staff share their industry expertise and they teach in fully equipped training kitchens."Harrison Dyer-Cole
