An apprenticeship is a funded programme where an individual learns new skills, knowledge and behaviours in a chosen sector. An apprenticeship will enable you to work and earn a wage whilst developing and gaining new skills as an employee.

Alongside your day-to-day duties, you will complete the Commis Chef Level 2 Apprenticeship. This is a nationally recognised qualification, and the primary objective of the Commis Chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. You will either be attending college 1 day per week or you will learn 'in-unit'.You will be supported through this qualification by your Personal Development Coach who will visit you at your place work every 6-10 weeks. You will also attend 6 workshops including an Introduction Day at a location outside your normal place of work. All travel expenses will be covered by your employer. You are not expected to complete any of your Apprenticeship work outside of your normal working hours and will be given set time each week to complete your work.

What you'll be doing:

Working in one of our fast-paced kitchens, which could be anything from a football match to a concert, or even an NFL game. You will spend time in each area of the kitchen, develop a range of culinary skills and be fully supported to become a Qualified Commis Chef.
The dishes you cook each day will count towards your qualification and you will be given the time to attend dedicated workshops with your trainer and other apprentices, as well as one to one support in your place of work from a dedicated tutor.
Within 12 months, you will be on your way to becoming a culinary star of the future.
We will make every effort to develop your skills and knowledge so that with time, and hard work, you could potentially even become one of our Head Chefs.
